Keith Sweat Is Flattered For The Shout Outs On “All Me”

If you haven’t heard Drake’s new track that has the internet going crazy, listen to it now “All Me” featuring 2 Chainz and Big Sean.

Back to the story. Complex recently interviewed Keith Sweat, a famous R&B singer from the 90′s. He talked about many things and one of the topics was Drake.

It’s real flattering for someone to be on the top of their game and pay homage and acknowledge who I am and what I’ve done in music and what I’ve done in my career. For him to say ‘I’m the light skinned Keith Sweat, I’mma make it last forever,’ that means I’m still relevant.

What did you think about Drake calling himself the “light skinned Keith Sweat?”
Out of all the R&B artists that have come out, I think my name has been used most in hip-hop songs. It’s real flattering to know that someone who is on the top of their game will still acknowledge my music and what I’ve done. I’m a big fan of hip-hop anyway, I’m most definitely a fan of Drake, he’s at the top of his game, you can’t be mad at him. His music is melodic as well as edgy.

Are you a big fan of his?
It’s real flattering for someone to be on the top of their game and pay homage and acknowledge who I am and what I’ve done in music and what I’ve done in my career. For him to say ‘I’m the light skinned Keith Sweat, I’mma make it last forever,’ that means I’m still relevant. [Laughs.] He’s keeping me relevant. I’ve had great success in my music career and by him using my name, it makes me feel good. People were calling me this morning like, “Drake put you on his new record talking about how he’s the light skinned you.” I had to laugh. For him to acknowledge what I’m doing and my career—you’re not going to use somebody’s name whose not relevant in your record when you’re somebody like Drake.

Maybe we can expect a collab in the future…
I only met him one time in New York, we crossed paths and he acknowledged me and I acknowledged him, I told him I was a big fan. Hopeful
