Drake Calls Himself 'Light Skinned Keith Sweat', Keith Sweat Is Flattered
Complex called up Keith Sweat after Drake released single 'All Me'. Drake calls himself the light skinned Keith Sweat and Keith Sweat says he is flattered people acknowledge him music. Check out some of the interview below.
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.
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.
Hopefully one day, him and I could do something, I could do a hook. I
could do a cameo in the video, that would be hot.
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.
