Music Review

Get Up on It (1994)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Keith Sweat; Genre: R&B

Keith Sweat proves that new jack swing hasn't lost its potency with these whiplash R&B grooves and slinky tunes about satisfying love in Get Up On It. If Sweat in his love-man mode occasionally verges on a Barry White parody (''C'mon, baby, let's change positions''), most of the time he's a serenely clever crooner sliding adroitly across a series of undulating rhythms. B+
