I know there are a lot of good candidates. And there's better overall albums than "Keith Sweat", even though it was very good. And there are albums with 4-5 great singles. I'm talking strictly about strongest at the very top...the top 2. For my money, I'm taking Twisted/Nobody over anything and everything else.
R. Kelly's 12 Play had Your Body's Callin', Bump n' Grind, and It Seems Like You're Ready
TLC's CrazySexyCool had Creep, Red Light Special, and Waterfalls.

Those two immediately come to mind. Great shout out to Sweat though. I love those songs. Make It Last Forever is my favorite ever from him. I'll keep myself from mentioning Mariah Carey because I guess she's more of a pop star than R&B star.

Yeah forgot about 12 Play...I'd definitely take Your Body's Callin/It Seems Like You're Ready over the Keith Sweat joints too.

Maxwell Ascension/Til the Cops Come Knockin comes to mind as well. Still maintain that Urban Hang Suite might be the best R&B album of the 90's. Easily top five for sure.

Oh, by the way, I just heard Anita Baker's version (just recently recorded) of Tyrese's lately last night. Anita made this her song. LOVE IT:

Like this:

Anyway, to answer your question...

Me personally I'd take Feenin/Cry for You over Twisted/Nobody. Might take Half on a Baby/When a Women's Fed Up over it.
Got it, thanks.

Feenin/Cry for You is a strong 1-2 contender, definitely.

I don't rate Half On a Baby that highly though. It was good, but not great or all that memorable to me. When a Women's Fed Up is great, one of my favorite R songs. But if I was going with R's best 1-2 singles punch of the 90's, I'd go with Bump N Grind/ Your Body's Callin', personally.

You're taking it to 3 though, which changes the discussion! I agree, TLC and R had a better top 3 right there, because Keith's "Just a Touch" was good but not great. Shit, TLC had like 5 of them, I loved Diggin' on You.

Others definitely had a better top 3, 4, 5.......and you guys have named some good contenders for "top 2". But I'm sticking with Keith, Twisted/Nobody were and still are "IT" to me.

And yeah, Make it Last Forever was an incredible song, and that was also a very good album. Keith's run from 1987-1997(from debut album to the LSG album) was really, really good.

And as for Mariah.....yeah I definitely considered her "pop" and not R&B for most of the 90's. I think Butterfly was the shift to R&B, and after that she pretty much made R&B music IMO. Breakdown with Bone Thugs.....that still goes to me.

And that Next - Too Close up above....great song too. It makes me look back at how many hits Kay Gee produced, for a cat who is almost NEVER mentioned now as one of the great producers of that era. But beyond all of the obvious Naughty By Nature hits, he had some big R&B hits too with "Too Close" and "Wifey" for Next, Hey DJ for Zhane, some of those Jaheim joints. He quietly made a lot of hits over a good 10 year span in both hip hop and R&B.

My favorite Sweat song is Right and a Wrong way. I always felt like Sweat "sung" more in the late 80's, and by the mid 90's he was just whining and begging on his songs although they were still great songs. (Got them all on the iPod so what's there to complain about)

My Aunt can't stand Sweat. She refers to him as "his begging ass" each time his name is brought up.

If I had to rank my top five favorite Keith Sweat songs, it would probably be like:
1)Right and a Wrong Way
2)Nobody
3)Twisted (the chorus more than anything)
4)How Deep is Your Love
5)Make it Last Forever

I want to discuss Boyz II Men's "later career"that 97-2002 period where they supposedly fell off but were still an active group and not a nostalgia act(more on that in a minute), later meaning after their first two albums where they were arguably the biggest musical act in the world.

I know Evolution is generally considered a "disappointment" as it didn't sell like the first two and has always gotten mixed reviews.......but I loved that album, then and now. To me, they were vocally at their best on that. 4 Seasons of Lonliness, Doin' Just Fine, Never....they killed those. The cover of Can You Stand the Rain was amazing, A Song for Mama.....love those. And I always regarded "Girl in the Life Magazine" as a tongue in cheek, let's sing something ridiculous like we're dead serious and make it sound damn good too. Maybe they actually were dead serious, which would be very corny......but vocally, that song sounds great.

Nathan Michael Shawn Wanya was a bit uneven, but there are some great songs there too like Thank You In Advance and I Do.

And I really loved Full Circle, I thought that album was outstanding and one of their best. That's Why I Love You, Lovin You, that interlude(forget the name) starts with "Tonight will be different....", Oh Well, On The Road Again, Right On Time......that album was outstanding to me.

To me, there was NO FALLOFF in that period, they were still a great group. It's just that R&B groups weren't really hitting anymore like they were in the early-mid 90's. The fans were on some wack shit then, lots of flavor of the month B2K bullshit, the pop boy band craze, etc. But Boyz II Men were still doing their thing, making good-great R&B music.

Now they made a big career mis-step by turning themselves into a nostalgia act by making all those albums singing other people's hits and re-recording their old hits and all that......that's for groups where guys are in their 50's and shit to do, these guys were only in their 30's. Maybe ithey felt it was better financially to do that than making new albums, who knows. But to me, it presented them as a way older group than they actually were, and was a mis-step. I know they've put a few new albums of original material out since, that I haven't checked and need to at some point. Mike leaving hurt too.
