Before he made it in the music business, Keith Sweat was working to earn a decent living, but his dream was to be an artist. So he took the money he made from the commodities market at the New York Stock Exchange and used it to record demos. Elektra Records heard a demo and started off with a single deal, and then an album deal. By November of 1987, “Make It Last Forever” debuted and the rest is history.
