Keith Sweat

So, this morning, a lady called into our local radio station's morning show talking about her 1994 prom experience.  She wrote in her diary that she was extra excited because they played "freak me." Obviously, my husband and I instantly launched into a discussion about that song and who sang it.  We both guessed, Justin said Silk & I said Keith Sweat... neither of us knowing the answer, we went about singing the dirty lyrics of the song and not arguing about it or instantly rushing to the internet to find out who was right  (odd for us.)

My husband couldn't resist and since we usually spend our lunch hour reading other blogs and internet news sites and looking up ridiculous things on google, he looked it up.  Here is the email I received:
So it turns out when I said Silk I was right…you also nailed it when you said Keith Sweat…AWESOME!

"Freak Me" is an R&B ballad recorded by Atlanta, Georgia-based vocal quintet Silk in 1992. It was co-written and co-produced by Keith Sweat, for whom Silk was a touring opening act. Sweat also performed this on his 2003 Live Album.
So today, my song of choice is "freak me" by Keith Sweat and/or Silk.

P.S. Apparently, I was 7 when that song came out and I know all the lyrics... something is wrong with that picture - or maybe it's what makes me classy??  More to come on that I'm sure.
