Keep It Comin' is the third studio album by American R&B recording artist Keith Sweat. It was released on November 26, 1991, and topped the R&B Albums chart upon its debut, while entering the top-20 of the Billboard 200. It spent three weeks on the former, temporarily knocking Michael Jackson's Dangerous off the top portion that time.

The album's title track was Sweat's fourth single to top the R&B chart; two more singles "I Want To Love You Down" and "Why Me Baby" were Top 20 R&B hits. It also features the album cut "There You Go (Tellin' Me No Again)", originally featured on the New Jack City soundtrack months earlier. On February 21, 1992, Keep It Comin' was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, for shipments of one million copies in the United States.[4] This would be the last album where Sweat collaborated with longtime new jack swing producer Teddy Riley until Just Me was released 16 years later.
