"Keep It Comin' Love" is a 1977 disco song recorded by KC and the Sunshine Band. It appeared on their 1977 album Part 3. The song, like its predecessor "That's the Way (I Like It)", became widely successful due to its sexual double entendres. The song shows the influence of island and Caribbean rhythms.

KC and the Sunshine Band version[edit]

"Keep It Comin' Love" peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, but made it to number one on the Hot Soul Singles chart.[2] It was also a minor crossover to the Adult Contemporary chart, peaking at #36.[3] The song was also an international chart hit, reaching #1 in Canada and charting in Australia (#28), Belgium (#5), the Netherlands (#8), New Zealand (#19) and the UK (#31).

The song was featured in the films Private Parts (1997), Blow (2001) Inside Deep Throat (2005), Wedding Crashers (2005) and Freak Out (2006).

It was featured in a 2010 Payless ShoeSource commercial.
