"Keep Coming Back" is a 1991 R&B-oriented hit song by American singer and songwriter Richard Marx. It appears on his third solo album, Rush Street, and was both written and produced by Marx. The lyrics to the song detail a man's unrequited love for a woman.[1] Working with musicians such as Luther Vandross (who added backing vocals to the track) and keyboardist Greg Phillinganes, Marx sought to explore different musical territory with this single, stating that "I wanted to write an old-fashioned R&B song."[1]

The song became Marx's tenth top-forty pop hit in the United States, reaching number five on Cash Box magazine and peaking at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in late 1991. It also spent four weeks atop the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, reached number three in Canada, and topped the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart for five weeks (two weeks if not counting the holiday period in which no charts were published).

Additional releases[edit]

  • Marx also recorded a Spanish-language version of the song as "Volver A Ti" (Keep Coming Back En Español) on the album, Lo Mejor- Especialmente Para Chile (Capitol 1992).
  • "Keep Coming Back" also appears on Marx', 2012 album and DVD (televised performance) box-set, A Night Out With Friends, with Marx and Sara Niemietz performing a live duet.[2]
