Late R&B star Gerald Levert's recording career will be honored next month, when Rhino releases The Best of Gerald Levert.

The 16-song collection includes the Cleveland singer's biggest hits, including "Casanova" (his breakthrough single, which was recorded with the trio Levert), "Baby Hold on to Me" (a duet with his dad, the O'Jays' Eddie Levert), and "My Body" (which was recorded with Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill as the R&B supergroup LSG).

The set also includes a previously unreleased track, "Can It Stay."
