For the Cool in You is the third studio album by American R&B musician and songwriter Babyface. The album was released on August 24, 1993. The album reached number sixteen on the US Billboard 200 and at number two on the Top R&B Albums chart. The album spawned four singles, the lead single (and title track) "For the Cool in You" (US #81, R&B #10), "Never Keeping Secrets" (US #15, R&B #3), "And Our Feelings" (US #21, R&B 7) and "When Can I See You" which became his biggest (and third) top-ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number four, and reaching number six on the Hot R&B Singles chart.

The album received a nomination in the category of Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 36th Grammy Awards.
