Montell Jordan

Montell Jordan’s first single was the 1995 #1 hit “This Is How We Do It,” which sampled Slick Rick’s earlier Def Jam hit “Children’s Story”. Jordan followed up his success with “Somethin’ 4 Da Honeyz”. Later hits would include “Let’s Ride” with Master P and “Talk Show” with Shae Jones in 1998 and “Get It on Tonite” in 1999.

Besides crafting his own material, Jordan has written and produced for other artists, including Christina Milian, 98 Degrees, Shae Jones, Deborah Cox (“Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here,” 1998), Lil’ Mo (“Ta Da,” 2000) and Sisqó (the number-one hit “Incomplete,” 2000). The singer had a comical, supporting role in the film The Fighting Temptations as “Mr. Johnson”, an aggressive convict who is very sensitive about his high-pitched voice. He also had a cameo appearance in The Nutty Professor, and he performed on the documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown.
