From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Montell Jordan (born December 3, 1968 in Los Angeles, California) is an African-American R&B singer, songwriter, and record producer. Jordan was the first R&B artist signed to the Def Jam label, and became the main male artist on its Def Soul imprint until leaving the label in 2003.


Jordan's first single was the 1995 #1 hit single "This Is How We Do It", and defined his hip hop soul musical style. "The is How We Do It" and its follow-up, "Somethin' 4 Da Honeyz", show a strong hip hop influence, and Jordan's material fit alongside the rest of Def Jam's output. Future hits would include "Let's Ride" with Master P in 1998 and "Get It on Tonite" in 1999.

Jordan left Def Soul in 2003 and released the album Life After Def on Koch Records.

Besides crafting his own material, Jordan has written and produced for a number of outside artists, including 98 Degrees, Deborah Cox ("Nobody's Supposed to Be Here", 1998), and Sisqó (the #1 hit "Incomplete", 2000).
