In 1995 wordt This Is How We Do de eerste hit van Montell Jordan. Het nummer is gebaseerd op een sample uit Children’s Story van Slick Rick. Jordan vertelde later negen maanden met het nummer te zijn bezig geweest. In Amerika wordt het een nummer 1-hit, waar zijn Top 40-debuut hier net bijft steken buiten de top 10. In 2000 komen we Jordan nog twee keer tegen in de Top 40 als Get It On Tonite (zijn grootste succes in ons land) en Once Upon A Time in de lijst komen.

Dankzij Joe Stone staat Montell Jordan in 2015 weer in de belangstelling. De Nederlandse dj maakte een nieuwe track en gebruikte daarbij de vocalen van This Is How We Do.


Songtekst

Well here is my story that I tell to you
You may not believe me but I swear it's true
I escaped to Havana for a getaway
In a tiny club with a cuban band on a Saturday

And that's when I saw her from across the room
Like something from a movie or a storybook
She had a short dress with curly hair and chocolate skin
That's how it all began

I remember when she came into my life
And all at once-upon-a-time
Love was in the air
Just like an ocean breeze
And we were dancing to the sweetest melodies
I held her in my arms until she danced into the night
It happened all at once-upon-a-time
Once upon a time

Hifuela mijo tell me what happened next

The next day I was walking to the marketplace
I passed by the cathedral so I stopped to pray
I imagined this journey without my friend
And just like an angel she appeared again
But before I could ask her why she had gone
The Padre started yelling that "She's the one"
And suddenly the Policia were everywhere with chaos in the air

I remember when she had to say goodbye
And all at once-upon-a-time
I could not believe they said she was a thief
And I stood there as they drove her away from me
And what was I to do, now they've accused her of a crime
It happened all at once-upon-a-time

I remember when I couldn't sleep that night
And all at once-upon-a-time
I had to find a way to bring her back to me
So I made a plan of how to set her free
And so tomorrow night, mi amore I will find
It happened all at once-upon-a-time
Once upon a time

So tell me, how did you get outta there?

He disguised himself in sheets
I waited for the guards to fall asleep
Snuck into the tower, took the keys
And then I told the girl, stick close to me
He was in a sword fight 'till the death
Everyone that watched just held their breath
And then he ran
I ran
Jumped
I jumped
Climbed
Faster and faster and faster

Guards, stop him! Don't let him get away, Guards!

I remember when she came back in my life
And all at once-upon-a-time
We made our getaway to another time and place
We were riding while the tears rolled down her face
She knows I can not stay so we'll say our goodbyes tonight
It happened all at once-upon-a-time

I remember when he came into my life
Love was in the air like an ocean breeze
Sweetest melodies
Until she danced into the night
It happened all at once-upon-a-time
Once upon a time
