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

This is how we do it
La ra ra ra ra ra...

This is how we do it.
It's Friday night and I feel all right
The party is here on the Westside
So I reach for my 40 and I turn it up
Designated driver take the keys to my truck
Hit the shore 'cause I'm faded
Honeys in the street say: "Monty, yo we made it!"
It feels so good in my hood tonight
The summertime skirts and the guys in Kani
All the gangbangers forgot about the drive-by
You gotta get your groove on, before you go get paid
So tip up your cup and throw your hands up
And let me hear the party say

I'm kinda buzzed and it's all because (This is how we do it)
South Central does it like nobody does (This is how we do it)
To all my neighbors you got much flavor (This is how we do it)
Let's flip the track, bring the old school back (This is how we do it)

This is how we do it, all hands are in the air
And wave them from here to there
If you're an O.G. mack or a wannabe player
You see the hood's been good to me
Ever since I was a lower-case G
But now I'm a big G. The girls see I got the money
A hundred-dollar bills y'all

If you were from where I'm from then you would know
That I gotta get mine in a big black truck
You can get yours in a '64

Whatever it is, the party's underway
So tip up your cup and throw your hands up
And let me hear the party say

I'm kinda buzzed and it's all because (This is how we do it)
South Central does it like nobody does (This is how we do it)
To all my neighbors you got much flavor (This is how we do it)
Let's flip the track, bring the old school back (This is how we do it)

Rap:
Check it out!
Once upon a time in '94
Montell made no money and life sure was slow
All they said was 6'8" he stood
And people thought the music that he made was good
There lived a D.J. and Paul was his name
He came up to Monty, this is what he said
You and OG are gonna make some cash
Sell a million records and we'll make in a dash

I'm kinda buzzed and it's all because (This is how we do it)
South Central does it like nobody does (This is how we do it)
To all my neighbors you got much flavor (This is how we do it)
Let's flip the track, bring the old school back (This is how we do it)
