Video Vault: “This Is How We Do It” – Montell Jordan

This_is_how_we_do_it

From the vault this week, I give you “This Is How We Do It” from the 90′s swooner –Montell Jordan. I remember the first time I heard this song was at the start of an old Jamaican music programme called “Video Saturday“; it would come on at the start of the programme and we would all sing that catchy piece “…this is how we do it..” – fun times!

It recently came back in my life though due to the good ole “Kinect Sports“; on one of the athletic challenges, when you win, the song comes on and I heard my sister singing that lil piece so I thought – hmmm, I know, that’ll be my video vault!

Montell won’t be ‘doing it’ any more though, the singer took to his Twitter last month to announce his departure from the music scene to be a ‘Worship Pastor’:

This is a formal announcement that after 17 years of performing, 7 albums (including 5 #1 Billboard hits) and countless charted songs, collaborations and features, I am retiring as an R&B recording artist from the music business.

As this chapter in my life ends, I am excited to begin a new endeavor and passion. As of January 1, 2011, I will be entering into full-time ministry at Victory World Church located in Norcross, Georgia. I will be serving as a Worship Pastor; fulfilling a lifelong calling since my childhood. Yes, I will be a licensed minister. It is my desire that my life and future music will reflect my Father in heaven…

Yes, and on that note I give you one of the most recognisable songs of the 90′s – “This Is How We Do It“:
