Coolio, TLC, Seal, Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey, Madonna, and a man named Montell Jordan dominated the Billboard® Top Ten songs chart for 1995. “This Is How We Do It” was a breakout new jack swing song that topped the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks and R&B charts for eight.
Jordan, tall and handsome with a silky-smooth voice, established himself as a powerful presence in music, brimming with talent, savvy and charm. Over his nearly twenty-year career in music, Jordan has released seven studio albums, fourteen singles, and is a GRAMMY-nominated artist selling more than 10 million records worldwide.
Jordan recently released his first R&B song in nearly 10 years, “When I’m Around You” featuring GRAMMY award-winning rap artist Lecrae. Modern R&B with a soulful relevancy that’s classic Montell Jordan, the new song dropped on all digital platforms May 2019.
Following years of awards, achievements and accolades that never seemed to satisfy, and in search of significance over success, Jordan stepped away from the music business for some years. “I had to learn who Montell was outside of music to determine that I make music and music doesn't make me.” In that time away, Jordan was able to reevaluate his priorities and ultimately find his passion. Reconnecting with his childhood faith, Jordan now serves as an executive pastor of music, marriage, and men’s ministry at Victory World Church in Norcross, GA to more than 14,000 people from 140 nations around the world.
Musically, Jordan showed an ability to stretch boundaries of genre and style and uses this same ability to influence, impact and inspire today. He and his wife of 20+ years, Kristin Jordan released a marriage book in October 2017 titled, This Is How We Do It! Making Your Marriage A Masterpeace. Montell and Kristin are the parents of five children and recently became “Mimi and Big Poppa” to their first grandson.
Jordan’s musical achievements are still recognized worldwide. In the summer of 2016, Jordan released his autobiography, Becoming Unfamous and is excited to release a new album entitled, Masterpeace early fall this year.
