This Is How We Do IT

"This Is How We Do It" is a 1995 number-one hit song by American R&B singer Montell Jordan. This song, Jordan's first single, is representative of the new jack swing style popular at the time, featuring Jordan singing over an enhanced sample of Slick Rick's "Children's Story." "This Is How We Do It" was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks from April 15 to May 27, 1995, and was number one for seven weeks on the R&B singles chart. This is the first number-one pop hit single in the U.S. to be released by Def Jam, ten years after the record label's launch.

The song has appeared on many dance compilations, including Jock Jams volume 2. When played on Top 40 radio, the song's rap bridge is often edited out. The song ranked #95 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s.

    It may be tempting to focus on the fact that, even among those who support equality, men’s involvement as fathers remains a far distance from what most women want and most children need. Yet it is also important to acknowledge how far and how fast many men have moved towards a pattern that not long ago virtually all men considered anathema.
