The SoulBack R&B Podcast: Episode 41 (featuring Montell Jordan)
The #SoulBackPodcast is becoming a big deal so it’s only fitting that we have the tallest man in R&B on this week’s episode. We bring in Montell Jordan to the episode to breakdown his history in the music. Along with having one of the most recognized party anthems of all time (“This Is How We Do It”), the 6’8 hitmaker also wrote two of the most popular songs of the 90’s (“Incomplete” by Sisqo and “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here” by Deborah Cox. We also talk to him about the unreleased Queen project with Deborah, Tamia and Kelly Price. We discuss his move to the Gospel world and a possible return to R&B soon. We also touch on new music from the likes of Robin Thicke, Avant and Jagged Edge.
