‘This Is How We Do It’ spent seven weeks at Number 1 in America in 1995, the lyrics tell the story of how Jordan would ‘party’ when he was younger.The song heavily samples Slick Rick’s 1989 ‘Children’s Story,’ which in turn had sampled the 1974 song ‘Nautilus,’ by Jazz musician Bob James, because of this Slick Rick (Ricky Walters,) is given a writing credit, alongside Jordan, and the songs producer Oji Pierce. In 2015 Dutch music producer Joe Stone remixed the song, as a House track, with Jordan providing the vocals, and the song charted in the UK, reaching Number 17.
‘Whatever it is, the party’s underway, so tip up your cup, and throw your hands up, and let me hear the party say.’
