Montell Jordan hosts album release party at City Winery: Next month marks 25 years since a young singer named Montell Jordan officially arrived on the music scene, as his debut single “This Is How We Do it” hit the airwaves and began a steady climb to the Number One spot on the music charts. Now, the Metro Atlanta resident is back with a new album, which he’ll celebrate with a live show at one of the city’s top venues.
Montell Jordan’s Masterpeace album release party is happening Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. at City Winery Atlanta. The new album (along with its lead single, called “When I’m Around You,” featuring Lecrae) marks a return to R&B for the singer-songwriter, who moved from making popular music to ministry after releasing a string of hits through the late 1990s. Jordan currently serves as the executive pastor of music, marriage, and men’s ministry at Victory World Church in Norcross, and released a book with his wife Kristin in 2017, titled This is How We Do It! Making Your Marriage A Masterpeace.
Masterpeace was released on November 29th, and contains ten new R&B-flavored tracks (including one called “I’m All In” featuring his wife) which Jordan says comprise a soundtrack for married couples. He’ll perform some of those new songs at the City Winery show; doors open at 6:00 p.m., and tickets range from $50 to $65.
Before taking the stage at City Winery Atlanta, Montell Jordan stopped by the venue to chat with us on Good Day Atlanta.
