Montell Jordan “This Is How We Do It (Viceroy ‘Jet Life’ Remix)”

It’s a common fact: No matter how crappy a day you’re having, hearing Montell Jordan croon out the title of “This Is How We Do It” in the opening seconds of his 1995 debut No. 1 is guaranteed to make all those troubles quickly recede to the left, replaced by the overwhelming feel-good of the…

Mark Morrison “Return of the Mack (Viceroy ‘Jet Life’ Remix)”

Mark Morrison’s “Return of the Mack” may seem a bit cheesy now, but for those who experienced the 90’s, its more than likely that a large chunk of life was spent thinking of the ubiquitous 1996 Euro-R&B smash as a serious capital-j jam, accompanied by many moments of yourself and friends singing along to Morrison’s…
