"Get It On Tonite" is the lead single released from Montell Jordan's fourth album of the same name. The song was produced by Brian "Lilz" Palmer and Sergio "PLX" Moore, who used a sample of Claudja Barry's 1976 single "Love for the Sake of Love". Thus far, "Get It On Tonite" has been Montell's last significant hit, having made it to number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, to date his last single to do so. It also spent three consecutive weeks at #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs February 5–19, 2000. It sold 800,000 copies domestically.[1] A remix entitled "Get It on with LL and Montell", which featured two verses from labelmate LL Cool J, was also released as a single.

Sampled use[edit]

"Esta Noche"[edit]

In July 2012, he was sampled on Harlem rapper Azealia Banks's first mixtape Fantasea, on the penultimate track "Esta Noche". Pitchfork Media's Marc Hogan praised the track, saying that "the best and penultimate cut on Fantasea, "Esta Noche", points in a promising new direction: conversational, cheater-luring pickup lines over a warmly inviting sample from Montell Jordan's 1999 R&B hit "Get It on Tonite". Critics praised producer Munchi's fusion of electronic dance music and R&B, with the track being named as a highlight of the tape.
