"This Is How We Do It" is the debut single by American singer Montell Jordan. It was released by Def Jam Recordings on February 6, 1995 as the lead single from his debut album of the same name. The single was Def Jam's first R&B release.[4]

The song is representative of the hip hop soul style popular at the time,[2][4] featuring Jordan singing over an enhanced sample of Slick Rick's "Children's Story" which in turn samples Bob James' "Nautilus".[3] "This Is How We Do It" peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks from 15 April to 27 May 1995, and was also number one for seven weeks on the R&B singles chart.[5] The single sold one million copies domestically and earned a platinum certification from the RIAA.[6][7]

The song earned Jordan a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 38th Annual Grammy Awards.
