Montell Jordan’s move to create music outside of secular recordings “wasn’t a decision to do gospel album, it was really a decision to go into ministry.” The “This Is How We Do It” singer released his eight studio album ‘Shake Heaven” in November, diversifying his music to reach cross-cultural audiences.
“Part of what I wanted to bring to the table of me making chamber music was the quality of production and quality of sound that the same way a Christian would listen to regular music,” Jordan told YouKnowIGotSoul.
He continues: “I want to make sure that the music that’s being created has the same appeal that would draw in believers and non believers alike; that they would just like good music.”
The new musical direction is delivering Jordan the most rewarding experience of his career. “I get more joy out of seeing people focused and looking toward God than I did when they were looking toward me.”
