Coming from UMOD from July 6 is This Is How We Do It, a 55-track, three–CD compilation of old-school, feel-good R&B smashes, led by Montell Jordan’s million-selling hit of the same name.
Still, over 20 years after it topped the US singles chart, one of the ultimate summer party jams, the Grammy-winning This Is How We Do It sounds as fresh and fun as ever – and it makes a great starting point for this collection of classic R&B cuts from some of the biggest stars in the genre, including Bobby Brown, Heavy D & The Boyz, Mary J Blige, Blackstreet and Salt-N-Pepa ft. En Vogue.
Some ground-breaking Brits are also featured, including Mark Morrison [Return of The Mack], Soul II Soul [Keep on Movin’] and Bev Knight [Flavour Of The Old School] We have three copies to give away to Echoes readers. Simply email us at editor@echoesmagazine.co.uk, tell us your name and address and answer us one simple question: ‘How do you like to do it?’ The funniest answers [in the opinion of The Editor] will win an album. The rest of you, not so much.
