Hit making singer/songwriter Montell Jordan is back with his much-anticipated new CD entitled “Let It Rain”, scheduled for release October 21, 2008. Returning to the R&B block after spending much-needed quality time with his family, Montell heats it up with sizzling singles like “Not No More,” the title track "Let It Rain," plus a surprise for hip-hop fans: a collaboration with Doug E. Fresh.
Montell describes the journey to his seventh release."In 1996, I had an opportunity to work with Slick Rick, a legend of hip-hop. 12 years later, things come full circle and I was able to connect with Doug E. Fresh and work with him on "Left Alone.""
"As an R&B artist who has always been embraced by the hip-hop community, working with icons like Ricky & Doug, Master P, LL Cool J, Bone Thugs & Harmony and Redman is a testimony to my love for hip-hop and my dedication to R&B music."
“Let It Rain” is a culmination of his real-life experiences of drama, pain and joy and Montell’s sexy swagger comeback is getting excellent reviews. The timeless R&B artist is a magnet to the mature and sexy crowd while still keeping hip-hop fans entertained.
