Montell Jordan Drops ‘The Masterpeace,’ His First Album In Over a Decade

New Jack Swing legend Montell Jordan is back with his eighth studio album and his first studio release in over a decade. Dubbed ‘The Masterpiece,’ the 10-song project follows 2008’s ‘Let It Rain’ and features collaborations with Christian rapper Lecrae, his wife Kristin Jordan, Dove Award winner Crystal Nicole, and more. Heralded by the first single, “When I’m Around You,” which features Lecrae, the LP dabbles in the inspiration and R&B genres with themes of love, relationship, lasting memories, and more. The content is positive and inspirational, and Montell, who retired from music to join the church over a decade ago, sounds unapologetically happy.
