Get It On...Tonite

It might seem odd that Montell Jordan’s baby daughter, Sydney, opens GET IT ON...TONITE chanting, "We’re going to have a party," because Jordan’s fourth album is far from a children’s affair. Perhaps the younger Jordan’s inclusion is testament to the wondrous gifts that can spring forth from the intimate encounters that her father is preoccupied with on this disc of up-tempo party songs and slick R&B ballads. Featuring Jordan’s velvety smooth though limited vocal range and naughty-boy lyrics ("I’m in that bedroom/I’m all up in her legroom" on "Can’t Get Enough"), the disc’s hip-hop soul arrangements throb with hot sexuality. A cursory look at the song titles ("Come Home," "What’s It Feel Like (Is It Good?)," et al.) reveal his seductive intentions. Balancing the bump with the grind, the disc’s 14 songs are evenly split between girl-chasing, club-thumping tunes and more romantic, yearning-burning slow jams. Standout cuts are the infectious title track’s bright keyboard twinkles and the shuffling backbeat of the lap-dancing ditty "Why You Wanna Do That?" But it’s on the disc’s penultimate entry, "Once upon a Time," on which Jordan sings of the cat-and-mouse pursuit of his dream girl, that he best balances playalistics with sublime pleasures. After a career marked by hit singles and uneven album efforts, Jordan seems to have found his niche with this consistent release.
