LOS ANGELES, CA (October 16, 2018) – dick clark productions and Tubefilter announced today that R&B singer-songwriter-producer Montell Jordan will close out the 8th Annual Streamy Awards with his platinum-selling hit single, “This Is How We Do It.” Released in 1995, Jordan’s debut single peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks and was also No. 1 for seven weeks on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. BlameItOnKway, Molly Burke, Sofie Dossi, Katie Angel, Annie LeBlanc, Elle Mills, Jason Nash, Trisha Paytas, Poppy, Andrea Russett, Alyson Stoner, Christine Sydelko and Nick Viall have been added as presenters. Additionally, Olympian Gus Kenworthy will be on hand to present the “Milk-Bone Dog of the Year Honor.”
Jordan joins a long list of legendary artists who have performed their most popular hits at the annual Streamy Awards. Each year, talent from the world of online video and beyond end the Streamy Awards with a fun and nostalgic performance that gets the audience on their feet. Previous artists include last year’s Village People, with the group’s original lead singer Victor Willis back at the helm for the first time since the mid-1980s, as well as Sir Mix-A-Lot, Biz Markie, Vanilla Ice and Starship.
The 8th Annual Streamy Awards will take place at the iconic Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on Monday, October 22 at 9:00PM ET / 6:00PM PT and will stream live globally at YouTube.com/Streamys.
“I’m honored and excited to be a part of the 2018 Streamys!” said Montell Jordan, “Celebrating with a live performance of “This Is How We Do It” is a great way to bring the 90’s party energy to this event with a classic song we have all loved and shared together for nearly 25 years.”
Montell Jordan is one of the most legendary R&B singers of his time, who over his twenty-year career in music has released seven studio albums, 14 singles, and sold more than 10 million records worldwide. The South Central Los Angeles native is best known for his 1995 platinum-selling classic hit “This Is How We Do It,” which spent seven consecutive weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and still resonates in pop culture today. Today Jordan speaks, teaches, mentors, ministers to married couples and continues songwriting and performing.
