The Charts

How He Did It

March 26, 1995

R&B singer Montell Jordan from South-Central didn't waste any time. With his first-ever single, "This Is How We Do It," he shot to the top of The Times' Southern California pop singles chart. Nationally, it's a smash too, ranking No. 3. Rapper 2Pac's prison sentence doesn't seem to have turned off his fans. His "Me Against the World" album debuted at No. 1 on the pop, rap and R&B charts
