That Patrick Stump, he knows his way around a good medley. And given his love of all things ’90s and all things R&B, it only makes sense that he should make his way to the New Jack Swing era for his next piece de instumrnet-less resistance. “To some people, the 90’s means Grunge,” Stump told Idolator. “To me, it means new jack swing.” Accordingly, the ex-Fall Out Boy frontman makes his way through Montell Jordan’s “This is How We Do It,” Bobby Brown’s “Every Little Step” (’89, but who’s counting), Boyz II Men’s “Motownphilly” and Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison,” singing live over what seems to be pre-recorded a capella accompaniment.

It’s all great fun, of course—though now that he’s taken care of the Soul part of his upcoming album title, we wouldn’t mind to hear an accompanying Punk medley from the same time period. (Our suggested tracklist: Green Day’s “Welcome to Paradise,” The Offspring’s “Self-Esteem,” Rancid’s “Salvation” and Pennywise’s “Bro Hymn.”)
