So by now, you’ve definitely heard Drake’s new single, “Hold On We’re Going Home.” And if not, click here. Anyways, when we saw the titled on Soundcloud (“Hold On” featuring Majid Jordan), of course we instantly thought to ourselves, “Who the hell is Majid Jordan?” Well, we’ve done a little digging and here’s what we found out.
Majid Jordan is actually a singer-producer duo, formed by Majid Al Maskati (singer) & Jordan Ullman (producer). They’re originally from Toronto, and used to go by the name of GOOD People. Obviously, since they’re featured on Drake’s single, people have assumed that they must be signed to Drake. And that looks to be true; Majid Jordan is the latest signee to Drake’s OVO label imprint (joining PartyNextDoor & a rumored big get, Cassie). Their sound is very much like the sound of Drake’s new single. It’s 80’s productions and singing; alot of synths and house inspired party grooves. Clearly, they helped write, produce, and vocal arrange Drake’s new track.
Not much is known about the duo, as for all of their previous media and music has been taken down from the Internet. All except for their, afterhours EP, which you can listen to below:
