Majid Jordan

Even though they were active since 2011, alternative R&B production powerhouse Majid Jordan didn’t break into the mainstream until they co-produced one of Drake’s most successful singles in 2013. Composed of producers Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, the Toronto-based duo met in 2011 at Al Maskati’s birthday party at a bar and hit it off right away. A week later, they had already recorded and released their unofficial first single “Hold Tight,” published anonymously on the Internet. The release of an EP titled Afterhours under the moniker Good People caught the attention of Drake’s producer Noah “40” Shebib, who swiftly signed them to his OVO Sound label. In 2013, they scored co-production credits on Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” included in his platinum-selling album Nothing Was the Same, and released their debut EP A Place Like This the following year. This was followed by their eponymous full-length in 2016, which peaked at Number 20 in Canada and 69 on the Billboard 200. Preceded by the singles “Phases,” “One I Want” with PartyNextDoor, and “My Imagination” with dvsn, their sophomore effort The Space Between saw the light in 2017 and reached Number 30 in the Canadian Albums Chart. In the following years, Majid Jordan issued a string of standalone singles including 2019’s “Caught Up” featuring Khalid and “Superstar,” and 2021’s “Waves of Blue,” a slick electro R&B track that got to Number 11 on the Hot R&B Songs chart.
