Have you ever met someone and were immediately in sync, to the point where there was something that could only be described as magic between you? In 2011, two Canadian college students had this experience. After initially meeting in a bar one night, these two guys managed to put out a single onto Soundcloud in one day, and the rest is history.
Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman met at the University of Toronto and between Ullman’s dorm room and parent’s basement. The duo worked together, tireless hours to create their impressive extended delay Afterhours which they released soundcloud. The EP was noticed by producer Noah “40” Shebib and the tracks got them signed to OVO Sound, Drake’s record label.
Since then, the R&B duo has been creating, working with Drake and writing for themselves. In 2013 co-produced Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and we credited on the track. The track went on to be Drake’s most successful song in several countries. And then in 2014 the duo released their first official single together through SoundCloud and their first official extended play A Place Like This which was released digitally by their record label OVO Sound. They went on to create three music videos from the EP for their songs “A Place Like This,” “Her,” and “Forever.”
In February 2016, Majid Jordan released their first official album with OVO Sound titled Majid Jordan, which features a song with Drake titled “My Love.” Shortly after the release the duo announced their first ever North American tour.
With a brand new album out as of October 2017, Majid Jordan is coming to South Bend to wow us with their talent and heart. Songs like “One I Want” and “Gave Your Love Away” from their newest album titled The Space Between are catching serious traction across the world and we get to see these talented guys perform them live! This hard working crew is becoming more and more successful and popular with their new music and they are guaranteed to bring us a party.
Look them up, watch their videos,listen to their music, and then bring your crew out for an incredible opportunity to see these guys do what they do best. On Thursday, February 22 Legends Nightclub is excited to welcome Majid Jordan and the entire ND, SMC and HCC community for a night of R&B and amazing talent.
