Spotlight: Majid Jordan Premieres This Friday

Tue, March, 20 by TYRONE EDWARDS

Wanna learn more about your favourite artist or band? I do, and I’ve been interviewing most of them for the past seven years. How do we get past the surface, hear stories that you can’t just Google? Is it possible to really spotlight an artist? These are just some of the questions we have been asking ourselves and we have the answer.

Spotlight: Majid Jordan is one the most exciting projects I’ve worked on to date. It means a lot to me personally and professionally and beyond everything else, the boys and I had a great conversation that you’ll find intriguing and insightful.

Fans of of the duo (made up of singer Majid Al Maskati and producer Jordan Ullman) will love this special because the stories let you into their growth as individuals. You’ll learn how much their friendship is valued and hear some cool stories that come along with being Majid Jordan.

The two became friends after meeting at Majid’s birthday party. They got their big break in 2013 when Drake signed the duo to his record label OVO Sound, and were then featured on Drake’s track “Hold On We’re Going Home,” one of his most successful singles to date. Majid Jordan went on to release their self-titled debut album in 2016 to critical and commercial success, cracking the top 10 on the R&B charts.

Majid Jordan’s minimal yet soulful sound stands on its own. Their sophomore release, The Space Between, released late last year, draws listeners in with catchy and smooth beats. The duo are currently on a world tour—don’t miss them when they come to your city!

Watch Spotlight: Majid Jordan on Friday, March 23 at 8E/5P.
