Majid Jordan

Toronto-based duo Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman are known as Majid Jordan, producers of moody alternative R&B and left-field pop. They broke through with their 2013 Drake collaboration "Hold On, We're Going Home" before cracking the Top Ten of the Billboard R&B chart with their debut album, 2016's Majid Jordan. They returned to the R&B chart with their sophomore set, 2017's The Space Between, and have continued to release evocative tracks like "Caught Up" with Khalid and "Stars Align" with Drake, the latter of which was featured on their third album, 2021's Wildest Dreams. They branched out into acting, appearing as the Halal Brothers on the Hulu comedy show Ramy before returning with the 2023 single "Waiting for You" with Naomi Sharon.

Maskati and Ullman initially met and formed Majid Jordan while attending the University of Toronto. In early 2013, as Good People, they released their debut EP, After Hours, as a free download. Later in the year, the Drake track "Hold on, We're Going Home" appeared as a "featuring Majid Jordan" release. The track climbed into Billboard's Top Five that summer, just as it was announced that the duo had signed with Drake's OVO Music. The label released their A Place Like This EP in 2014, while the singles "My Love" and "Something About You" landed a year later.

In February 2016, the self-titled full-length Majid Jordan appeared with one track co-produced by Noah "40" Shebib and three cuts made with Illangelo. The track involving both collaborators, "My Love," also featured Drake and additional production from Nineteen85. It reached number 20 in Canada and number 69 in the U.S. Majid Jordan delivered their sophomore full-length album, The Space Between, in 2017. Included on the record were the singles "Phases," "Body Talk," and "One I Want" featuring Canadian rapper/producer PartyNextDoor. September 2018 saw the duo issue the singles "Spirit" and "All Over You," and in 2019 they released "Caught Up," which featured Khalid. The pair's third full-length album, Wildest Dreams, arrived in October 2021 and included the previously released "Waves of Blue, as well as the Drake collaboration "Stars Align." It reached number 30 on the Canadian Albums chart. On the heels of the album's release, the duo also appeared as the fictional pop group Halal Brothers on season three of the Hulu comedy Ramy. Several standalone tracks arrived in 2023, including "Waiting for You" (featuring Naomi Sharon) and "Different" (with Nonso Amadi). ~ David Jeffries
