The duo had us singing “My Love” all summer and now they’re taking over our winter playlist with new track, “Something About You.” Get familiar with our #TELLAFRIEND Artists of the Week, Majid Jordan!
Toronto-natives, Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman formerly known as Good People were first introduced to us on Drake‘s “Hold ON, We’re Going Home.” Since then the emerging duo now signed to Drake’s OVO Sound imprint have been putting their name on the map!
Surprisingly the duo were never always a duo but coincidentally met in college at the University of Toronto back in 2011. Working in Jordan’s dorm room and his parents’ basement they released their first joint EP, Afterhours under the pseudonym Good People.
It was in 2013 that we got the Drizzy collaboration track and a year after that they released their first single as a duo, “A Place Like This” followed by their debut EP A Place Like This.
Fast forward a year after that, July 10th, 2015, Drake premiered the duo’s first single “My Love” from their upcoming studio album on Apple‘s Beats 1 radio during an interview with radio host Zane Lowe.
Today, the guys release their latest “Something About You” and premier it on Power 106 with the L.A. Leakers. This is the lead off their upcoming album and we couldn’t be more excited! This is one act you’re not going to want to sleep on.
