In this sick visual the two Canadian artists hit the desert, whip the sick Drop Top Wop, and watch smoky paint cans explode all around them to explain an experiential phase as someone in a new country. Majid Jordan touch on the different cultures, new places, new people, and how their lives are changing.
Can you imagine being someplace where you didn’t know anyone and you had to chill?
I came to this country, didn’t know a damn thing
18 year old and in need of planning
Thought I was ready, I wasn’t ready
Guess it’s me and myself again
Time to go make some friends
Find me somebody to keep me safe
Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman came together in 2011 to create Majid Jordan. The Canadian duo hail from Toronto, Majid, arriving in Toronto by way of Bahrain, and are signed to Drake and 40’s OVO Sound label.
It’s crazy to see how far they have come from meeting one another in college at the University of Toronto. Before Majid Jordan had an actual studio they would work between Ullman’s dorm room and his parents’ basement.
They launched their first joint EP titled Afterhours on SoundCloud under the pseudonym Good People. After 40 caught wind of their EP and was impressed by their work he decided to sign them to OVO.
Since that impression, Majid Jordan has gone on to co-produce Drake’s track “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” the single off his platinum-selling album Nothing Was the Same.
“Hold On, We’re Going Home” went on to become Drake’s most successful single charting in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
I was just sitting here and then bam all these twitter notifs started popping up. And I saw Majid Jordan posted the "phases" video😭
