WHO IS MAJID JORDAN ?

 

In August , Drake dropped a new song out of the blue: "Hold On, We're Going Home," a dreamy, 100-BPM cut that nicely split the difference between synth-soaked R&B (think Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do with It") and slow-motion deep house (Disclosure's "Help Me Lose My Mind"). The track features someone named Majid Jordan, prompting one feverish question: Who is Majid Jordan?
A good question, but it turns out that the grammar is all wrong. 


We should be asking, "Who are Majid Jordan?" According to a thread on the Kanye to The forums, the name is a hybrid of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, a pair of Toronto producers formerly known as Good People. (Their YouTube page has been stripped, but Tha Good Life Reviews turned up audio of their song "Chill Pad Deluxe.") Some corroborating evidence turns up in the form of a tweet from one Iman Almaskati: "Drakes new song 'Hold On Were Going Home' is perfect! So proud of my cousin for helping produce it and his vocals are amazing."
