Majid Jordan is a Canadian R&B duo, composed of singer Majid Al Maskati and producer Jordan Ullman. They are signed to OVO Sound, the record label co-founded by rapper Drake, producer Noah “40” Shebib and Oliver El-Khatib.
Jordan, originally from Toronto, and Majid, arriving in Toronto by way of Bahrain, met as students at the University of Toronto in 2011. Working between Ullman’s dorm room and his parents’ basement, they launched their first joint EP titled Afterhours on SoundCloud under the pseudonym Good People.
Majid and Jordan first met each other at Majid’s birthday party at a bar in Toronto, Canada, and then later that week, they began working together in Majid’s dorm, releasing their first official single, entitled “Hold Tight”, in just one day, which they posted on Soundcloud anonymously. Producer Noah “40” Shebib was later impressed by their stunning EP, titled afterhours, and he later signed them to Drake’s OVO Sound record label.
