King is promoting itself as a tourist destination and we’re just getting used to singing our praises.
Fortunately, others are doing the same, but for different reasons.
Toronto’s Majid Jordan released their first full-length, self-titled record. And there’s one with a very family title – “King City.”
They’ve signed with Drake’s record label, OVO, and Majid Jordan has gone from making music in their University of Toronto dorm rooms to working with the likes of Drake and Beyonce.
The seductive, cinematic video for their third single “King City” is very personal to Majid, who found inspiration in our neck of the woods.
Majid Jordan is a Canadian record producing and performing duo composed of Majid Al Maskati and 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.
Most recently, Majid Jordan released an EP titled A Place Like This. Majid Jordan also co-produced and were featured on Drake’s hit single “Hold On, We’re Going Home” from his platinum selling album Nothing Was the Same.
