3. Majid Jordan
In a nutshell Toronto’s Majid Jordan (vocalist Majid Al Maskati and producer Jordan Ullman) serves up some of the sultriest, silkiest and most synth-soaked club rhythms this side of the equator. Why you should care Al Maskati and Ullman first met at the University of Toronto; since then, their alt-R&B recipe has won them the affection of the almighty Drizzy. After co-producing Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” single, they signed with his label OVO Sound and released a hauntingly good EP . Their dreamy down-tempo has been linked to an increased risk of amorous longing.
