Majid Jordan burst onto the scene in 2013: the previously-unknown duo were credited on Drake’s biggest pop hit to date, “Hold On We’re Going Home.” Most artists would try to capitalize on this moment of fame by releasing a bunch of music really quickly. Not Majid Jordan—they’ve mostly stayed silent, with the exception of the short but excellent A Place Like This EP that came out last summer. Today they put a fresh 20 minute mix up on OVO’s SoundCloud. It’s cryptically titled [|], and it's full of the up-to-date mixture of R&B and house music that has characterized the duo's two EPs. (Sounds like they spend some time chopping up their old songs "Forever" and "All I Do" as well.) Listen below.
