Former child actors notwithstanding, some of the most interesting new R&B acts to emerge in the last few years—Allie, Daniel Caesar, and, sure, even the Weeknd—have come out of Toronto. Add to that list Majid Jordan, a duo consisting of singer Majid Al Maskati and producer Jordan Ullman. Signing with Drake’s OVO Sound, they got their first taste of stardom after collaborating with the 6 God on the 2013 summer jam “Hold on, We’re Going Home.” This year they released their self-titled debut—a slick, polished collection of electro-pop and synthy R&B that manages to flaunt Drake’s influence without letting it overshadow them. Time will tell whether Majid Jordan has staying power, so you might as well catch them now, while they’re still hot. SANTI ELIJAH HOLLEY
