Majid Jordan, an R&B duo from Toronto, broke out in a big way when Drake decided to put them on one of 2013's biggest radio hits, "Hold On, We're Going Home." Now they're ready to prove that they can do it on their own too, and are set to release theÂ A Place Like ThisÂ EP on July 22nd.
Today they've shared the title track from that release. It's a moody, minimal piece of music, featuring haunting vocals (that in no way resemble those found onÂ "Hold On, We're Going Home") and a skittering beat that's very much in line with OVO's carefully-curated aesthetic.
It's a difficult place when it gets like this
It's hard to teach a child when it gets like this
What they offering you ain't a place like this
What they promising you when it gets like this
