Isolating one song from Majid Jordan's sophomore album The Space Between kind of goes against the idea behind the project. "The album I looked at it like a 50-minute song. So not one of the tracks should be skipped," said producer Jordan Ullman. "This whole thing is seamless. I did all the transitions. It flows, you're not supposed to know when track 3 ends and when track 4 finishes." Coincidentally, "OG Heartthrob" is track 3 on the collection, and while it does bleed seamlessly into the Stargate and Jame Fauntleroy-assisted single "Body Talk," it definitely stands on its own legs. "I'm feeling like I'm 25," Majid Al Maskati sings on the track, reminding us that, at 27, he's still very much a young man, but in a different place than some of his much younger peers. In this way, Majid Jordan feels like a midway point between OVO acts PartyNextDoor and dvsn, falling somewhere between PND's poppier side and the slow burn of Daniel Daley and Nineteen85's songs. "OG Heartthrob" is one of the most immediate, single-oriented tracks on the project, conjuring the warm melodies Majid has been putting forth since we heard him on Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home."
The album, which happens to feature guest appearances from both PartyNextDoor and dvsn, plays as well front to back as the duo have suggested. You can listen to the full project here.
As far as other OVO releases, dvsn just shared their own sophomore album Morning After earlier this month, while PartyNextDoor delivered the spontaneous Seven Days EP in September.
At night your aura turns to blue
Your kisses paint me rouge
You got me wide awake riding on your body wave
Lemme know the time and place
Baby I just want a taste
And I don't like to wait
Come with me, we can party in the city
When nobody else is up
'Cause whenever you're with me
There's nobody catching up
No they won't, I won't let you go
I won't let you go
No I won't, they've all got me wrong
They've all got me wrong
