Majid Jordan – A Place Like This (video)

Majid Jordan, the duo best known for their work on Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home,” are prepping their new EP and “A Place Like This” acts as the lead single and title track for the project.  As an added bonus, we get visuals at the same [damn] time the song is released, which almost always works as a smart marketing move (you never get a 2nd chance at a 1st impression).  It plays well here (that drop and laser effect at 2:53 is doooooope), and the visuals provide an interesting contrast to the images/messages that we’ve seen from another Toronto alt-R&B artist affiliated with Drake.  As much as people would like to think of that party scene as being all fun and games, it can quickly drag you under if you aren’t careful.

“It’s hard to teach a child when it gets like this //

What they offering you in a place like this //

What they promising you when it gets like this?”

If you’re late to the Majid Jordan bandwagon, be sure you track down their Afterhours EP they released before signing to Drizzy’s OVO Sound label.  Some of my favorite music of the past few years and the new project will surely pick up where that left off.  It drops July 22nd.
