Majid Jordan released two new songs on Friday.


Majid Jordan, the duo signed to Drake’s OVO Sound label, released a pair of new songs on Friday.

Majid Jordan’s work can be split into two camps: Dancefloor-leaning cuts and downtempo ballads. “All Over You” falls into the first category. There are echoes here of “Gave Your Love Away,” the pair’s finest song to date, as well as the Eighties R&B duo Rene & Angela. The drums are clipped and flat, the bass is in overdrive. Lead singer Majid Al Maskati adjusts his vocal pattern so that it matches the staccato groove of the bassline and it’s easy to imagine dancers adjusting their movements in the same fashion.

“Spirit” is for listeners who frequent the many moody R&B playlists that are popular on streaming platforms right now. The beat is scratchy and agitated, with an eerie falsetto vocal sample that slides through the background. The lyrics come in lusty, confessional bursts: “I’ma ride it until the brakes come off / I never put the blame on you.”

Majid Jordan’s last album, The Space Between, came out in 2017.
