Watch/Listen: Drake pals Majid Jordan on their new soul track “A Place Like This”

Hear what the OVO act's heading towards after "Hold On We're Going Home."

- Jul 8, 2014

OVO Sound is a label that enjoys flaunting its sessions with avant-pop/soul artists like Sampha and James Blake. So it's not surprising that Tom Krell's voice - or at least a very close soundalike - can be heard lingering faintly on "A Place Like This," the new track from Majid Jordan. You know them as the shadowy OVO duo who worked and crooned on the bridge of Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home."

Threads of UK bass music, from two-step and Gold Panda even to Craig David, can be heard throughout the track's frizzled pulse and tenderly produced melancholy (Craig also has a pretty decent new single out btw. Peep dat.) MJ's Instagram lists July 22 as a release date for "A Place Like This," but unless that's a mixtape, I guess they couldn't wait since the video's up too. If you remember Skins you know the vibe: partying and indelicate sadness.

According to the lyrics of Drake's "0 to 100" Majid Jordan's first release is out Spring 2015.
