You may not know the names Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman of the house-R&B group Majid Jordan, but you know their work. The two co-wrote the Drake hit, “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” And on February 5th, the duo released their own self-titled album via Drake’s label, OVO Sound, in partnership with Warner Bros.
