Majid Jordan: Waves Of Blue

By Kerry Doole

Majid Jordan - Waves Of Blue (OVO Sound): We last heard from the hit singer/producer R&B/pop duo Majid Jordan (Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman) in 2019, with the track Caught Up ft. Khaled. MJ has reportedly been hard at work writing and recording since then, and the first result, Waves Of Blue, was released on Friday.

The track features a mellow groove atop which the plaintive and gentle vocals of Al Maskati shine. This setting suits the romantic lyrics: "We’ll be riding the tide in the sky so alive on waves of blue."

In a label press release, the group explains that “Waves of Blue is like staring at the ocean. You’re not in the water, but you’re still getting carried away by its currents. It’s the story of someone’s desire to love and be lost in that love. Waves of Blue was made at the very beginning of this album, and it only makes sense that we begin our next chapter with this song."


Majid Jordan first made a mark with 2013 debut EP Afterhours, and that same year they co-produced and wrote Drake’s 2013 6x-platinum smash Hold On We’re Going Home. That was followed by another EP, A Place Like This, an eponymous, full-length version in 2016, and another full album, The Space Between, in 2017, featuring contributions from OVO labelmates PartyNextDoor and dvsn. Following the next chapter should be interesting.
