It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard from Majid Jordan, the acclaimed singer/producer duo made up of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman. Fans were elated to see the duo has officially returned with a brand new new track and stunning visual titled “Waves of Blue” via OVO Sound. Today (June 18), they continue the momentum with the freshly released “Been Through That.” On the track, Majid Jordan starts things off imagining brighter days:
Sunrise, liftin’ you up when it all seems down (It all seems down)/ Radio, woah, oh-oh, play this song ‘til it’s all played out (All played out, ooh)/ You play, you don’t wanna play no games
You don’t wanna play no games, no/ Sometimes you have bad days, but some things you just can’t change/ Your girls ask who you lay with, you don’t wanna say no names (No names)/ Sometimes they have bad days, when you wanna give, they don’t wanna give
The release of Majid Jordan’s 2013 debut EP Afterhours turned heads, eventually capturing the attention of OVO Sound. After co-producing and writing Drake’s 2013 6x-platinum smash “Hold On We’re Going Home” Majid Jordan’s sound catapulted into the mainstream and led them to signing to OVO Sound in later that year in 2013. They released their first official EP A Place Like This in 2014, and then swung back around to share the full-length version in 2016.
The two artists made sure to give a bit of detail about what the song means to them. “Although it sounds like we’re addressing someone in the verse, the truth is we have been both the speaker and listener in all the situations that the song talks about,” Majid Jordan says via statement. “We have been through that, overstretched ourselves, gotten burnt out, acted for the wrong reasons, but we eventually found our feet and now we’re dancing our way out of it.”
