When Majid Jordan first broke on to the scene, they showed how successful a dance sound mixed with deep R&B lyrics could appeal to the public.

On Majid Jordan, the self-titled debut album, the team creates a stream of hits that are all primed for radio play.

Majid Jordan has entered territory that is comparable to that of Sam Smith and Disclosure every time those two artists collaborate. From the opening track "Learn From Each Other" to it's final offering "Every Step Every Way," the duo has managed to captivate the listener will keeping their feet tapping all at the same time.

It's not easy to make hits out of tracks that feature a chill beat. However, Majid Jordan's breathy vocals and sultry lyrics over these seemingly EDM motivated tracks on acid, proves that it can be done.

The only feature on the album comes from their OVO Sound founder, Drake. Majid Jordan and Drake's "My Love" proved to be a hit with fans upon it's initial release and the track fits the album seamlessly with a hint of island flare.

Other standout tracks on the album include, "Small Talk," "Shake Shake Shake," "Love Is Always There" that has an undeniable 90's R&B sound, "Day and Night" and "King City." Of course, most fans are still bumping "Something About You," but experiencing the Majid Jordan self-titled album in it's entirety is a pretty amazing listening experience.
