Majid Jordan are proficient in The Art Of Future Alt-R&B, we know: From everything on their 2014 A Place Like This EP to their eponymous full-length debut last year, they’ve more than proven themselves capable of supplying unapologetically moody, undeniably sexy earworms time and time again.
But what happens when the talented Toronto-based duo – Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman (the group’s singer and producer, respectively) – decide to team up with hit-making production team Stargate, creators of some of the best pop songs of the last decade: “Issues” (Julia Michaels), “Only Girl (In the World)” (Rihanna), “Firework” (Katy Perry), “Radioactive” (Marina and the Diamonds), among dozens of others of masterpieces?
Warm, sensual greatness with subtle winsome danceability… that’s what. “I just wanna lay you down/ I wanna let you know, baby, we don’t/ We don’t need words, let your body talk/ Baby, don’t speak, let your body talk,” Majid croons across the infectious, dancehall beats. “So much to say
This is the only way to say it/ We don’t need words, let your body talk/ Baby, don’t speak, let your body talk.”
“Body Talk” isn’t like anything we’ve heard from Majid Jordan, and yet, this is undeniably the stuff of Majid Jordan. If nothing else, it’s certainly indicative of their willingness to grow and play with different sounds. I AM READY FOR MORE!
