If for some strange reason we needed more proof that October's Very Own will indeed have 2015 popping, look no further than the latest video from Torontonians Majid Jordan. For the newer listeners out there, Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman gained widespread acclaim for their work on Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home" while keeping busy by dropping their A Place Like This EP last summer. And while the title track and "Her" both received a visual treatment--be sure to check out the latter; it's a masterpiece--I feel that "Forever" is the most ambitious to date. Sonically, their blend of house and R&B is something for everyone to enjoy. The video features a exceptionally talented dancer moving about in the most undercover spots of what appears to be T Dot while also catching some of the city's most scenic areas. The only takeaway is its ending; we wish the track was three hours instead of three minutes. Majib Jordan, please throw us a bone and let us know when the full length will be out.
