On their debut, self-titled LP, Majid Jordan step out from behind the scenes to present their best work yet.

HipHopDX

There's noticeable growth from their EP and mixtape in both Majid's singing and Jordan's production.

Billboard

Majid Jordan’s best quality is its intimate feel, sounding like each song is the extension of a conversation and is to be heard by a specific set of ears.

AllMusic

While their sound is rooted in slightly drowsy, electronics-driven studio productions like so many of their peers, they draw more from early-'80s post-disco and synth pop for rhythmic heft.

Pitchfork
Majid Jordan are immovably situated in Drake's shadow, and their self-titled debut doesn't really serve to extricate them.

Consequence of Sound
Majid Jordan’s self-titled debut album solidifies their place as distinct R&B stylists while proving they have the hit-making abilities to belong on a label as commercially potent as OVO.

It's just a shame that Majid Jordan don't let their hair down more often.

After their excellent vocal arrangements on "Hold On, We're Going Home", it'd be reasonable to have hyped up this album. However, it falls short.

This release ended up as a missed opportunity to step out of the shadow of their label boss, Drake.

after releasing nothing that anyone has heard of or cared about (except for the feature on drake's great track hold on we're going home) majid jordan gives us something that manages to bring them into mainstream relevancy. as far as today's charting pop goes, i think this is a solid album. both of these guys can sing well, and have their own unique sound when together. maybe if they didnt play it so safe, we would have an actual chart topper. because of the many filler tracks and the lack ... read more

The production sounds near identical to me on every fucking track. Outside of a few catchy melodies on Make It Work & My Love, this is trash to me.
