Album: Wildest Dreams
Producer: Jordan Ullman, Koz

Blue is often a colour associated with sadness. However, on Majid Jordan’s “Waves of Blue,” they flip the script and create new connotations. The Toronto-based duo’s lead single off Wildest Dreams is about yearning for a deep love with someone that hasn’t necessarily started yet. Majid Al Maskati’s lyrics evoke a sense of earnestness and vulnerability across Jordan Ullman’s glossy and nostalgic production. Even when Majid admits that this mystery woman might not be the best fit for him, he still goes against his best judgement to be with her—a recipe for the perfect toxic love song. —Louis Pavlakos
