We’re always over at @complexmagazine looking for music to make our day in the morning. Thank god this morning we stumbled across more Majid Jordan and their newest hit, “King City.”

With less than a month away from the release of their self-titled debut album, Majid Jordan share a new record in “King City.” This one is more somber in tone than their previous track, “Something About You,” and definitely plays up the electro-R&B style the duo has been honing for sometime now. If you’ve been sleeping on Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman’s chemistry, take this as an opportunity to catch up. Bump “King City,” which you receive free of charge for pre-ordering Majid Jordan’s upcoming project on iTunes here.

Perhaps you’re more familiar with Majid Jordan's most recent single, “Something About You.”

If not, trust us, there’s definitely something about Majid Jordan that keeps us coming back for more. Look for them to be bigger than you ever expected very very soon.

“I’ve never felt like, ‘Oh, people will bite at anything that’s Drake,’” he says. “I’m just not that guy. I don’t feel that way about any of my music… If it didn’t connect, I would have a huge problem.” (Drake)

“I mean, I’m really trying. It’s not like I’m just sitting here, just fuckin’ shooting with my eyes closed. Like, I’m trying. I’m really trying to make music for your life.” (Drake)

“It was like an offering—that’s what it was. It was just an offering. I just wanted you to have something to start the year off. I wanted to be the first one. I wanted to set it off properly.” (Drake … on If You’re Reading This)

“I always used to be so envious, man, that Wiz Khalifa had that song ‘Black and Yellow,’ and it was just a song about Pittsburgh,” Drake says. “Like, the world was singing a song about Pittsburgh! And I was just so baffled, as a songwriter, at how you stumbled upon a hit record about Pittsburgh. Like, your city must be elated! They must be so proud. And I told myself, over the duration of my career, I would definitely have a song that strictly belonged to Toronto but that the world embraced. So, ‘Know Yourself’ was a big thing off my checklist.” (Drake)

“I’ve just become really adamant about leaving fragments in everything I do that belong strictly to my city,” he says. “The world will pick up on it.” (Drake)

“I just want to be remembered as somebody who was himself. Not a product.” (Drake, again)

As many rung in the New Year’s with close friends and family, Drake did just that, but also shut down an entire venue in the process.

Sporting a clean tux with his familia, Drizzy held court at Marquee Nightclub inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, counting down the last moments of 2014 before delivering a medley of his New Year must-hear anthems. From “Started From the Bottom” to “Trophies” and “We Made It,” the T.O. star ushered in 2015 in the best way possible. When asked for his New Year resolutions, the “6 God” maintained, “New Year, same me.”

Elsewhere during the night, Snoop Dogg manned the DJ ones-and-twos at TAO Nightclub at The Venetian, while DJ Khaled made it clear that “All I Do Is Win” at LAVO inside The Palazzo. Check out some of the festivities above.

Thank You, Drake - "0-100"


We love Drake for putting at least 32 songs into one track. So … do us a favor and listen to “0-100” … like right now.





During the middle of Summer Jam, Drake drops new music in “0-100.” This is a song we have heard Drizzy previewing in recent weeks, and luckily, he felt generous enough to bless us on this Sunday. Drake promises new music from himself and the rest of the OVO crew on the record, including teasing his next album for Spring of 2015.

Watch Kanye West and Drake play nice in Toronto

In a surprising turn of events tonight at the 2013 OVO Fest in Toronto, Drake brought more than a handful of friends to the festival. Starting with The Weeknd, a slew of guests from the likes of Wale, Big Sean, J. Cole, Diddy, Ma$e, A$AP Rocky, Miguel all graced the stage and gave the crowd everything they hoped for PLUS WAY MORE.

The most surprising guest of them all was Kanye West, and Yeezus came out to “New Slaves,” then “All Of The Lights” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.” As many know, these two have been throwing subliminals at each other for years now, but it looks like the bad blood is now behind them, reuniting on stage and making history at this year’s event.

The two also had a few words on stage about each other (Kanye said Watch The Throne would not have been possible without Drake’s pressure and Drake said he wouldn’t be rapping if it wasn’t for Kanye). It was bromance to the fullest.
