“The song wasn’t just something we just had ready and they heard. We got back to Toronto, and they were just starting the beginnings of Nothing Was The Same in 2013,” explained Al Maskati.

He added, “We’re making beats for a few months, and we eventually get to make ‘Hold On.’ I wrote the words over a beat produced by Paul Jefferies (aka Nineteen85).”

At the time, Majid Jordan was creating music in the same studio space as Drake and other OVO members. They eventually passed “Hold On, We’re Going Home” to the platinum selling artist and his longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib.

Al Maskati and Ullman also contributed production/songwriting for Beyoncé’s “Mine” and their own A Place Like This EP. They are prepping to release their self-titled debut album Majid Jordan on February 5.
