Did somebody say ‘new artist’? Well, Francesco Yates is the newest artist from Toronto making noise south of the border, with his latest single and video for “Call”. His sound has even caught the attention of award-winning artist/producer Pharrell Williams, so who knows what these two might come up with!

Toronto-based duo Majid Jordan drop their first official single and music video for “A Place Like This” off their upcoming EP due out July 22nd on iTunes. If you’re unfamiliar with the name Majid Jordan, just think back to that Drake hit record “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and you should remember the feature from the virtually unknown Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman. Pay close attention, because they’ll be releasing a lot more music and visuals over the next few months.
