Canadian Reggae Band MAGIC!'S "Rude" No. 1 on Billboard Top 100

Posted by Christian Miranda on July 22, 2014

MAGIC! is a Canadian band based in Toronto. They are compsoed of Nasri (Nasri Atweh), Mark Pellizzer, Ben Spivak and Alex Tanas. Their single "Rude" has dethroned Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" for number 1 on the Billboard Top 100 which is one of the world's most prestigious charts for pop music. It is the first Reggae song in more than 10 years to reach the top of the charts.

The band started out on a suggestion that they become the "modern - day Police", referencing the famous English Rock group fronted by Sting. This motivation paid off as they already have two singles, the other being "Don't Kill the Magic", circulating the airwaves. The band is also featured on the Official 2014 FIFA World Cup album with their song "This is Our Time".

Below is the music video for "Rude".
