"Rude" By MAGIC! May Be Addictive!

 

You know that one song we always play that gets stuck in your head? Well, careful, it actually might be addictive!

MAGIC!'s hit song "Rude," is rather catchy. So catchy that it has been the number one song on Billboard’s Hot 100 for five weeks straight.

MAGIC! singer Nasri wasn't always on board with doing the song. It was the band's guitarist Mark Pelli who convinced him to do that song.

"He was just fighting for it and I was just like, 'I just don’t like it,'" Nasri said in an interview with ABC News Radio. "I think it was too catchy. I was just like, 'I can't stand this thing.'"

The deciding factor for Nasri was the song’s story of asking his girlfriend's father his permission to marry her.

"I never thought it was a hit...[but] everybody was just like, 'This is a big song,' and I was like, 'Hey, let's do it,'" Nasri told ABC News Radio.

Nasri thinks the song is comparable to a drug.

"I think people just love the sound and, you know, the catchiness and the reggae," Nasri told ABC News Radio. "It's just become, almost like, [as] my drummer Alex says, 'crack,' y'know?  Everyone is just, like, addicted to the sound of it."

That’s right Nasri, we are addicted.
