Interesting facts and trivia about Rude. By Songfacts®.

Magic! is a Canadian reggae-pop band based in California. They are fronted by producer Nasri Atweh, who is best known for being one half of the songwriting and production duo The Messengers alongside Adam Messinger, (Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never," Chris Brown's "Next 2 You," Pitbull's "Feel This Moment").

This story of a would-be groom who asks his girlfriend's father for her hand in marriage was released as their debut single. "I had this picture in my head of a guy asking a father for his marriage blessing and getting rejected," said Atweh. "It's fun, soulful, easy, and you know the hook right away. That's what we want our songs to do."

The song peaked at #2 in Australia and New Zealand and also reached #7 in the band's native Canada.
