Magic!'s Nasri Atweh tells Rolling Stone that he wrote "Rude" in about 15 minutes because his girl was being rude. ''Yeah, it was a rough night, and she was mean. The next day, I was just writing: "Why you gotta be so rude? / Don't you know I'm human too?" That hook really stuck with Mark more than me — I didn't care. He kept saying, "You gotta write that song." I was like, "I don't like it." And then I played the hook for Adam one day, and he was like, "You should try it more happy." He was playing the guitar and I started singing this whole story. Wrote it in about 15 minutes — it just came out. So, yeah, there's an evolution to the song, but it comes from somewhere real. I think that's why people feel it.''

Lots of rumors that the Beyonce-Jay Z marriage is nothing more than a business partnership right now, and that the breakup will happen as soon as the tour is over. A weekend piece in the NY POST called the relationship crumbling. Brutal writeup, but it all makes sense!
Magic!'s "Rude" is sooooo infectious. Hear it once and your singing "Marry that girl..." over and over. Perfect vid to take you into the weekend! And it doesn't hurt that they are from Toronto, and that's where they attribute their sound. You could certainly hear riffs like theirs all up and down Yonge Street as the neighborhoods and ethnic makeups change!
