MAGIC! – Rude + Don’t Kill The Magic

Magic! (stylized as MAGIC!) is a Canadian reggae fusion band, composed of songwriter and record producer Nasri Atweh on lead vocals and Mark Pellizzer, Alex Tanas and Ben Spivak.

In 2013, they released their debut single, “Rude” from their debut album Don’t Kill the Magic released worldwide on July 1, 2014.

The band is signed to Sony Music Entertainment and is also partnered with Latium Entertainment in addition to RCA Records in the USA.

All members of the band are originally from the Toronto area.

The lead singer of MAGIC!, Nasri, had been working with and writing songs for different pop acts prior to the start of the band, mainly alongside Adam Messinger, together known as The Messengers.

He had met Mark Pelli in the studio and within a week they had written the song “Don’t Judge Me” for Chris Brown.

Nasri described the chemistry between himself and Pelli as “different than writing chemistry, it was more artistic.”

A few weeks later, while Mark played a reggae tune on the guitar, Nasri suggested to start a band like “modern-day Police.”

The debut single “Rude” was a great international success. It reached number two in Australia and New Zealand, number six in Canada, and the number one position in the United States.

“Don’t Kill the Magic” was released as the second single from the album, peaking at number 53 on the ARIA Charts.

It also entered the top 40 of Canada at 25.
