    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Rude” is the debut single by Canadian band, Magic!. It has reached the top ten in Australia, New Zealand, United States and Canada.

Background and composition

    “Rude” was originally based on a real-life situation. The lead singer of Magic!, Nasri, had been in an unhealthy relationship with a previous girlfriend. One day, after his girlfriend had gotten mad at him and started to become harsh, Nasri began singing the lines “Why you gotta be so rude/ don’t you know I’m human too” in what he describes a “dark vibe.” However, the concept didn’t work with the band well so it was revised and eventually made into a man talking to the disapproving father of his lover. “Rude” was written by Nasri, Adam Messinger, Mark Pellizzer, Ben Spivak and Alex Tanas, and produced by Adam Messinger. According to the sheet music published by Sony/ATV Music Publishing at, “Rude” is a reggae fusion song set in common time with a tempo of 72 beats per minute. This song is written in the key of D♭ major.
