Rude by Magic! was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, August 9, 2014 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This story of a would-be groom who asks his girlfriend's father for her hand in marriage was released as their debut single. Nasri was inspired to write the song after an unpleasant encounter with a drunken ex-girlfriend. Eventually Nasri played the hook for Adam Messenger and he suggested the song should be more upbeat. Nasri's love interest in the music video is played by Los Angeles model and actress Ayla Parker. She previously featured in the clip for Washed Out's "All I Know." This won Single of the Year at the 2015 Juno awards. Magic! also won the prize at the ceremony for "Breakthrough Group."
