Magic! Perform ‘Rude’ Acoustic [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]

by | PopCrush

You know that song that’s taking over the radio waves? Yep, that’s ‘Rude’ by Magic!, one of PopCrush’s top picks to be the song of the summer!

Magic! totally got us psyched for warmer weather when they stopped by the PopCrush office in New York City to perform a stripped-down version of ‘Rude’ for us. With its reggae vibe, easy-going beat and catchy melody, this song is perfect for laying out at the beach or relaxing by the pool.

“Why you gotta be so rude? / Don’t you know I’m human too? / Why you gotta be so rude?/ I’m gonna marry her anyway,” the band sings.

While we’re definitely digging the upbeat version that’s been gracing the radio waves pretty much everywhere, we love this stripped-down rendition as well. It’s just as breezy, but also strongly conveys the emotion behind the lyrics.

Check out Magic!’s performance of ‘Rude’ in the video above!
