The global success of Toronto-born, Los Angeles-based band MAGIC! continues to rapidly build around the world. Its debut single, "Rude," has charted in more than 35 countries, including the United States, where the infectious single is being played across five different radio formats. It has ranked No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 1 on the U.S. Shazam chart, No. 1 on the Billboard Top Digital Songs chart and it is currently No. 1 on the U.S iTunes Top Singles and Pop charts. The band distills a gentle Caribbean flavor with an arena-size bombast sound that is driven by its expansive approach to songwriting and a strong musical chemistry. Nasri (lead singer/songwriter) and Mark Pelli (guitar) deliver elements of reggae with a pop and rock vibe, while Ben Spivak (bass) and Alex Tanas (drums) inject the rock attitude to create an intoxicating musical experience. On July 1, Latium/RCA Records released MAGIC!'s debut album, "Don't Kill The Magic," which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart.
