There’s this song I keep hearing on my drives around Nashville that’s so amazing!!! 😀
It’s called “Rude” and is about a young man asking his girlfriend’s father’s permission for her hand in marriage and the dad tells him: “You’ll never get my blessing ’til the day you die”. Then he sings: “I’m gonna marry her anyway!” HAHA It’s quite a catchy tune!! Take a listen…

The band is called “MAGIC!” and is a “Canadian reggae-pop band” which is certainly a combination I never saw coming! 🙂 The band is made up of 4 members…well-known songwriter and producer: Nasri Atweh (lead vocals), guitarist Mark Pelli, drummer Alex Tanas, and bassist Ben Spivak.
