Magic! frontman Nasri Atweh admitted to Rolling Stone
that after "Rude
" became a hit, he grew tired of singing it. "I started to feel like a dancing monkey," he said. "I'm definitely a good sport. I had fun singing 'Rude' every time. But when you do it so many times in a row every day you start to feel that way. Especially as creative beings."
The experience ended up inspiring "Dance Monkey."
