Gloria

Album: Primary Colours (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This comical story of a hapless guy and his cheating girlfriend is the Primary Colours track that Magic! frontman Nasri Atweh likes best. He told iHeartRadio: "Gloria is my favorite song on the album because it's got all those elements that I love in a fictional song, which is the fun, the musical energy, the great arrangements, the harmonies."

    "It's about this two-timing girl named Gloria and a guy who's too weak to get away from her curves. It's really fun and we're going to shoot a video for it. It's kind of 'Sex all day!' If you listen to it more, you'll immediately kind of loosen up and it's got some wacky lyrics."
