Magic! is a Canadian reggae-pop band based in California. They are fronted by producer Nasri Atweh, who is best known for his pop resume having co-penned hits for the likes of Justin Bieber ("Never Say Never
") Chris Brown ("Next 2 You
") and Pitbull "Feel This Moment
"). He recalled to Billboard
magazine in June 2014, "Four or five years ago, I want[ed] to do this Police thing. So we did this song 'Mama Didn't Raise No Fool.'"
"For years, everybody would say, 'That song is crazy. You should do this style,'" Atweh added: "I'd go, 'I'll never find the right musicians.' But, I met [Magic! guitarist Mark Pelli] and the rest is history."
