Yes boys and girls, strange as it may seem, a song by a Canadian reggae band is currently sitting atop the American Hot 100. MAGIC! is the band, "Rude" is the song, and today the breezy summer hit has gotten a remix, courtesy of Kid Ink, Ty Dolla $ign and Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker (who, in case you didn't know, has a fair amount of hip-hop experience).
That power trio adds a bit of West Coast swagger to the faux-Jamaican track, coming out sounding a bit more tropical than four Canuck bros could muster (probably thanks to Dolla $ign's obsession with beach houses).
Why you gotta be so damn bad girl?
Why you gotta have so much ass girl?
Ay, I'ma let you lick the rapper
I like it when you tell me "faster, faster"
- Dolla $ign
