A. DANCE MONKEY. 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.” Combined with wearing a yellow suit when they performing on Dick Clark’s Rocking New Years Eve show.
The experience ended up inspiring “Dance Monkey.”
