Drawing heavy influences from artists such as The Police, Stevie Wonder, and Bob Marley, MAGIC! was formed in 2012 by Grammy Award-winning songwriter/producer Nasri (lead vocals), Mark Pelli (guitar), Ben Spivak (bass), and Alex Tanas (drums). MAGIC!’s meteoric rise came shortly after the release of their debut single, “Rude” in 2013. Co-written and produced by Grammy Award-winner Adam Messinger, “Rude” held the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for six weeks, while dominating charts globally, hitting #1 in 41 countries. Recently, the track surpassed one billion streams on Spotify. MAGIC! has released three studio albums, toured with Maroon 5 and headlined shows worldwide. They have received two JUNO Awards and nominations for American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards and more. Following the release of their third studio album, Expectations in 2018 and five years of continuous touring, the members of MAGIC! decided to take a break and focus on solo projects. Nasri and longtime collaborator Adam Messinger have since written and produced for some of music’s biggest names including Justin Bieber, Shakira, Pitbull, Lana Del Ray, Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown, and more.
During a band dinner in the summer of 2021, MAGIC! (now Nasri, Spivak and Pelli) came to a realization; that the world was in need of some happy music. Beginning in September of 2022, the band began rolling out their first new music in four years. “Ain’t Got Nothin’ Figured Out”, a cheery and upbeat homage to the beauty of not having everything figured out, has garnered over 11 million views on Tik Tok. “Inner Love Energy”, a rock anthem about finding love within yourself, has gained support from over 40 editorial playlists. There is much more music to come as MAGIC! gears up to release their fourth studio album.
