Here’s something that’s perhaps unexpected: MAGIC!, the Canadian reggae group with the current No. 1 song in America in “Rude,” just received a remix at the hands of Kid Ink, Ty Dolla $ign, and Travis Barker.

“Rude,” a song about a guy seeking his girlfriend’s parents’ approval to marry her that sounds like it could be a Police tribute, didn’t seem primed for a hip-hop remix, but the trio have managed to put their own spin on it.

Kid Ink, Ty $ign, and Travis Barker’s rendition has a harder-hitting feel, as you can imagine. Barker gave the beat and drums a clapping makeover, while Ink and Ty take the song’s PG rating to an almost R with raunchier lyrics.

“Why you gotta be so damn bad, girl?” they ask. “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.'”

DJ E-Man and Ikon are credited as the remix’s producers.
