Information

Nasri Tony Atweh ( born 10 January 1981) known mononymously as Nasri, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.[2] He currently resides in Los Angeles, California, United States. He is the lead vocalist and songwriter for the reggae fusion band, Magic!, a group consisting of fellow Toronto natives, Mark Pellizzer, Alex Tanas, and Ben Spivak. MAGIC!'s single "Rude" became a major international hit single. He is currently managed by Wassim "Sal" Slaiby.

Nasri is also a renowned songwriter and producer, one half of the songwriting and production duo the Messengers. He and Adam Messinger have produced a string of hits for well-known artists, including Justin Bieber, Shakira, Pitbull, Chris Brown, Halsey, and more. In 2012, he earned the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album for his production work on Chris Brown's F.A.M.E.. He also received a Latin Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album and the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album for his work on Shakira's El Dorado. His songs "As Long as You Love Me" by Justin Bieber and "Feel This Moment" by Pitbull both made the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

 

Nasri was born and raised in Toronto, a child of Christian Palestinian immigrants from Nazareth,[3][4] and began singing at the age of six. He studied at Senator O'Connor College School, and while attending, was part of the school choir as well as extra-curricular sports.

The songs received some airplay in Canada, and another song titled "Best Friend" was also heard on indie radio in his hometown in 2003. According to the promotional material attached to his single "Go", he was to release an album titled Invisible Walls sometime in 2003 or 2004, but that never materialized. In 2007, he released a song entitled "Click, Click, Click", that would ultimately be covered by the New Kids on the Block.
