The Reign of ‘Fancy’ Is Over

I mean, Iggy Azalea is probably not going anywhere, but still: After seven weeks atop the Billboard "100," "Fancy" has been knocked off its perch at No. 1. You might assume that we at Vulture are celebrating, but unfortunately, the song replacing it might be even worse. MAGIC!'s "Rude" is that song with the insanely catchy hook ("Why you gotta be so ruuuuuude?") and the implication that it wants to take part in your wedding. We are not feeling it. The Song of Summer situation remains bleak (at least until Becky G hits the charts).
