Norwegian Duo Nico & Vinz Tops US Billboard

The Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz's pop smash "Am I Wrong," notches its first US airplay chart No#1 on Adult Pop Songs, marking the track’s first domination on a Billboard airplay chart. The song now ranks 4th on Billboard Hot 100.

The song “Am I Wrong” that jumped to the top of the charts in Norway, Denmark, Finland and Sweden in 2013 is about a universal theme – to follow your own heart. The music video, directed by Kavar Singh, is already gaining ground stateside with more than 35 million views on YouTube. The video was shot in Botswana, and the duo wanted to “make a video that really projects the positivity, joy, and good energy in Africa, not always just the negative stuff.”

Coming from a small country that welcomes immigrants from all over the world has influenced Nico & Vinz. Their music have mixed and varied influences - from pop to reggae, West African dance to hip hop, rock to soul—which creates engaging music featuring soul-stirring messages with predictions of high hopes for the future. “We are Norwegian and African,” Vinz says, “It is important for us to inspire. We sing about things we’ve been going through and about finding ourselves. To us it’s important to have a message, and the goal for us is to inspire people to find happiness.”
