Nico & Vinz continue their tour-de-force of the US: this week their ‘Am I Wrong’ single reached Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10.

‘Am I Wrong’ continues its upward trajectory on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. This week a milestone was reached as the duo entered Top 10 with ‘Am I Wrong’ reaching No#8 on the charts, making Nico & Vinz the third Norwegian act ever to reach the coveted upper echelon of the charts, following in the footsteps of a-ha and Ylvis.

The track is currently No#3 on the Billboard Digital Songs – the week’s top-downloaded songs across all genres, ranked by sales data as compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

Nico & Vinz is also performing strongly on the US Top 10 iTunes US charts – ‘Am I Wrong’ is currently No#3 on the download sales list. Over the last two weeks, the track has remained stable at No”2/3.

Only two Norwegian acts have surpassed Nico & Vinz performance on the Billboard Hot 100: 80s pop icons a-ha is the only Norwegian act to ever reach No#1 with their 1985 hit ‘Take On Me’. Last autumn Ylvis peaked at No#6 with their viral phenomenon ‘The Fox’.

Nico & Vinz – the duo formerly known as Envy, have enjoyed great success in Scandinavia over the last year, topping charts in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Earlier in 2014, the two have also been bestowed with a Boarder Breaker Award, celebrating the best new pop acts in Europe which have achieved cross-border chart success, in addition to signing a worldwide deal with Warner. Earlier this year, the duo relocated to LA.
