Nico & Vinz - Am I Wrong

Nico & Vinz US campaign off to a head start with radio stations adding the track at rapid pace.

This week, US Warner Bros. Records radio promotion staff’s official Twitter account reported that Nico & Vinz’ “Am I Wrong” is the #1 most added song at American Top 40 radio.

Says the duo’s manager Amanuel Kidane to national daily VG on ‘Am I Wrong’s strong performance on US radio in its initial week:

– We don’t have exact numbers yet, but as we speak we’ve probably reached 71 adds on various radio channels which is nothing short of insane!

The strong performance of ‘Am I Wrong’ on US radio bodes well for the duo’s US launch campaign admits Kidane: – We have a new album coming up and loads of plans – this is definitely a great start for us.

As we reported earlier this week, ‘Am I Wrong’ is currently performing strongly in Central Europe, topping the Austrian iTunes charts and remaining Top 10 in Germany and Switzerland.

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.

Nico & Vinz are naturally represented on Music Norway’s Spotify Waffle Mix playlist, along with lots of more Norwegian music. Listen in here.
