Nico & Vinz

Nico & Vinz’ ‘Am I Wrong’ continues its tour-de-force on US radio.

Each week, Billboard presents ‘Bubbling Under’, a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success. Topping last Friday’s ‘Bubbling Under’ list is Nico & Vinz whose single ‘Am I Wrong’ is currently the #1 Most Added record at Top 40 radio in the US.

Writes Billboard.com: ‘After scoring success with its single “Am I Wrong” in Europe, Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz (formerly known as Envy) is breaking through stateside. The melodic cut bullets at No. 37 on the Adult Pop Songs chart and is building at pop radio, while its official video and lyric clip have drawn a combined 11 million YouTube views.’

Vents Magazine also runs a profile on the Billboard-climbing duo: ‘Norwegian import Nico & Vinz kicked off April with the #1 Most Added record at Top 40 radio this week. With 90 out-of-the-box adds at the pop radio format, the duo’s hit single “Am I Wrong” is now showing the impact of their European success with early support from the biggest stations in the United States including Z100 (New York), Sirius/XM Hits-1, B96 (Chicago), KMVQ (San Francisco), KHKS (Dallas), Y100 (Miami), Q100 (Atlanta) and many others. Another testament to the single’s immediate appeal is the chain-wide add across Cumulus Radio’s Top 40 network, which is a rarity in first-week airplay for a new artist. The hit showed early signs of success at the Hot AC format where it debuted on the Adult Airplay Chart just after ten days of airplay – with spins at key Hot AC stations translating into Top 3 local Shazam results.
