By Karoline Kaarbø Asskildt Posted: 11. Jul, 2014

‘Am I Wrong’ most popular on American radio, the Norwegian festival summer has started and there is a brand new Top Ten AND Nordic Playlist. It’s Music Norway’s Week In review!

Nico & Vinz is #1 on American radio!

This week, both Am I Wrong and Andreas Schuller produced track Wiggle holds strong at fourth and sixth place on Billboard Hot 100.

Wednesday night, it also became clear that Nico & Vinz takes the top position on Billboard Hot 100 Airplay. Which means that Am I Wrong is the most popular song on American radio!


The Norwegian festival summer has begun!

The summer is for obvious reasons (weather, holidays) high season when it comes to festivals. Here are some of the music festivals you can attend in Norway this week – and some of the Norwegian artists playing them!


‘Engel’ peaks on Top 10!

Admiral P and Nico D’s summerjam Engel (Angel) is Norway’s most streamed song! In addition, summer jam phenomenon Salsa Tequila by Anders Nilsen has gotten its debut on the top ten list. The video already has close to 1.5 million views on YouTube, and has hit the charts all over Europe.

Major label Universal Music Norway represents four out of the ten artists on both lists; Gabrielle, Broiler, Admiral P and Katastrofe.

Bjørn Rogstad, A&R Director and Head of Local at Universal claims that it’s all about embracing the new ways, and marketing and releasing your music according to the new channels and their consumers.
