NICO & VINZ - Black Star Elephant

n April 2013 they released "Am I Wrong" under the name Envy. In January 2014, the duo changed their name from Envy to Nico & Vinz, in coordination with their signing to Warner Bros. Records in the United States to avoid being confused with other artists with a similar name.[5] With international success of the single, the duo changed the credits of the single to the new adopted name. The song has peaked to number 2 on the Norwegian Singles Chart, the song has also peaked to number 2 on the Danish Singles Chart and number 2 on the Swedish Singles Chart.[4] It was followed up with another release "In Your Arms" which also charted in Norway, Denmark and Sweden.[4]

The music video for "Am I Wrong" was directed and edited by Kavar Singh. The video for "Am I Wrong" was filmed in Botswana and at the Victoria Falls between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was put together in a deliberate effort to present a positive side of Africa when the image of the continent is too often mired in negative news stories.[6] The music video was released via YouTube on June 20, 2013, and has been gaining much attention with over eighty million views.[7] The group played many different major Norwegian television-shows and kept saying they would aim even higher and try to break through into American audiences.

In early 2014, Nico & Vinz received the European Border Breakers Award (EBBA) at Eurosonic Festival, performed at the Spellemann Awards, completed a Scandinavian tour, and launched “Am I Wrong” worldwide.[8] When “Am I Wrong” made its American radio debut in April 2014, it was the #1 most added record at the Top 40/mainstream format with 90 adds, a rarity in first-week airplay for a new artist. As one of the most "Shazamed" songs worldwide, “Am I Wrong” sits at #1 on Shazam’s Top 100 Worldwide and has peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.[9] It is currently #3 on SoundHound's hottest chart. “Am I Wrong” continues to skyrocket up both streaming and download charts
