The new #1 from Nico & Vinz - Am I Wrong is doing great worldwide.

Actually it is not the only version - It was originally released under their previous name - Envy nearly 9 months ago
Confusing or what?

Here's the cover of mine:

For anyone interested in comparing the 2 here it is:



Same song, same band, they changed their name because another band was already called Envy. Envy obviously pronounced N V = Nico & Vinz.

I think Euro Music is actually aware they're the same artist... I'm just trying to get my head around why a thread was made to essentially highlight a 9 month old name change.

I think they changed their name because Envy isn't very googleable + there's already a band called Envy.

Nico & Vinz isn't exactly the best name either but what can y'do

Nico & Vinz is a Norwegian singing/songwriting duo composed of Nico Sereba and Vincent Dery. They formed in 2009 as Envy and are based in Oslo.[1] They changed their name to to Nico & Vinz in January 2014 after the international success of "Am I Wrong".

Am I Wrong was originally released in 2013 (show how far behind the UK is when releasing European music) when the band was called Envy. It peaked at #2 in Norway, Denmark & Sweden also at #5 in Finland.
I got my copy just before last Christmas.
It was even a US hit long before release in the UK.

This is the followup (In Your Arms) that has already been a big hit in Scandinavia. (Shows how far behind UK are).

Ah, cheers, that's exactly what I asked for. It's all much clearer now, very relevant to my post.
