Event Description
Nico & Vinz

Hailing from Oslo, Norway, international music sensations Nico & Vinz are currently best known for their hit single “Am I Wrong,” which made its American radio debut in April of 2014 and was the most added record for the US Mainstream Top 40 format with 90 adds, a rarity in first-week airplay for a new artist. The song peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the highest-charting song by a Norwegian artist since a-ha's "Take On Me" in 1985, and has already obtained RIAA double-Platinum certification, having sold over 2.2 million copies in the US alone. Additionally, the “Am I Wrong” official music video has well over 321-million views on YouTube, and the lyric video version has nearly 25-million views.  


Nico & Vinz, comprised of friends Nico Sereba and Vincent Dery, made their debut in 2010 under the name Envy and quickly won over fans and critics alike for not only their music, but also their electric live performances. After initial success across Scandinavia, they gained more international attention with a performance of “Am I Wrong,” at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in 2013. They signed with Warner Bros. Records the following year and officially changed their name to Nico & Vinz to avoid confusion with other artists named similar to Envy. 


The duo released their debut album, Black Star Elephant, in September 2014. They additionally penned the uplifting song, “Find A Way,” for the 2014 film The Good Lie, starring Reese Witherspoon, and paired up with David Guetta on the track “Lift Me Up” from his latest album.


In 2015, they released the EP Cornerstone, which featured their latest hit single “That’s How You Know,” featuring Bebe Rexha and Kid Ink. The track peaked at number two in both Norway and Australia and at number 35 with the US Mainstream Top 40. The song has nearly 10-million views on YouTube and over 81-million plays on Spotify. Their next studio album is slated for a later 2016 release.


The concert is sponsored by the Iowa State University
Student Union Board (SUB), a student-run programming
board that organizes cultural, recreational, educational,
social, and entertainment activities and events throughout
the academic year.
