- Nico & Vinz Releases New Song “Intrigued”
- Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz has released a first song "Intrigued" in almost two years since "Not For Nothing". The music video, directed by Moni Vargas, was premiered on June 22. The song is elegantly weaving together pop, hip-hop, rock, and traditional African styles.
About the song, the duo said;
“‘Intrigued’ is a record that we are really excited to release. We’re passionate about the sound and the meaning behind it. We believe it will give fans a look at another side of Nico & Vinz that they may have not been exposed to yet.”
Also they added about the video;
“We wanted to shoot a video that represented the raw emotion and reality of the song. It’s a very real glimpse into the personal emotions and feelings that we both had as well as our experiences writing the record. Everything-from the actresses to the furniture and the artwork that we pulled directly from our houses to accompany the video-gives people a glimpse into the men behind the record.”
Nico & Vinz is best known for the international success of 2013's "Am I Wrong", which sold over 3 million CDs in the world. The song reached number one in Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the top ten in Australia and the United States.
