Nico & Vinz — 'Am I Wrong' Singers … Yes, We're Black AND We're Norwegian | TMZ
One question “Am I Wrong?”
why is that funny?
They seem really down to earth, their not to big headed about their fame
Lol what fame?
I like their song but the’ll fade after this
Because they’re not American so they’re probably nice Black people.
+Lets Mash It Up! They still have fame. That song made them noticeable
+Greg K No, Most people just like the song but dont even know who the singer is. Just like what happened to that song Somebody That I Used To Know, The song was known but the singer wasnt.
WTF! As long as they were born in Norway they are 100% Norwegian. I am sure you would not ask a white person that question.
+Aprime They are of the same ethnicity being African.
I thought Sam Smith was black…
Yes is a white guy who can sing with soul yes not everyday you see that.
+Chad M shutup
Actually classy black singers. Other rappers take note
Rappers and singers aren’t the same -___-
Comparing 2 great singers to rappers is like comparing apples to potatoes… Singers have actual musical talent where as rappers just… well… yea all about the beat. lol
You do realize this comment is almost a year old?
+Kyle Smith lol and.
UGH! TMZ ARE SO EMBARRASSING!!! DX
i actually didnt think they were white…that song actually sounds like a carribean, jamacian sound.
I think he meant that a lot of people thought they were white because they’re Norwegian
the song sounds more like african music… not carribean etc.
the song definitly sound african at least a black song when i heard the song i was sure it was from a african singer dont know what the journalist meant –‘
I would of thought they would sound more Norwegian ish lol they sound American to me
That guys haircut is crooked
Am i wrong for thinking that we could be something for real?
It’s funny cause Norway is done with that song, it was at the top of the charts last year
I feel bad for Black and Asian people. They get asked the dumbest questions.
Because racist morons think that race has anything to do with intelligence or penis size or skill. It’s 2014 and the world is still filled with racist morons.
+alonzo9772 thanks bruh , dudes fucking come up and guessed if i speak english or not xD
I am Creole (Black for the ignorant) and Korean. And I get questions that deserve just a stupid look.
Oh my God… Americans need to travel more…lol
Why are Americans OBSESSED with race? They’ve asked them about black people in Norway in each interview I’ve seen! Come on, of course we have people from all over the world in Norway. And they’ve grown up in Norway, so they are Norwegian just like me with my blue eyes. Right now I’m studying and living with one girl with genes from Sri Lanka and one girl with genes from Africa, and they are NORWEGIAN.
Hva er galt med deg?
You dont really have people from all over the world.
I thought they were Americans because their accents, music types and how they acts. They acts, sounds like etc. like African American. But have they ever singed at Norwegian? I have never heard them sing at Norwegian, but I think it would be cool if they did. 🙂
Am I wrong or does Vinz look a lot like that French-African actor from Jurassic World, Omar Sy?
Love em’ both!

I and the (intelligent) population of Americans who watched this just collectively facepalmed. “So, you’re Norwegian, but where are you REALLY from?”
+Nappy Bunny (ItsTheNappyBunny) Thank you! I`m norwegian and from a city. People from cities are mixed. You would think americans knew this :p
I know. Not all of us are this stupid, but the Americans that behave like this have NO excuse. They are usually the ones who will proclaim with pride how their ancestors were German, Irish, Italian, etc., but somehow think that they are the only people who can be true Americans and conveniently forget that all of us Americans are descendants of immigrants when they are confronted by a person of a different ethnicity or skin color who was born here just like they were. And of course, they apply that absurd logic to other countries like Norway without even thinking. It´s sad.
