This achievement also makes history as it is the first time a musical act from Norway has scored a U.K. No.1 single in the past 28 years, with the last being A-Ha's 'The Sun Always Shines On TV.'
"Wow! Thanks to all our British fans for making Am I Wrong the Number 1 single!" the pair told the Official Charts Company when hearing the good news. "Growing up in Oslo, we always dreamed of being at the top of the UK chart so for this now to be true is completely surreal. We are extremely grateful to you for making that happen and can't wait to come and play it for you guys live very soon."
'Am I Wrong' made it to the top of the charts after spending five weeks at the lower end of the Top 100 based on online streams, but the track's official release caused it to sensationally climb to the very top, eclipsing any competition.
