The two are following in the footsteps of the comedy duo Ylvis, whose 'What does the Fox say?' peaked at sixth place last year. 
 
A-ha, the legendary Norwegian synth pop band remain the only Norwegian band to score a Billboard Number One hit with 'Take on Me' in 1985. 
 
The duo, Nico Sereba and Vincent Dery, launched under the name 'Envy' in 2010, but renamed their act as Nico & Vinz after signing with Warner Brothers in the US in January. 
 
Their music draws on their respective Ivorian and Ghanaian backgrounds, with the two comparing their 'sound' to  Paul Simon's Graceland and The Police on their website.
