Nico & Vinz just dropped the visually arresting music video for "Not for Nothing," the latest single off their Cornerstone EP, exclusively on Billboard today. 

"Not for Nothing" is a subdued, personal track for the duo, which may come as a pleasant surprise for listeners familiar with their infectious summer hit "Am I Wrong."

"'Not for Nothing' is a record that really just comes out of a space of being an artist in its purest form," Nico and Vinz say. "You see something socially or in your life and the way you express your feelings is through music. It's just raw emotion and feeling and that is what we tried to show in the video, just Nico, Vinz and our passion through the record." The track references "freedom fighters" and the final words of the slain Eric Garner: "When you see my hands up and I say 'I can't breathe'/That's not for nothing, oh no," Vinz sings over the plaintive track.
