It has exploded on the charts internationally as well, peaking at #7 on the Spotify Global Viral Chart and #2 in the Top 10 Spotify Viral Chart in the United States, #2 in New Zealand, #3 in Canada, #6 in Australia, and #9 in the United Kingdom. Not to mention, it cracked the Top 200 on Spotify in the United States and emerged as #6 “Most Added on Top 40” at radio.

Right out of the gate, he also received plugs from Melodic Magazine, Alfitude, and Enigma Online. In the wake of the release of “Fine Apple,” he has attracted another 570,000 TikTok followers and 20,000 Instagram followers.

Get a kick of Lemon & Line from Nic D and Bryce Vine now.

Of the meaning behind “Fine Apple,” Nic D says, “I wrote this song for and about my wife. I tend to write songs about glorifying my wife because I like to uplift the women in my life. It was written in a moment after we had a conversation about me pursuing music full-time, and she fully hopped on board. I felt really supported by her, which resulted in a feel-good song. When you have people in your corner, it feels good and makes the music feel happier. I write a lot of songs about her, and there will be more because she deserves it. And I like my water with lemon and lime.”

On the video, he says “The song did really well on TikTok, so I did a lot of callbacks to videos I made on TikTok, since that’s where the song first went viral. For the people who made it happen for me, I wanted to make them feel like those bits and pieces were for them, because they were part of the whole process for me.”

“Fine Apple” might just be the sweetest fruit of the summer.



Nic D has quietly shaken up entertainment from multiple angles as an artist, podcaster, and all-around phenomenon. Since his introduction in 2018, his hybrid of hip-hop and pop has consistently captivated listeners. Among many favorite singles, “Mood” posted up over 1.4 million Spotify streams with “Quarantine Summer” also cracking the 1 million-mark. He consistently averages over 1.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Simultaneously, he entertains a faithful audience of 1 million TikTok followers as one-half of the The FRDi Show with co-host Cakes Mitchell. He has been dropping music and content at a prolific pace, culminating with his 2020 independent debut This Can’t Be It. He sunk his teeth into 2021 with the unshakable “Fine Apple.” Now, he’s plotting much more to come.


Distilling nimble wordplay, hyper-charged hooks, and intimate guitars into genre-less and timeless songcraft, Bryce Vine leaves his stamp on pop music and culture. Since emerging in 2013, the Los Angeles-based multi-platinum singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist has quietly built a devoted audience with EPs such as Lazy Fair (2014) and Night Circus (2016). However, he popped off on an international scale with the double-platinum smash “Drew Barrymore.” It paved the way for the platinum “La La Land” [feat. YG] and his first full-length in 2019, Carnival. And when the world shut down in 2020, Bryce also looked inward and released the contemplative EP Problems. Most recently, he unleashed brother sundance-assisted anthem “Text You Back,” two-track bundle Mixed Feelings, “Care At All,” plus a slew of other genre-spanning collaborations, including a reimagined pop version of #1 country smash “Just the Way” with Parlamee and Blanco Brown, “Congratulations” with indie-pop artist FITZ, and “Do Si Do” with Shaylen and KyleYouMadeThat. Along the way, he has attracted widespread acclaim from Bustle, Billboard, Teen Vogue, American Songwriter, VIBE, Flaunt and more, with TIME declaring “Bryce Vine is the epitome of low-key cool.” In addition to tallying over 1 billion total streams, he has delivered a series of unforgettable performances on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Wendy Williams, The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Live with Kelly and Ryan, Good Morning America, and more
