"3 Nights" is the debut single by American singer and rapper Dominic Fike. It was released as a single from his Don't Forget About Me, Demos EP through Columbia Records on October 19, 2018, and reached number 3 in Australia, the top 10 in New Zealand and the top 20 in the UK in 2019. It also charted in Ireland and Germany.

Critical reception[edit]

In a profile on Fike, The New Yorker said the parent EP of the song is "nostalgic for the early-two-thousands beach-bonfire style of [Jack] Johnson, with some of the watered-down reggae of 311 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers." It further said "3 Nights" could "generously be classified as high-quality retail music", calling it "easy to listen to" and comparing it to "Rude" by Canadian reggae fusion band Magic![1]

Music video[edit]

A music video directed by Nathan Rickard was released on April 4, 2019, and features Fike with friends in his hometown of Naples, Florida.[2] Soon after, Kevin Abstract shared an alternate video he directed for the song, which was described as Fike messing around.[3]
