Swedish pop group Ace of Base was formed in Göteborg, Sweden in 1990.

The band’s original lineup consisted of Ulf Ekberg (Buddha), and siblings Jonas Berggren (Joker), Linn Berggren and Jenny Berggren; the two Berggren sisters left in 2007 and 2009 respectively, and were replaced with Clara Hagman and Julia Williamson.

Ace Of Base broke through internationally in 1993 with the hit ‘All That She Wants’ and one year later with ‘The Sign’ worldwide. Their album ‘Happy Nation’ (released as ‘The Sign’ in the USA) went on to sell over 20 million copies.

Their second album, “The Bridge” released in 1995, was well received with the hit single ‘Beautiful Life’ breaking away from their reggae-pop sound into a more pop-dance sound. It seemed clear that with music tastes rapidly changing, the hype about the band died down, much to the relief of blonde singer Linn who decided to hand over power to her sister Jenny for their third album. “Flowers”, also known as “Cruel Summer” in America. It was released in 1998 and was not as popular as their first two albums.

Their fourth album, “Da Capo”, was released in 2002. Whilst well received by fans, Da Capo received little publicity from the new record company Universal after Mega Records ceased to exist in 2001.

“All That She Wants” is the title of a song recorded by Swedish pop group Ace of Base. The song was produced by Denniz Pop. In early 1993, the song reached the top of the charts in many countries, including Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom and Australia. The single was certified platinum in the United States, where it peaked at number 2. It is one of the highest-selling number 2 songs of all time in the States[citation needed]: it stayed in the top three songs on Billboard Hot 100 list for three months, but never reached the number-one position. As of May 2009, the song was the 71st best-selling single of all time in Germany. It is unclear whether “All That She Wants” is another baby literally or figuratively.
