Biography

Stockholm, Sweden (1998 – 2004)

A*Teens (or A-Teens) was a pop music group from Stockholm, Sweden, formed in 1998 as ABBA Teens and later renamed to A*Teens. The four Swedish-born members of this group sold over 8 million albums and 1.5 million singles worldwide. The band’s members are:

* Marie Serneholt, born Monday July 11, 1983 in Stockholm.
* Amit Paul, born Saturday October 29, 1983 in Boden.
* Dhani Lennevald, born Tuesday July 24, 1984 in Stockholm.
* Sara Lumholdt, born Thursday October 25, 1984 in Solna.

In 1998, Marie, Amit, John, and Sara were musically united as the ABBA Teens. However, upon the request of Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson of the legendary Swedish group ABBA, the group’s name was changed to the A*Teens to avoid confusion. This choice allowed the band more freedom in creating their own style of music and not be solely based around ABBA.

In 1999, the A*Teens released their first album ABBA Generation consisting purely of ABBA covers reinterpreted with a modern pop and techno flair to appeal to a new generation of young pop fans. The debut album hit #1 on Swedish charts and enjoyed international success, selling 110,00 copies in Chile and peaking at #71 on the United States’ Billboard 200. During that year, the A-Teens toured some with *NSYNC and Britney Spears. After they released their second album, Teen Spirit, a year later, they toured in the United States with Aaron Carter.
