Jenny Berggren, lead singer of the internationally renowned Swedish pop group Ace of Base and now solo artist, looked into the face of success rather suddenly at the age of 19.

The group’s first two released songs All That She Wants and Wheel Of Fortune coupled in the number one and number two spots on the danish sale charts before a single publicity photo had ever been snapped of Ace of Base.

The band’s album The Sign skyrocketed to the top of worldwide music charts in the early nineties, now selling over 25 million copies and making it the all-time most selling debut album ever—a title unsurpassed to this day. The album’s success even raked in more revenue for Sweden that year than the country’s signature auto company, Volvo.

“Meeting the top of the world in music is very challenging in a good way, but to the way to that success i always kept in mind that i will meet the same people on the way down,” Jenny says.

The group, originally comprising of siblings Jenny, Linn, and Jonas Berggren and later their friend Ulf Ekberg, started their music from the basement of the Berggrens’ house in their hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden.

The shock of Ace of Base’s success was one that delighted their listeners worldwide, but also one that caught the young swedes off guard. the rise to fame was swift and especially had an impact on Jenny. In April 1994, she was awakened in her parents’ home with a knife held to her throat by an intruder that wanted to meet the rest of the band.

The event was enough to stop Jenny and her family still that night, and yet there was no pause button for the sensation that Ace of Base had become.

Only one month after the attack, Jenny and her fellow band members hit number one on the billboard charts both with their single, The Sign, and with their album of the same title. the prestigious chart positions held for six consecutive weeks.

The band continued making music, and Jenny found a strength within her christian faith to press forward. she wrote a song about the attack on the group’s following album, The Bridge, which was released a mere 18 months after the intruder woke Jenny in her parents home that fateful night.

Jenny and her fellow band members gave hundreds of performances through their concerts and promotions from 1992-2009, their largest audience being 55,000 in Tel Aviv.

Overall, Ace of Base released four albums plus a greatest hits record in less than a decade. Jenny, along with her fellow band members, stand out as four of very few Swedish artists to have earned two American music awards and two billboard awards. Ace of Base sold more than 40 million copies with their four albums.

It was because of their record-breaking debut success that Jenny and her fellow band members have become a well-known musical icon of the nineties, though their albums went on into the early 2000s.
