The A*Teens was a pop music group from Stockholm, Sweden, formed by Niklas Berg in 1998 as an ABBA tribute called ABBA Teens and later renamed to A*Teens. They were composed of Marie Serneholt, Amit Sebastian Paul, Dhani Lennevald and Sara Lumholdt. The band's debut album became a success around the world and in 2001 it was reported that the band had sold 6 million albums worldwide. A popular misconception in the United States, at least in the group's early days, was that they were the children of the ABBA members. The band disbanded in 2006.
After six years together, the band announced they would take a break in 2004 after the release of their Greatest Hits album. Each song from that album became a Top 20 hit in at least one country around the world. The split of the band was officially announced on 15 April 2006 and the band members have all started to pursue solo careers.
