Ace of Base - Greatest Hits (#ad)
Ace of Base, the Swedish pop band of the 90s took the American music industry by shock when their single "The sign" from the album Happy Nation reached the No.1 spot in the Billboard Hot 100 singles.
Carrying the legacy of the legendary Swedish bands such as ABBA,Europe and Roxette.. Ace of Base made full use of the slow pop,reggae music of 90s introducing a very unique club beat in almost all their songs.
The resulting fusion of music drove the teens of 90s crazy, even forcing Arista records, Ace of Base's record label compelling them to release a worldwide Christmas mix in less than 45 days of notice in 1994.
"The sign" reached the No.1 spot in the U.S on the second week of January 1994 and stayed there for six weeks, but not consecutive weeks.
It sold more than 2 million copies world wide and was certified multi platinum in U.K, US,Canada, Australia and most European countries including Spain, Belgium,Germany and Netherlands.
But for some odd reason "The sign" never reached the top spot in Ace of Base's native country, Sweden.Even though "The sign" was their most popular song,it was not their best selling single either.
"All That She Wants" released February 1993 is their best selling single to date with more than 2.5 million copies sold world wide.The song reached the No.1 spot in almost a dozen countries where it was released.
But "All That She Wants" didn't make it to the top in their native Sweden nor USA, where it was beaten by Meatloaf.Ever since it's release in 1993 "All That She Wants" has been officially remixed more than a 100 times and many hundred times unofficially.
Apart from these two chart toppers, Ace of Base Greatest Hits has many other hit singles including "Lucky Love" and "Don't Turn Around " which topped the charts in Canada,Germany and Billboard US Top 40 Mainstream charts."Don't Turn Around " sold a million copies in Germany and United States alone.
If there was a band which had multiple No.1 US top ten hits and not win a single Grammy, it has to be Ace of Base.You can stream all their hit songs on amazon prime, apple music store,Spotify or download the same on iTunes music store and amazon music.
