This pop vocal group, which was assembled in Stockholm, Sweden in late 1998, comprises Marie Serneholt (11 July 1983, Stockholm, Sweden), Sara Lumholdt (b. 25 October 1984, Stockholm, Sweden), Dhani Lennevald (b. John Dhani Lennevald, 24 July 1984, Stockholm, Sweden), and Amit Paul (b. 29 October 1983, Boden, Sweden). The quartet was initially promoted as an Abba tribute band, and enjoyed immediate success in their native Sweden when their cover version of Mamma Mia entered the charts at number 1 and stayed at the top for the next two months. The Abba Generation, comprising energetic but essentially soulless renditions of more Abba songs, also topped the Swedish charts and was successful throughout Europe. The quartet spent most of 2000 touring America as support to N Sync and Britney Spears, and were rewarded with platinum sales success. The follow-up album did not feature a single Abba track.
