feat La Bouche, Jenny Berggren from Ace of base and Snap!
LA BOUCHE- In 1994 Electronic Dance Music (EDM) took world by storm and ushered in a new sound for an entire new generation. With over 12 Million records sold worldwide, Billboard and MTV music award nominations and an “Echo” (German Grammy award) and with Mega hits such as “Be My Lover” “Fallin’ In Love” and the infectious “Sweet Dreams” La Bouche remains one of the most popular bands touring today.
It was followed by "Be My Lover" in 1995, which peaked at number one in Germany and Sweden, while also reaching the Top 10 in fourteen European countries. It also peaked at number 27 in 1995 and number 25 in 1996 in the UK Singles Chart when re-issued in that year. "Be my lover" went to number 1 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1995 and climbed to number 6 on the Hot 100 in early 1996. It was then re-released in the UK and reached a new peak of number 25. It went on to win the ASCAP award for the "Most Played Song in America", and sold 6 million copies worldwide. La Bouche went on to become one of the biggest Eurodance groups of the '90s, with a string of hits worldwide.
Now 23 years later front man Lane McCray Jr. brings La Bouche back with an amazing new rendition of “Sweet Dreams” Enter Hungarian Chanteuse Sophie Cairo. This coupling of these two golden voices is magic. The two have been touring the globe for the past two years all the while listening to fans who want more new music from the duo so they decided to take action and began working on new material.
“It´s amazing how popular 90’s music is today in fact it has become a genre unto itself. More and more people kept approaching me asking for new music so I finally decided to open a new chapter for La Bouche and McCray Records” says Lane.
“I had been wanting to do a new version of “Sweet Dreams” for many years because it was one of my favorite 90s songs. La Bouche were not just another EDM project, their records had several wonderful pop songs so they certainly always stood out. I just knew that Sweet Dreams still had great potential for a new audience so we turned it into the perfect pop song” “Sweet Dreams” will be released worldwide September 22, 2017 on McCray Records and in Cooperation with WunderLand Records.
Jenny Berggren- lead singer of the internationally renowned swedish pop group ace of base “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 charts before a single publicity photo had ever been snapped of ace of base.
The album the sign/happy nation skyrocketed to the top of worldwide music charts in the early nineties, selling over 21 million copies and making it the all-time most selling debut album ever—a title unsurpassed to this day.
The album is one of the best-selling debut albums of all time, and was certified nine times platinum in the united states. it was the first debut album to produce three number 1 singles on the billboard mainstream top 40 chart: "all that she wants", "the sign" and "don't turn around". It even raked in more revenue for sweden that year than the country’s signature auto company, volvo.
Jenny’s performances of the abba songs ‘fernando,’ ‘gimme! gimme! gimme!,’ ‘money, money, money,’ ‘i’m a marionette,’ ‘voulez vous’ and ‘summer night city’ at this concert series turned many heads, as the abba classics showed off jenny’s wide vocal range far more than most ace of base songs had to that point.
