Biography[Edit]Edit

Aqua singer Lene Nystrøm consists of g. (born October 2, 1973 in Tønsberg, Norway), singer René Dif (born October 17, 1967 in Copenhagen), Claus Norréen (born 5 June1970) and Søren Rasted (born 13 June 1969). The Group was founded in 1994, but scored well initially especially in home country Denmark. The international breakthrough came in 1997 with the song Barbie girl, that in many countries, including Netherlands (Top 40) was a number 1hit. In the Mega Top 100 it came to number 2. Later, there were some hits, such as Doctor Jones, the ballad Turn back time and My oh My.

Aqua fell on by the childish voice Nystrøm's next to the exaggerated male voice of Dif. in response to the success of Aqua followed in the second half of the 1990s, several other (Danish) groups, which made use of this concept, including Toy Box and Cartoons, but these were not as successful as Aqua. In 2001 made Aqua known to part ways.

In 2002 was an indictment of Aqua by toy manufacturer Mattel by a US Court rejected. Mattel had argued that Aqua with the song Barbie Girl the copyright on Barbie had violated.

In 2007, Aqua back together to give a series of concerts, in 2009 followed a new single: Back to the 80 's. Later the Group was in the top 5 in Denmark with their latest hitMamma said. They have adopted a completely different sound, dark electropop.
