Dhani Lennevald

Summary
John Dhani Lennevald (born 24 July 1984 in Stockholm) is a Swedish songwriter, record producer, and formerly a Pop/R&B dancer and singer. He was a member of the Swedish pop band A*Teens from 1998 to 2004, and briefly pursued a solo recording career after the band dissolved. In 1998, at the age of 14, Lennevald signed a record deal with Stockholm Records (part of Universal Music Group) along with his then band mates, Sara, Marie, and Amit. Together they performed as the A-Teens. In 1999, they released their first single, a cover of the legendary band ABBA, Mamma Mia. The single topped the charts in Sweden for 8 consecutive weeks and was successful in other countries. By 2000, the A-Teens' first album, The ABBA Generation had sold 4 million copies and they became one of the most successful Swedish bands around the world. After 6 years together and more than 9 million albums sold, the A-Teens parted ways after their Greatest Hits album and their final tour together in Sweden. After the A-Teens ended in 2004, Lennevald returned to the studio to write and record new songs. "Girl Talk" is the introduction to Lennevald's solo career. Lennevald approached the record company with five new songs, just one and a half weeks after the end of the tour. Lennevald created a new sound, assisted by producer Peter Björklund, in which his voice is the prime focus. His first release was the single, "Girl Talk", a kind of tragicomedy about the inability of men to really understand what their girlfriends are trying to say to them. The video for "Girl Talk", directed by Mikeadelica, was filmed in a sunny Stockholm day, during the middle of August. Also involved in the song and the video were Denmark’s biggest rap artists, Nik & Jay. "Girl Talk" was released on radio on August 12, 2004 getting high rotation on the most important radio stations in Sweden. The single was released on September 15, 2004 and reached #20 on the Swedish Charts and earned a Gold Certification.
