In November 1993, Swedish band Ace of Base officially make it big in America as their debut album ‘The Sign’ tops the US album charts. The album – a meld of reggae and Euro techno – spends six months in the top three and eventually sells 21 million copies worldwide. To date, it’s the second best-selling album from a Swedish act, surpassed only by the ‘ABBA Gold’ hits collection.
