The A*Teens was a pop music group from Stockholm, Sweden, formed by Niklas Berg in 1998 as an ABBA tribute called ABBA Teens and later renamed to A*Teens. They were composed of Marie Serneholt, Amit Paul, Dhani Lennevald and Sara Lumholdt. The band's debut album became a success around the world and in 2001 it was reported that the band had sold 6 million albums worldwide.

S Club 7

S Club, formerly known as S Club 7, was a pop group created by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller. The group—consisting of Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt, and Rachel Stevens—rose to fame by starring in their own CBBC television series, Miami 7, in 1999. Over the four years they were together, S Club 7 had four UK number-one singles, one UK number-one album and had a string of number-one singles throughout Europe. They recorded a total of four studio albums and released eleven singles. Their first album, S Club, had a strong 1990s pop sound, similar to many artists of their time. However, through the course of their career, their musical approach changed to a more dance and R&B sound which is seen mostly in their final album, Seeing Double.

The concept and brand of the group was created by Simon Fuller, who was also their manager through 19 Entertainment; they were signed to Polydor Records. Their television series went on to last four series, seeing the group travel across the United States and eventually ending up in Barcelona, Spain. It became popular in 100 different countries where the show was watched by over 90 million viewers.

As well as the popularity of their television series, S Club 7 won two BRIT Awards—in 2000 for British breakthrough act and in 2002, for best British single. In 2001, the group earned the Record of the Year award. The group's success soon changed, however, when Paul Cattermole announced he was to leave in the band, in 2002. Their penultimate single reached number-five in the UK charts, and their final studio album failed to make the top ten.

Best: The Greatest Hits of S Club 7 is a greatest hits compilation album released from S Club. Released on 2 June 2003, it includes all 13 singles from the band, arranged chronologically, plus a bonus track, "Everybody Get Pumped". A DVD was produced to coincide with the release and contained all 13 music videos, as well as bonus, rare unreleased interviews with the band on the release of each of their previous albums. Fans were rather disappointed with the Greatest Hits, as it included a track from their second album "7" called "Bring The House Down" as a bonus track, after rumours of three new tracks, one including a song named "Rain", came to light.

Although sales were down 40% to 150,000 copies, it was enough to bring Spears' total to just above the 1 million mark. After the release of "Toxic" the album sales increased once again. The album has sold 3 million copies in the US according to Nielsen SoundScan but it is listed at 2× Platinum according to the RIAA. When it debuted at number-one, Spears broke her own record again by becoming the first female artist in SoundScan history to have her first four studio albums debut at number-one

'N Sync (often stylized *NSYNC) were a Grammy-nominated musical group. The group's launch to fame was financed by the boy band mogul Lou Pearlman. Since 1995, 'N Sync has sold over 56 million records worldwide.
Formed in Orlando, Florida in 1995, the group consisted of Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick. The name is derived from the last letter of the members names: Justi-N, Chri-S, Joe-Y, Lanste-N (though originally the 'N' came from an original member named Jason before he was replaced by Lance), J-C. After heavily publicized legal battles with their former manager Lou Pearlman and former record label Sony BMG, the group's 2000 album No Strings Attached sold 1.1 million copies in one day and 2.4 millon copies in one week, giving it the highest first week album sales ever in US and #5 worldwide, and their 2001 album, Celebrity, holds the record for the second-highest first full week of sales. In addition to a host of Grammy nominations, 'N Sync has performed at the Academy Awards, the World Series, the Super Bowl and the Olympics, and sang or recorded duets with the likes of Aerosmith, Mary J Blige, Britney Spears, Nelly, Michael Jackson, The Jackson Five, Stevie Wonder, Celine Dion, and Gloria Estefan. The group also appeared as themselves on The Simpsons, in an episode entitled "New Kids on the Blecch", which aired on February 25, 2001.
While 'N Sync announced a "temporary hiatus" in spring 2002, the band has not recorded new material since. The group's official website shut down in summer of 2006, and in 2007, Lance Bass confirmed that the group has "definitely broken up."
