Pop quiz: You have conquered all the territories on earth from the United States to Asia. You have provided millions of young fans around the world with one of the most successful debut pop albums ever.

What do you do?

Well, either you sit back and congratulate yourself, or you face the new challenge ahead and start working on the follow-up.

AQUA have chosen the latter, and the world is now about to embark on yet another fantastic AQUA journey with their second album Aquarius, led by the catchy first single "Cartoon Heroes".

Early preparations for the follow-up to AQUA's debut album Aquarium were already being made during 1997 and 1998. In this period the band travelled the globe in a seemingly never-ending promotion frenzy. In hotel rooms, onboard planes, in dressing rooms and simply whenever and wherever their tight schedule allowed them to, AQUA were working on new material. When their promotional duties finally came to an end - or at least calmed down a little - it was time to pay full attention to the next album.

In January 1999 the band tucked themselves away in a house on the coast of Sweden. Their own recording studio was brought in, and the production of Aquarius began. Now the band members are putting the final touch to the album after having relocated to another house, this time in the U.K.

It has been a while since this remarkable pop group came from what appeared to be nowhere and flew almost straight to the top position of the charts all over the world. However, AQUA's history so far is as exciting as a fairy tale.

Their international breakthrough single was "Barbie Girl", a wonderful, happy-go-lucky pop nugget - yet at the same time showing AQUA's unique talent for writing songs with a tongue-in-cheek twist. Had anybody dared to mistake AQUA for a one-hit wonder at the time when "Barbie Girl" paved the way for the new Scandinavian superstars, AQUA soon proved the sceptics wrong with singles such as "Turn Back Time", "Doctor Jones", "My Oh My" and "Lollipop (Candyman)".

Back home in their native Denmark (which applies to three-quarters of AQUA, Lene was born in Norway) the group had already proved their massive potential by scoring three consecutive no. 1 hits - of which "Barbie Girl" was the third. With "Roses Are Red" (AQUA's debut single), its successor "My Oh My" and the debut album Aquarium going through the roof, everybody in and around AQUA was confident that a band called AQUA was here to stay.

More than 14 million records later, it seems that they were right. Not that anybody had expected it - least of all Claus, René, Lene and Søren. Who can honestly sit down during the making of their debut album and claim that they are perfectly certain that it is going to be a worldwide hit? AQUA certainly couldn't. But after 20 months of massive, worldwide performance and promotion, and a lot of records and over 10 million singles sold, they had to contemplate their situation.

Luckily, AQUA are not like anybody else. Claus Norreen, René Dif, Søren Rasted and Lene Nystrøm are still the same down-to-earth, people that first got together for one reason - a love of music.

And that is exactly why they are taking on the world once again with their unique pop tunes - because that is what they love to do.
