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.
Lennevald approached the record company with five new songs, just one and a half weeks after the end of the tour. Lennevald's driving force in delivering songs of such quality and in a relatively short space of time impressed everyone concerned.
Lennevald created a new sound, assisted by producer Peter Björklund, in which his voice is the prime focus. First out is the single, “Girl Talk”, a kind of tragicomedy concerning 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 unleashed on radio on August 12th, 2004 getting high rotation on the most important radio stations in Sweden, the single, was released on September 15th 2004 and reached #20 on the Swedish Charts and earned a Gold Certification weeks after.
After the release of his single, Lennevald started to work as a model, appearing in several fashion magazines and participating on Fashion Shows in his homeland, Sweden.
Several rumours have been wondering amongst the fans about Lennevald's releasing another single. He said that he was recording an album in New York and some tracks were ready to go. Nothing has been confirmed.
In 2005 Lennevald and Universal Music parted ways, and there is no word about another record deal. Also in 2005, a song clip called "Let's Do It Again" leaked on the Internet and Lennevald appeared on shows in Sweden promoting his image and new songs.
