Basshunter on MSN Music Homepage!
MSN will feature "Ask Basshunter" all this week on the Music Homepage, inviting MSN users to post questions to Jonas! They are also featuring all four videos from the album!
"Basshunter, aka 23-year-old Swede Jonas Erik Altberg, has been one of the surprise packages of the year.
A minor star in Europe, particularly his native Scandinavia, following a string of eurodance hits back in 2006, he only broke through in the UK after one of them (Boten Anna) was given an English makeover and re-released as Now You're Gone at the end of 2007.
It stayed at number one for five weeks, before being knocked off the top spot by Duffy's huge hit, Mercy.
Follow-up single All I Ever Wanted narrowly missed repeating the trick, getting to number two. Like its predecessor, it was an English language remake of a previous Basshunter track.
Bashunter's new single I Miss You, released on December 15, is a modified cover of the 1999 Westlife album track and features vocals from Lauren Dyson. Oh, and like all his previous releases, it's got a video with lots of scantily-clad models in it. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
We're meeting Mr Altberg for a chat soon and we want questions from you to ask him. So if you're dying to know his thoughts on the global economic crisis or the objectification of women in popular culture, you've come to the right place.
Or you can just ask him his favourite colour, we're not bothered."
