In 2007 the band charted at Sverigetoppen for 24 weeks with the single "Varje liten droppe regn". The same year, bandmember Andreas Wistrand recorded the Christmas single "Du är det enda jag vill ha", written by Thomas G:son, Henrik Sethsson and Ulf Georgsson, together with Swedish singer Sandra Oxenryd.
