In 1999 it's America's turn. Up & Down and We Like To Party! storm to first place in the Billboard dance charts. Their debut album "Greatest Hits!" reaches USA gold status and the group is nominated for MTV Best Breakthrough of the Year.
The Vengaboys received numerous awards including the TMF Award for Best Dance Act and receive a price for being Hollands' most successful export 'product' that year. (Yes, we beat the tulips, agricultural products, and cheese..)
And the hits kept coming; Shalala lala, Kiss (When the sun don't shine), Uncle John From Jamaica all reach top 5 in most countries. EVERY vengaboys single released, became a UK Top 40 hit.
Then, after releasing a ballad as their goodbye single, (Kim: "Hahaha! a Vengaboys ballad, what were we thinking?") the group called it quits for a while. Not a real crazy idea after selling 20 million singles and five million albums.
Missing the fun and the applause, the group got back together in 2007 and what a ride it has been since! #NeverEndingWorldTour
Blond bombshell Denice: "The Vengaboys story is a total adventure. It took us around the world in what seemed like a nonstop fun-fest. And we're loving our Never Ending Word Tour".
