In an ABC News "Where Are They Now" feature on Ace of Base, former Mega Records executive Martin Dodd -- who worked with both the Swedish pop quartet and the now 33-year-old singer early in their careers -- claimed that Spears recorded her own version of the band's breakout single around 2007.
"They wanted to release it, but that was a difficult time for her," said Ace of Base founding member Ulf Ekberg, hinting at the troubled year for the star. "It was only in Denmark, never finished and didn't end up on her album. It was cool though. She took the choruses, took away the verses and wrote new ones about her mom. It was very strong."
