Nacida como Sannie Charlotte Carlson en Skælskør, Dinamarca el 11 de abril de 1970, pasó varios años de su infancia en África regresando después a su país natal.

En el 2005 Whigfield colaboró con los Benassi Bros en dos canciones del álbum "...Phobia" en las cuales aporto la letra y la voz en "Rocket In The Sky" y "Feel Alive", bajo el nombre de "Naan".

Además de trabajar con los Benassi Bros, también ha participado en proyectos al lado de Favretto con "Yes U R" y "People Of The Night", Malomodo "Come a little Closer" y en el último sencillo de Benny Benassi el cual ha sido un gran éxito a nivel mundial "Who's your daddy?".

  • Salto al estrellato

Saltó al estrellato cuando su single "Saturday Night" se convirtió en el gran hit del verano boreal de 1994, gracias a que fue tocado intensivamente en las discotecas del Mediterráneo y al hecho de que tenía un baile que muchos encontraron fácil de aprender. Whigfield se convirtió en la primera artista no británica en debutar en el nº 1 en la primera semana del ránking del Reino Unido. Su música tuvo también mucho éxito en Brasil, España, Canadá, Australia, Francia, en los países nórdicos y en América Latina durante el fenómeno eurodance de mediados de los 90.

Otros sencillos posteriores destacados son "Think of You", "Close To You", "Last Christmas", " No Tears to Cry", " Giving All My Love", "Baby Boy", "Gimme Gimme" y "Sexy Eyes".

En el otoño de 2007, publicó un nuevo disco, All In One, que contiene sus mayores éxitos vueltos a grabar para la ocasión, con nueva producción musical y nuevas voces. Además se incluyen dos temas inéditos, "Rainbow" y "Right In The Night", siendo esta última un cover de la canción de los 90 interpretada por Jam & Spoon. El primer single elegido fue la nueva versión de "Think Of You", y el segundo fue "Right In The Night".


Sannie Charlotte Carlson (born April 11, 1970, in Skælskør, Denmark) is best known as Whigfield and also Naan. She is a Danish singer best known for the song "Saturday Night," a hugely popular single during the summer of 1994.

Whigfield spent several years in Africa as a child before returning to her native country. Before singing Sannie worked as a very successful model and studied music. When she met the producer Larry Pignagnoli, who also produces Benny Benassi, Katla, In-Grid, Ally & Jo, Ann Lee, Spagna, J.K., Dhany and others, the artist "Whigfield" was born. The name "Whigfield" is a tribute to Sannie's piano teacher.

She rose to prominence when her single "Saturday Night" became the summer smash hit of 1993, thanks to extensive play in the clubs of the Mediterranean and the fact that it had a dance which many found easy to learn.[citation needed] She became the first ever non-UK or American artist to debut at No.1 in her first week in the UK Singles Chart. Her music was also very successful in Australia, Brazil, Venezuela, Canada, France, India, the Netherlands, the Nordic countries, The Philippines where it became a hugely popular and smash hit summer song of 1994 gaining a very decent cult status in recent years along with the songs of Ace of Base and Los Del Rios, and Spain during the 1995 Eurodance phenomenon.

Later singles include "Think of You", "Close To You", "Last Christmas", "Gimme Gimme" and "Sexy Eyes". "Gimme Gimme" and "Sexy Eyes" reached #14 and #6 in Australia, respectively, and they were the only two significant charting hits in that country

Like the group Milli Vanilli, Whigfield was accused of not singing her own songs. This was because she did all her live performances lip synching (miming to a backing track), and she has a high-pitched voice in the recorded tracks which is different from her speaking voice. "Saturday Night" was produced by Larry Pignagnoli and Davide Riva, two Italian producers known for a variety of Eurodance projects, who usually worked with vocalists such as Daniela Galli (better known as Dhany), Annerley Gordon (aka Ann Lee) and Sandy Chambers. Another Pignagnoli project, Ally & Jo, featured a similar voice to Whigfield's but different faces in the CD cover and led to the accusations. However, it has been demonstrated on numerous occasions that Whigfield does do her own vocals, whilst touring in Brazil with a live band and being requested to sing live by Neil Fox, a UK DJ.

In October 2007 Whigfield released "All In One", a greatest hits album with past hits being resung with newer, modern beats. The album includes updated versions of "Think Of You", "Gotta Getcha", "Sexy Eyes", "Givin All My Love", "No Tears To Cry", "Was A Time", "Close To You", "Out Of Sight", "Another Day", and of course her biggest hit "Saturday Night". The album also includes 2 brand new songs titled "Rainbow" and "Right in the Night", a cover version from Jam & Spoon. On December 18, she released her first single in 3 years, "Think of you", which contains mixes from Mathieu Bouthier & Muttonheads and Gabry Ponte. A second single Right In The Night was released in May 2008 which peaked at #4 on the Interactive Chart. A third singles has been released "Saturday Night (Klm Mixes)" in late 2008 which contains 20 new mixes.

However successful Whigfield became on the international marketplace, the only place where she has yet to achieve major commercial success, like many European artists, is the United States (Even though she placed both "Saturday Night" and "Another Day" on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1995, with "Night" peaking at #19 and "Day" coming in at #21, respectively). In the years 1994 - 1997 Whigfield sold more Records than Oasis and Blur combined, although in a 1998 interview she accepted that she was not a bigger influence on mainstream music than either band.

  • Recent works

Whigfield has since written and performed many dance songs for groups like Benny Benassi, changed her performance name to Naan, and is still involved in the industry.[3] In 2005, Sannie appeared on the Benassi Bros album 'Phobia' writing and singing on two songs, 'Feel Alive' and 'Rocket In The Sky'. Sannie choose to record these under the name Naan, and also used that name to record 'Come A Little Closer' with Malomodo, and 'Yes U R' and some vocals in 'People Of The Night' with European DJ 'Favretto'. Sannie also wrote the lyrics for 'It's Summertime' performed by Spanish singer Katla which was released October, 2005.

Sannie is still currently involved in writing, producing and recording. Most recently she wrote the lyrics for the hit 'Who's Your Daddy' performed by Benny Benassi. 'Feel Alive' was also released in Spring 2006 however the vocals on the single release are performed by Sandy. Also vocals were re-recorded by Dhany for the single release of 'Rocket In The Sky'. She also wrote "Put 'Em Up" for singer Edun, which has gone on to become a major hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart, where it peaked at number 3 in August 2007.

To the date, "Doo Whop" seems to be her last successful song worldwide. It was a hit in many countries like Mexico, Canada and Venezuela, where it was published on some dance music compilations.

The video for "Right In The Night" is currently in airplay and charting on Canada's BPM:TV dance music tv station. (May, 2009).
