Denniz introduced many changes to the song. Denniz was not fond of the rap vocals on the original demo, and these were subsequently replaced with short spoken word sections.
A new second verse was also added. Though vocals were recorded by all four members for this version, Jenny's vocals were eventually cut on the final release.
The final version of the song evolved into a dark fusion of dub - reggae with pop which became the band's trademark sound. Denniz would go on to co-produce all officially released versions of the song that were available at the time, notably a more uptempo version of the song, dubbed the "Madness Version".
This version features entirely different vocals and more spoken-word sections. Following its release in August , the song quickly climbed to number one on the Danish chart while "Wheel of Fortune" was still sitting at number two.
Keen to rush out an album for the Christmas market, Mega Records pressed the band for an album and it was hastily recorded, mixed, and released within a few weeks. In , the song was re-recorded by the band as a three-piece with new lyrics in a first-person perspective, but was never officially released. This re-recording was leaked online in June in a collaboration version of the song that features new Ace of Base vocals alongside Britney Spears 's vocals from her own demo version.
AllMusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine said that it is easy to see why the song was a hit: "the beat is relentless and the hooks are incessantly catchy". End of story. No contest. Since we got hold of the import several months ago, the word about this release has spread. Not every song that reaches 1 in the U. Can't imagine it would take more than one listen to be convinced. Alban with its reggae". Simple, sublime and subversive. The weirdest record since Boney M 's Rasputin.

In , Annie Zaleski from The A. Club wrote, "The song—which can be read as either a celebration of a woman who enjoys one-night stands, or a warning to her potential suitors—is a catchy marvel of simplicity.
A glacial synth hum and strolling reggae rhythm provide propulsion, while the occasional saxophone curlicue and mysterious whistle give it intrigue, as well as a hint of melancholy.
The sound of "All That She Wants" is disarmingly simple — high, clear, piping synths over a basic skank — but also quite perfect. It's a cooling sound, it makes the rest of pop sound busy and overheated. As the song so poetically puts it, "It's not a day for work — it's a day for catching time".
A music video directed by Swedish director Matt Broadley was produced in November  to promote the single. The video had a very low budget and was filmed in Copenhagen in one day with only two takes. He also told that MTV loved the video because it was so clean, so they pushed the song.
It depicts the band members performing in a cramped apartment, interlaced with shots of a woman getting ready to go out. She goes to a bar where she meets a man. They talk and then she takes him home to her. The video is recorded in her apartment and has a sepia tone. Though Jenny has no vocals in the song, she lip syncs the vocals during the chorus. The music video was uploaded to YouTube in October As of December , it has got more than 92 million views.
An Italian band Age of Bass covered the song in Its close resemblance to the original Ace of Base version and the original band's name caused Mega Records alongside Polygram to prompt the rendition's record label Discomagic Italy into pulling the release from commercial markets.
The rendition would later appear in a compilation release by Edel Records. The demo leaked onto the internet in January From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Dance-pop  reggae-pop .
