Magnus Carlsson was born in Borås and grew up in Fristad. He attended comprehensive upper secondary school for 2 years with a focus on musical training, and four further years at the Faculty of Arts in Gothenburg University, where he studied to be a music and song/voice teacher.
At the end of 2002, Carlsson decided to leave Barbados, and on 13 December 2002, Carlsson became an official member of the pop group Alcazar. On 24 January 2003 he performed his last concert with Barbados.
In 2007 Magnus performed in the third heat of Melodifestivalen 2007 in Örnsköldsvik with "Live Forever", an eighties-inspired electropop dance song. The entry came in 5th place and was knocked out of the contest but still became the 6th most frequently played song on Swedish radio in 2007. The song was released as a single on 5 March 2007, and reached the status of gold certificate.
