Swedish band Abba has their debut compilation album, which set a record time of 1,000 weeks on the British singles chart.
Over 30 million copies of Abba Gold have been sold since its release in 1992, and in the UK with 5.61 million sales, it is the second most successful album of all time after Queen Greatest Hits.
The album, which features songs like Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia or Waterloo, has now spent 19 years and 12 weeks on the album 100 chart. BBC writes.
Abba Gold has held the number one spot for eight weeks over the years, and is currently the seventeenth best-selling album. The album is the band’s most successful album, ahead of Voulez-vous and Arrival, who also topped the British charts in the 1970s.
It seems that the popularity of the album has not abated, it has been in the top 100 best selling albums since July 2017.
According to the BBC, two more albums could soon reach the 1,000-week record: Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend hit 984 weeks ago and Queen’s Greatest Hits album 952 weeks ago in the UK’s top 100 charts.
