"ABBA Gold" will go down in history.
The flagship album "ABBA Gold" with the top hits of ABBA will go down in history, as it is the first album that remains 1,000 weeks in the British charts.

The album "ABBA Gold" this week is at No. 17, almost two decades after its release. In fact, he climbed six places, as last week he was in 23rd place.

According to the BBC, this means that the album has been on the charts for 19 years and 12 weeks, since it has not been left out since its release in September 1992.

To date, 5.61 million copies of "ABBA Gold" have been sold in the United Kingdom and it is the second highest selling album of all time in the country after "Greatest Hits" by Queen.

ABBA Gold's total sales have exceeded 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the highest-selling albums of all time.

"It's not bad for four elderly Swedes," ABBA's Benny Andersson told the BBC as soon as the news broke.

In May, Björn Ulvaeus said fans could expect new music from Swedish pop legends this year. However, he clarified that there will be no film for the band in the near future, despite the success of the biographical films about Queen and Elton John.
