Voyage by ABBA is set to have a strong week in the United Kingdom, where it is expected to debut at No. 1.
The Swedish pop legend’s comeback album outsells the rest of the UK Top 40 combined at the midweek stage of the chart cycle.
The OCC estimates that Voyage’s 118,000 chart sales over the weekend should see it eclipse Ed Sheeran’s = (Equals) (with 139,000 combined units) for the largest first-week sales of 2021, and maybe post a first-week tally not seen in four years.
According to the charts compiler, Voyage is already the fastest-selling physical release and has the biggest first-week pure sales (physical and digital) of the year to date. If the album stays on track, it will be ABBA’s 10th No. 1 in the United Kingdom and their first studio album to top the Official UK Albums Chart since 1981’s The Visitors, their final album before disbanding.
The voyage includes the UK Top 10 hit “Don’t Shut Me Down” as well as previously published songs “I Calm Have Faith In You” and “Just a Notion.”
ABBA has a special place in the hearts of the British people. ABBA Gold, released in 1992, has spent 1,018 weeks on the Official UK Albums Chart, making it one of the country’s best-selling albums of all time.
Fans will have a when digital avatars of Benny, Björn, Agnetha, and Frida perform at a purpose-built arena in London next year for the virtual ABBA Voyage residency once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the foursome perform iconic classics and tunes from Voyage.
Meanwhile, Sheeran’s latest Asylum album falls, while Kid A Mnesia, a special anniversary re-issue of former chart-toppers Kid A and Amnesiac, land. James Arthur is on his way to his fourth Top 10 with It’ll All Make Sense At The End, which debuted at No. 4 on the midweek chart, and Summer Walker is chasing her career-high with Still Over It.
