ABBA is on TikTok! The Swedish group featuring Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad have joined the popular video-sharing social media website. Their entrance to TikTok comes after users created the #DancingQueenChallenge.
Of course, their first video featured a rendition of their popular song “Dancing Queen.” It was a piano version and only showed the keys of the piano, so it was unclear who was performing the song. At the time of posting, they have shared three videos with the public.

The second video teased the launch of a new experience called “ABBAVoyage.” The group has been on hiatus for 39 years, so this is certainly a very exciting announcement! Even the head of music operations at TikTok, Paul Houricanin, was very excited about the group joining the app.
Paul said, “We are so excited to welcome Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid to TikTok, bringing their phenomenal music to fans both new and old around the world. With one of the most recognisable music catalogues ever created, their unique craft of songwriting truly transcends generations and has inspired music lovers for decades. Our community have already shown us with their own creations that this is the music they’ve been waiting for and we’re excited to see how ABBA can inspire a new generation of fans, sparking yet another wave of music creativity with the hits that have defined pop for so long.”
