SWEDEN – ABBA has joined TikTok, and what better way to celebrate than with two short films on its gleaming new TikTok account. The first is a pair of hands playing “Dancing Queen” on the piano, while the second has a cryptic statement concerning an “ABBA Voyage.”
ABBA’s music has long been a hit among TikTok users, with the group’s songs routinely rising on the social media platform and inspiring a slew of video-cum-memes. To the delight of fans all around the world, the Swedish supergroup has finally signed up for its own personal channel.
The first video published by the Swedish pop group is well-known. The funky piano chords of 1976’s groundbreaking song, Dancing Queen, which topped the charts in the UK and 15 other countries, are unmistakable.
But it’s the second video that has many TikTok users baffled. A message appears on the video, which reads: “Thank you for your patience; the adventure is about to begin. Björn, Anni-Frid, Agnetha, Björn, Björn, Björn, Björn, Björn, Björn,” with the hashtag ABBAVoyage appears at the end of the post, which appears to hint to a forthcoming announcement that the band will be made on September 2 through YouTube (18:45 CEST).
For the time being, no one knows what the cryptic comment implies, although it might be a reference to the band’s upcoming new music, which includes five new songs due to be released in 2022.
While this is the first time ABBA has featured on TikTok, it isn’t the first time the band has teased a prospective new collaboration on a social media site.
TikTok is following in the footsteps of Twitter, which was the first to generate excitement about the band’s new music last week.
The ABBAVoyage Twitter account was created in February, but it just started posting content recently, including a series of photos of London billboards with the slogan ‘Join Us.’
Who knows what new pop anthems the supergroup has in store for us, but if it does get formally announced by the band, it looks like this will be a very public release, especially given TikTok’s social reach, which recently became the first non-Facebook mobile app to reach a mind-blowing three billion global downloads.
