ABBA’s relaunch yesterday had a slow start, but it looks like a success now.
Their first album in 20 years, called “Voyage,” is ranked at numbers 2 and 3 on amazon’s best sellers. The album won’t be released until November 5th.
The two singles released yesterday are in the iTunes top 20. “Don’t Shut Me Down” is number 10, and “I Still Have Faith in You” is 17. They’re not great songs, but they’re good openers meant to last until the album is released.
No numbers are in yet for the singles. But their respective YouTube videos are getting plenty of action. “Faith” has 5.2 million views so far and “Shut” has 2.3 million views. Neither song, however, has appeared on the Spotify Daily singles chart yet, where Kanye West is ruling the roost with “Donda” tracks. And Drake is coming.
