Pop Chart Prediction: ABBA First Album in 39 Years Won’t Sell More than 80K Copies, Finish at Number 2 This Week


Not many people took a chance on them.

ABBA’s first album since 1982, “Voyage,” is more or less a bust. predicts “Voyage” will sell no more than 80,000 copies. It will finish its debut week at number 2, second to Summer Walker’s album, “Still Over It.”

Walker, a jazz and R&B sensation, will sell 100,000 copies more than ABBA. She’s shooting for 185,000 streaming equivalent copies.

ABBA’s comeback so far hasn’t been a great success. The album is terrible, and the singles from it have not been hits. Their London hologram show isn’t a big ticket seller either.

Stay tuned for Friday sales finals.
