Following Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’s hugely successful opening weekend at the box office, the soundtrack is set to take the no. 1 spot in the album charts this weekend.

After Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again came out in cinemas last Friday (20 July), The Official Charts Company has revealed the soundtrack album is set to top the charts this Sunday.

The album, which contains ABBA songs ‘Dancing Queen’ and ‘My Love, My Life’, will overtake The Greatest Showman, which peaked at No. 1 for 21 weeks and has been in the top three for 30 weeks.

Meanwhile, the original Mamma Mia! soundtrack is on track to be at No. 5, meaning we could be seeing three musical soundtracks in the top five.

Since the soundtrack album’s release, ABBA sales have gone up by 57 per cent, with the band’s popular compilation album Gold set to appear at No. 7.
