^The guy who runs Mediatraffic took a break, I expect that when he does the update Dancing Queen will be well over 450,000 worldwide :).

It's amazing! :D :D

Two consecutive weeks inside the Canadian top ten in sales.

Just 250k sold in the US and almost 500k worldwide.

Approaching Gold status in Canada and the UK (in the long term)

All that sounds really good to me!

We need a DQ2 reissue to make this record reach Gold in the US.

A rerelease would be a very smart move, and personally, I wouldn’t really want a second abba album but I would be fine with several additional tracks and remixes and I’d call it “Dancing Queen: The Winner Takes it All“ :D.

What I’d really like is to get a Cher Christmas album next season!

Actually that would be a quite good name! :D

I absolutely agree with you!

I would also like Cher to release a reissue because I want DQ to get more Gold plaques around Europe, Canada and the US. Then, she should promote like crazy the announced Christmas record. She needs a hit for the holidays 8-)

Dancing Queen has strangely dropped out of the top 100 UK albums chart, despite being #74 in the midweek chart, not sure what happened there.

It is #44 on the sales chart. I guess the non-existent streams are what made the difference.
