Let’s Sing ABBA: When Karaoke Meets Disco
Players have been asking us for years to include more ABBA in Let’s Sing. We listened and made a special edition that will satisfy all your wishes — but we didn’t stop at the songs.
When you think about pop music, there are a lot of artists that come to mind. Some are one-hit-wonders, others have one or two successful albums. And then there are the artists and bands that shaped the genre into what it is today with their songs being seared into collective consciousness. One of those bands is, without a doubt, ABBA.
So, if you think about, it really only made sense for us to honor one of the most successful and influential pop bands of all time with their own special entry into the Let’s Sing series. Everyone knows at least some of their songs, probably even by heart without even realizing it. And we have also been asked for years to include more ABBA into our games. So by popular demand, here it is: Let’s Sing ABBA!
Picking the songs for this edition was easy and hard at the same time, simply because there are just so many hits to choose from! A few were of course absolute no-brainers. From the first moment it was completely unthinkable not to include the likes of “Mamma Mia,” “Dancing Queen,” “Waterloo,” or “Super Trouper” in the playlist. From there on out, it was more of a question of “What don’t we include?”
A testament to that is the fact that we broke our own rules, at least a little bit: Usually, the international version of a Let’s Sing game includes 30 songs. However, Let’s Sing ABBA includes 31 — because we wanted to add a song from their newest album Voyage, which they released in 2021. So our karaoke players get 30 classic hits that take you right back to the era of platform shoes, flared pants and disco balls and one new hit, “I Still Have Faith In You.”
But we knew that we couldn’t stop there. To let people experience Let’s Sing the ABBA way with more than just the songs, we overhauled the interface and also the avatars to look a little bit more like the band members. Play long enough and you will unlock iconic outfits that are sure to give your next performance an additional boost of confidence.
Other than that, Let’s Sing ABBA comes with single and multiplayer modes, leaving no excuses for people not to join in. I you want to get a head start and practice on your own? We’ve got you covered. Want to get into a singing competition for the ages with some friends? Done. You’re looking for a special challenge? Our mixtape mode is definitely for you — no two playlists in this dynamically generated mode are the same.
We got a glimpse of the fact that we had made the right choice with Let’s Sing ABBA during gamescom: Even more people than we could have possibly hoped for stopped by to step into our karaoke box and belt out some disco tunes, also cramming more people in there than we thought possible. Needless to say, all of them were leaving with big smiles on their faces once they were done. Mission accomplished on our end. Thank you for the music so far and we can’t wait to see some great performances on social media!
