This would eventually culminate in Mamma Mia!, a smash hit musical written around 24 of ABBA’s biggest hits. Much like The Beatles headed for the music of their youth for comfort once they all went solo, Benny Andersson found solace in early Swedish folk music when ABBA blew apart.

This most unique pop ensemble, consisting of two married couples -- Agnetha Fältskog with Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson with Anni-Frid Lyngstad -- may not have produced any music together during their three decades apart, but they’ve hardly been out of commission. Rising to fame in the late 1970's and early 1980's, ABBA remains one of the most successful music groups ever, falling behind only the Beatles for the title of best-selling music artists of all time. Agnetha Fältskog went solo before dropping out of the music industry. Whether you're a fan of the Swedish pop group or their amazing songs, featured in the musical "Mama Mia," have you ever wondered- what does ABBA look like now?

As she released albums in English and Swedish, she also became a member of the environmental organization Det Naturliga Steget, or The Natural Step. Lyngstad got an even earlier start than Fältskog on recording a hit solo album, recording what would become Something’s Going On with Phil Collins behind the boards.
