Released in March of 1974, ABBA’s second studio album, Waterloo, arrived just a month before their triumph at Eurovision and set the Swedish quartet on a path to global stardom. Having just settled into their new group name (they previously went by their first names) and the success of their debut album, the pop titans seized the opportunity to compete again in Eurovision in the hopes of international recognition. The bargain paid off better than they could have hoped. Rather than falling victim to a sophomore slump, the band continued to rise in popularity.
