Released: September 28, 2018
Cher is an undisputed queen in the music industry, which is why it’s no surprise that she continually dominates.
After appearing in Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and covering “Fernando” and “Super Trouper,” Cher decided to record her own cover album of ABBA’s top songs. Her lead single – “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” – along with the two songs from the film left fans waiting in anticipation creating the perfect intro to her album.
The rest of the release is like gold. Cher uses her signature auto-tune to bring new life to favorites. “Chiquituta,” which never got a proper recording in the first film, is a standout that isn’t one of the big pop numbers.
The one lull is “The Winner Takes It All,” which, while emotional, never seems to grasp audiences.
Final say: Quite the Dancing Queen. ★★★★☆
