Frida's Solo "Fernando" Single

The original version of “Fernando” (which had the working titles of “Tango” and “Hernandez”) was written by Benny and Bjorn for Frida’s solo album “Frida Ensam” which was released in Sweden in 1975 where it spent six weeks at the top of the album charts selling 130,000 copies.

When Frida release “Fernando” as a single in Sweden it entered the charts in December 1975 and spent nine weeks at the top of the singles chart. This is probably why when the Abba version entered the charts the following year it peaked at number 2.
