Voulez-Vous (pronounced ; French for "Do you want?") is the sixth studio album by the Swedish group ABBA, released in 1979. It features a number of hits such as "Chiquitita", "Does Your Mother Know" and "I Have a Dream" and showed the group embrace disco music, which was at its peak at the time. The album peaked at N. in a number of countries and was one of the top five-selling albums in the UK for that year.

Voulez-Vous was first released on CD in 1984. 3 CD re-issues, bonus tracks.

This album has an average beat per minute of 116 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 84/148 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. Tracklist Voulez-Vous. BPM Profile Voulez-Vous. Album starts at 148BPM, ends at 135BPM (-13), with tempos within the -BPM range. Try refreshing the page if dots are missing). Recent albums by ABBA.

That it took nearly a year to record Voulez-Vous is an indicator of the creative and personal constraints in which the four members of ABBA found themselves at the end of the '70s. Their sixth album coincided with the marital split between Agnetha Fältskog and Björn Ulvaeus and the massively shifting currents in popular music, with disco, which had been on the wane, suddenly undergoing a renaissance thanks to the 1977 movie Saturday Night Fever. Thus, about half of Voulez-Vous shows the heavy influence of the Bee Gees from their megahit disco era.
