One Hit Wonders of the ’80s: 1983 – Frida

“I Know There’s Something Going On” by Frida

Although this was Frida Lyngstad’s only solo hit, she had scored some other hits when she was with a little group called ABBA.

In 1982 ABBA was on an unofficial break, only for it to become a permanent break. During this “break”, Frida recorded her first solo album called Something’s Going On, which was produced by Phil Collins. “I Know There’s Something Going On” was the lead single from the album, and Phil Collins played drums and sang backup on the track. The song became a worldwide smash hit. In the U.S., it peaked at #13 on March 26, 1983.

Frida’s next album was the experimental Shine, which was released in 1984. Very rarely does “experimental” and “smashing success” appear together. And this is no exception.

Frida gradually recorded less and less, and has not had another hit. But, she had a great career with ABBA, and had great success with her one hit, “I Know There’s Something Going On”:
