Dancing Queen is a song by pop group ABBA, written by Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Stig Anderson as the lead single for ABBA's 1976 album Arrival. Benny and Björn were also responsible for producing the song. Dancing Queen was first released as a single in Sweden on August 15 1976, later followed by the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe a few days later. It was a worldwide hit, topping the charts in Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany and Rhodesia.

The song was accompanied by a music video, filmed in 1976 in Alexandra's discotheque, Stockholm, Sweden. The music video features all four members of ABBA singing and performing to dancing club patrons. As with almost all of ABBA's music videos, it was directed by the Swedish film director Lasse Hallström.

To celebrate this, the video was remastered in 4K resolution, the first ABBA music video to be published in this quality.
