Belgium

Following are all the Abba, Agnetha Fältskog, Frida and related charts for Belgium. Special thanks to Nick, Jos, Colin Hughes, Toby Petterson, Craig Halstead and Jürgen for this information. Charts dated the mid-1990's onwards are from the Ultratop 50. There were two charts in Belgium from 1970 - the BRT Charts (regarded as official), and the Humo Charts (which are regarded as official in some areas) - after 1981, there were three! The Belgian chart book, "Het Belgisch Hitboek" by Robert Collin seems to average out the aforementioned two charts. What I have done is split the information up for the singles - the BRT listings, and the Humo listings. For anything else, it is the BRT listings on these pages.

Key to Abbreviations:

Date: This is the date the single or album first appeared in the chart.
Title: The title of the single or album. With singles, if there are two titles listed on one line, that single was considered a double A side.
HP(1): The highest position the item reached in the charts, and if the item reached number 1, the weeks spent at that spot.
TI: This stands for "Times In" which is basically how many weeks the item spent on the charts.
