ABBA’s Benny Anderson and Elton John have teamed up for a new mash-up video for TikTok, and it’s awesome.

The pop legends performed a live version of each of their signature songs before they were shuffled onto TikTok.

Benny played ABBA 1979 classic ‘Chiquitita’ on the piano, while Elton played his 1973 hit, “Bennie And The Jets.”

ABBA star Benny is at his piano playing the opening bars of “Chiquitita” before quickly cutting to Elton who is at his own piano playing “Bennie And The Jets.”

“I heard ‘Chiquitita’ was in again…with Elton John!” the caption on the official ABBA TikTok page reads.

The mashup became a trend on TikTok recently, after a user brought them together in a video a few weeks ago.

Watch the video below:

Elton John recently started the UK leg of his Farewell yellow brick road round in Norwich on June 15. He first announced the first UK dates for his final run of shows in 2018.

Meanwhile, ABBA is currently promoting their virtual concert residency, ABBA Travel. The purpose-built venue at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park features a digital recreation of the legendary band as they appeared in the early 80s, while a live band perform a setlist of their iconic hits.
