"Hasta Mañana", originally titled "Who's Gonna Love You?", is the fourth track on Swedish pop group ABBA's album Waterloo.

Initially thinking "Waterloo" was too risky, their second choice of song was "Hasta Mañana", as they thought it was more in style with the previous Eurovision Song Contest winners. They decided on Waterloo, primarily because Waterloo had Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad sharing lead vocals, whereas Hasta Mañana had Agnetha as the sole lead vocalist, and the group believed that this would give the wrong impression of the group to the world.
