Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' Hits Number 1 On The Charts Thanks To Viral TikTok

Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' Hits Number 1 On The Charts Thanks To Viral TikTok

In an incredible show of how a short and simple video can make an impact, Fleetwood Mac are back on top of the charts without having released new music in nearly two decades.

Their iconic song 'Dreams' was featured in a TikTok video of a bloke on a skateboard drinking some cranberry juice.

There wasn't much else to it, but people absolutely lapped it up and it has caused a huge surge in people listening to Fleetwood Mac on streaming services.

Unbelievably, 43 years after releasing 'Dreams' it's now Number One on the iTunes songs chart and their Greatest Hits album was No. 2 on the albums chart.

'Dreams' has been streamed a whopping 8.47 million times in the US in the last week alone, which beats the previous high of 3.83 million in September. The song returned to the UK charts last week and was sitting at Number 85.

The band's legendary Rumours album reentered the US Top 40 for the first time since 2013 and was sitting at Number 27, while in the UK it was at Number 22.

It's partially thanks to Nathan Apodaca, who was the man who filmed himself listening and lip syncing to the track on his way home while skateboarding.

Viral Fleetwood Mac Skateboarder Given $10,000 By Strangers On The Internet

There was something so serene and calming about the clip and it certainly struck a chord with people all over the world. The original video gathered so much attention that Fleetwood Mac drummer and band leader, Mick Fleetwood, joined TikTok just to recreate the scene.

Nathan has become the man of the moment and he was recently gifted a literal truckload of Ocean Spray's cranberry juice.

The company also thought it would be nice if the bloke had a truck to ride around in.

In a video uploaded to Nathan's Instagram, you can see him come out of his RV that hasn't had running water in some time, and greeted with a beautiful new truck that is packed to the brim with juice.

That's not the only thing that has been given since his meteoric rise to online fame. Nathan was shocked when generous strangers pledged more than $10,000 to his bank account the first week after his video went viral on social media.

He says the money raised will help him buy a new RV, because his current one isn't able to run on its own.

The money, which has been received through PayPal, Cash App and Venmo, will help him find somewhere to cook food, clean, and - well - you can imagine what else.
