Fleetwood Mac's Iconic Rumours Album Is Back In The Top 10 Thanks To Dreams Skater
| Last updated
It's been quite the ride for skater/TikToker Nathan Apodaca and music legends Fleetwood Mac.
The iconic American/British band have again been propelled into the spotlight after the now-famous video of Apodaca skateboarding while vibing out to Fleetwood's 1977 hit 'Dreams' recently went viral on TikTok.
The hugely popular video trend, which has even seen Mick Fleetwood himself mimic Nathan's super chill clip, has not only seen 'Dreams' hit the number one spot on the charts 43 years after its release, but has now also seen the single's album, Rumours, return to the top 10 in the Billboard 200 charts.
The last time the album held a Top 10 position on the charts was way back in February 18th, 1978.
Thanks to the renewed interest in the serene tune, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, Rumours has earned 33,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending October 15th - up 15 per cent.
'Dreams' is Fleetwood Mac's only single to hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 songs list out of their chart hits, which include top 10 singles 'Go Your Own Way', 'Don't Stop' and 'You Make Loving Fun'.
Billboard discussed the song and album's resurgence recently, explaining: "TikTok has driven catalogue hits back to various Billboard charts before... but never a song this old and a Hot 100 rebound this high."
"It shows that TikTok's tried-and-true power to catapult songs to mainstream recognition is only getting stronger."
Meanwhile, Nathan - who goes by the handle doggface208 on the social media platform - has subsequently found fame of his own, with the Cran-Rasberry drinking TikTok star recently being gifted a cherry red truck full of Cranberry juice by the beverage's company, Ocean Spray.
He's even unveiled his very own Halloween costume just in time for the spooky season, which includes an oversized white t-shirt, black shorts, white tube socks, a fake moustache, a temporary feather tattoo and a crewneck jumper that reads the slogan "steady vibin."
