Fleetwood Mac Is Back to the Billboard Top10 Thanks to TikTok

When Fleetwood Mac’s popular classic LP “Rumours” was last in the Top 10 of the Billboard album chart was in February 1978, disco was king, Jimmy Carter was president, and the famous soap opera “Dallas” was still more than a month away from its premiere. Thanks to a TikTok video, though, “Rumours” has climbed back to the chart for the first time in 42 years. It lands at No. 7, and it has 33,000 sales in the United States, which includes over 30 million streams.

Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac on Billboard Charts Once Again

After the tight race for the top of this week’s album chart, “Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon,” which is a posthumous release by the rapper Pop Smoke, returned for its second time at No.1 with the equivalent of 67,000 sales. “Shoot for the Stars” has already become a steady hit after its release in the summer, and it has squeezed ahead of Metro Boomin’s “Savage Mode II” and 21 Savage. The latter fell to No.2 in its second week out with 66,000.

Fleetwood Mac’s Big Return

Fleetwood Mac made an impressive return late last month, when a potato worker in Idaho, Nathan Apodaca, filmed himself languidly singing along to “Dreams” while skateboarding down a road and drinking from a bottle of Cran-Raspberry juice. The clip caught on in the way that joyful, random TikTok videos do. That said, it’s been viewed more than 60 million times, and it began spurring downloads and streams for “Dreams.” Before long, Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood responded with their videos.

Nathan Apodaca It’s mind-blowing how powerful TikTok has become. People there share videos of their favorite trends, singers, and songs, without even realizing how great of an impact they have on the world’s most well-known music chart. The Internet is a powerful thing, isn’t it?
