Fleetwood Mac Rumours album returns to US Top 10 after 42 years

Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 smash, “Rumours”, has returned to the US Top 10 after 42 years following the buzz generated by a viral TikTok video set to the album’s hit single, “Dreams.”

According to Billboard, the project jumped from No. 13-7 on the Billboard 200 after selling 33,000 equivalent album units in the week ending October 15.

“Rumours” spent 31 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 on the chart in 1977-78 -- a record number of weeks atop the list for an album by a duo or group.

The album went on to sell more than 40 million copies worldwide – including 20 million in the US – to become one of the best-selling records in music history.

The recent TikTok video in question has “Dreams” soundtracking a man in a hoodie (Nathan Apodaca) seemingly being pulled on a skateboard, as he drinks from a bottle of Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry juice and sings along with Stevie Nicks’ lead vocal.

The video became so popular, it moved Nicks and drummer Mick Fleetwood to create their own tribute clips.

The singer will premiere her new live music film, “Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold The Concert”, in cinemas around the world on October 21 and October 25; directed and produced by Joe Thomas, the project captures the Fleetwood Mac singer on a 2016-2017 tour in support of her 2014 collection, “24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault.”
