A TikTok video of a guy singing to the tune of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’ while riding is skateboard has amassed over 17 million views.
If you thought TikTok was only a bunch of kids playing around, think again. TikTok’s latest viral video features a 40-something man riding a skateboard while drinking Ocean Spray out of the bottle and singing to the tune of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams.’ And it counts over 17 million views, only a few days after going live.
And what is even more impressive is how the video led to a 1977 chart-topper seeing a near 90% increase in US streams (almost 3 million streams) and a 374% increase in digital download sales. And all this happened within three days of the video being posted on TikTok.
Spotify also reported that streams were up 127% on its platform with a 242% first-time listeners of the song. Apple reported a 221% spike in streams on Apple Music, as well as a 1,137% increase in Shazams for the song. It is safe to conclude that TikTok led to many young people to tune in to the sound of Fleetwood Mac for the first time.
