Fleetwood Mac are back in the spotlight after a TikTok featuring one of their songs went viral last month.

The album Rumours was released over 43 years ago but it quickly moved up to No. 11 on the ARIA Albums Chart this week, jumping six spots from the previous week.

The song Dreams had an even more impressive week after a man long boarding down the street used it in his TikTok video.

The single has moved up to No. 4 - a 10-spot jump from last week.

Nathan Apodaca was the man behind the viral TikTok - dubbed The Dreams Challenge - and quickly became an internet sensation.

It currently has over 60 million views.

Apodaca appeared on the Today show and said he was honoured after watching the TikTok.
