It all started with this tweet by @bottledfleet of Alcorn State University's Golden Girls Dance Team doing a routine to Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams."
As of me writing this, the tweet has been viewed nearly 7 MILLION times, has been retweeted over 143,000 times, has over 147,000 comments, and has been liked over 338,000 times.
But it gets better! According to Billboard magazine, interest in "Dreams" from that tweet has caused the song to reenter the Hot Rock Songs charts at Number 14 for the chart dated April 7th. The tweet also helped the song see a 36% surge in download sales, and it got received 1.9 million on-demand streams. As for the album Rumours, from which the song hails, it is sitting at number 13 on the Top Rock Albums chart.
This very album topped the Billboard 200 for 31 weeks 41 years ago, making it the longest reign for an album by a group. It still holds that record today.
Amazing what a tweet can do, huh? Which prompted this tweet...
