BMG Buys Fleetwood Mac Rights After 1970s Song Is TikTok Hit
Bertelsmann SE’s BMG snapped up rights to most of Fleetwood Mac’s music after the band’s hit song “Dreams” went viral on social media.
BMG acquired drummer Mick Fleetwood’s royalty interests in more than 300 recordings including “Landslide” and “Go Your Own Way,” according to a statement Thursday. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
“Dreams” shot back into the charts last year after a video of a man skateboarding along a highway while drinking raspberry juice and lip-syncing to the 1977 soft rock song became a social media sensation. In about eight weeks, “Dreams” generated 2.8 billion views on TikTok, was streamed 182 million times and helped sell 86,000 Fleetwood Mac albums in the U.S., BMG said.
