Fleetwood Mac's Rumours climbs on three Billboard charts this week

Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ Rises As It Remains An American Favorite

Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is already one of the most successful and beloved albums in U.S. history. If it were to disappear tomorrow, its place in the history books is safe…but Americans aren’t done with the pop-rock set yet. In fact, they’re increasing their consumption of the project, which is hardly fading from popularity, even after decades in the market.

Rumours climbs on three Billboard charts this week. At the same time, it finds its way back to another list, reaching a new high point in the process.

On the Billboard 200, the company’s namesake all-encompassing ranking of the most-consumed albums in the U.S., Rumours jumps from No. 43 to No. 36, returning to the top 40 region once again. The title is, impressively, still climbing, even as it nears 600 weeks on the tally.

In the past tracking period, Rumours moved another 18,445 equivalent units in America, according to Luminate. That’s up a little under 4% from the week prior.

At the same time, Rumours is also lifting on two of Billboard’s rock-only tallies, though its improvement on those lists isn’t quite as notable. On the Top Rock & Alternative Albums chart, Fleetwood Mac’s masterpiece pushes two slots, from No. 9 to No. 7. On the Top Rock Albums roster, it steps up just one space, from No. 7 to No. 6.

Rumours is also back on Billboard’s Top Streaming Albums chart this week. The set returns for only the fifth stint on the ranking of the most-streamed full-lengths in the country. As it reappears, the title hits a new peak of No. 46. That’s not just a new best showing for the album, but also the band.

Fleetwood Mac’s blockbuster full-length only declines on one major Billboard chart. The set falls slightly on the Top Album Sales ranking, slipping from No. 19 to No. 24. Interestingly, while it slides back in terms of position, the project is up more than 3% in sales. Rumours sold 3,521 copies in the past tracking week.
