John Fogerty Scores Number 1 Hit 50 Years Later
Congratulations to John Fogerty on hitting the number one spot on the Billboard Rock Digital Sales Chart for the 50-year-old Creedence Clearwater Revival song, “Have You Ever Seen the Rain.”
Additionally, the songs “Bad Moon Rising” and “Fortunate Son” also landed in the Rock Digital Song Sales Top Ten (reaching No. 9 and No. 10 respectively). Meanwhile, the band’s RIAA Diamond-certified compilation album Chronicle: The 20 Greatest Hits recently broke the Top 10 on iTunes’ Top Albums Chart.
Why did this happen? It could have something to do with Fogerty’s new found love of the Tik Tok app. HIs account has amassed over 1.4 million views.
“After more than 50 years, the legacy of Creedence Clearwater Revival continues to grow, as new generations of fans discover their rich and timeless catalog,” says Sig Sigworth, President of Craft Recordings. “The band’s success is reflected not only in this astounding No. 1 chart position and the recent RIAA certifications, but also in the surge of subscribers, monthly listeners, and continued sync requests.”
