The most Shazamed song of all time, “Dance Monkey” rises to #5 this week on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, making “Dance Monkey” the first top five Hot 100 hit solely written by a woman in over eight years. In Australia, “Dance Monkey” holds the all-time record for the most weeks spent at #1 on the ARIA singles chart, while in the UK “Dance Monkey” has made Tones And I the longest running #1 of all time by a female artist on the Official Singles Chart.
Having recently performed on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Voice, Tones And I is slated to make a pair of stateside TV performances in the coming weeks, performing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on February 20th followed by The Today Show on February 24th.
Originally from Australia’s Mornington Peninsula, Tones And I traveled to Byron Bay in early 2018 to take a chance at busking. On the first day she had crowds spilling onto the street. Tones quit her retail job and decided to make Byron her new home where she lived out of her van for a year, honing her songwriting and busking every weekend.
Today, “Dance Monkey” has been certified 8x platinum by the ARIA with Tones and I taking home four major wins at this year’s ARIA Awards including: “Breakthrough Artist,” “Best Female Artist,” “Best Pop Release,” and “Best Independent Release.”
Having recently been announced for the Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and Osheaga, Tones And I recently kicked off her first-ever North American tour.
