Now Playing on Mix 94.9: Tones & I, “Dance Monkey”
Australian singer/songwriter Tones & I's hit song "Dance Monkey" is now playing on Mix 94.9.
The song -- released May 10 -- has been making appearances on charts all over the world. According to Billboard, it's hit No. 1 in 20 territories, including a record-breaking 19-week run in Australia beating Ed Sheeran's 15-week run with "Shape of You." The song is also on track for an 11th week at No. 1 in the U.K. and currently sits at No. 13 on Billboard's Hot 100, down two places from its peak position.
Tones & I -- real name Toni Watson -- made her U.S. TV debut on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and most recently performed on NBC's The Voice.
Before her rise to fame, however, Watson was living in a van and busking on the streets of Byron Bay, Australia reports SCMP.
“When I was busking, when I was paying for petrol with silver coins or when I was sneaking into hostels so I could park my van up and sleep in it, I had the best time of my life,” Watson told Australia’s Nova radio.
