Future Hit: Tones and I's 'Dance Monkey'
The Australian newcomer has a global smash on her hands with 'Dance Monkey.'

Tones And I’s seemingly inevitably march to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 continues with her first US television performance. The Aussie newcomer dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to belt out her world-conquering hit “Dance Monkey.” Showing maturity well beyond her 19 years, Toni Watson begins at the piano. She delivers note-perfect vocals over tinkling keys, before standing up and belting out the banger over punchy beats and slippery synths.

After breaking long-standing chart records at home (it has been number one for 16 weeks), Tones And I’s unstoppable single caught fire on Spotify and promptly went on to top the charts in 18 countries around the world including France, Germany and the UK. Along the way, “Dance Monkey” has racked up a whopping 650 million streams and established the talented teenager as one of 2019’s breakout stars. Impressively, there are more hits to come on her very good debut EP, The Kids Are Coming.
