Tones & I has cracked the top ten!

More Tones & I More Tones & I

Emerging Aussie artist Tones & I is quickly making a name for herself both locally and abroad and this week's ARIA chart movements are yet further proof of that. 

The Byron Bay-based songwriter has cracked the top ten on the Singles chart with her track Dance Monkey (placed last week at #17) with her other track, Johnny Run Away, holding at #16. 

She is the first local act to have two songs in the top 20 since Dean Lewis in April (7 Minutes at #10 and Be Alright at #17).

It comes after The Music revealed Tones & I inked deals with Paradigm in the US and UK's Free Trade Agency earlier this year. She will play Splendour In The Grass next week.

Meanwhile new entries on the Singles chart this week include Post Malone's Goodbyes featuring Young Thug (#5) and Ed Sheeran's Best Part Of Me featuring Yebba (#24) and his collab with Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton, Blow (#40).
