It's going to be close.

More Tones & I More Tones & I

After spending 11 straight weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles chart, Byron Bay-based artist Tones & I’s Dance Monkey might have finally met its match.

The single will have to fend off Justin Bieber’s new collab with Dan + Shay, 10,000 Hours, if it wants to continue its recording-breaking streak, with the trio’s recent cut expected to make its way into the top 3 this week.

Following Dance Monkey’s #1 spot last week, Tones & I now holds the record for most weeks at #1 on the chart by a female solo act, surpassing Whitney Houston and Sandi Thom, who both spent 10 weeks at #1.

Meanwhile, Dance Monkey has this week hit #1 on Spotify’s Global chart, while also entering the Billboard chart at #96.

On top of that, the local artist, who cleaned up at the 2019 ARIA Awards nominations, has also hit #1 Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland with Dance Monkey.
