TONES AND I “CAN’T BE HAPPY ALL THE TIME”

ORIGINALLY FROM AUSTRALIA’S MORNINGTON PENINSULA, TONES AND I JOURNEYED TO BYRON BAY IN EARLY 2018 TO TAKE A CHANCE AT BUSKING. ON THE FIRST DAY SHE HAD CROWDS SPILLING ONTO THE STREET, SO TONES QUIT HER RETAIL JOB AND DECIDED TO MAKE BYRON HER NEW HOME WHERE SHE LIVED OUT OF HER VAN FOR THE YEAR.

IN 2019, TONES AND I MADE CHART HISTORY WHEN SHE BECAME THE FIRST ARTIST TO SPEND 24 WEEKS AT #1 ON THE ARIA SINGLES CHART WITH HER GLOBAL SMASH ‘DANCE MONKEY’.

SINCE ITS RELEASE IN MAY 2019, THE HIT SINGLE HAS REACHED #1 IN 30 COUNTRIES, INCLUDING A RECORD-BREAKING RUN OF 11 WEEKS AT #1 IN THE UK. IN TOTAL, THE SONG HAS AMASSED OVER 7 BILLION STREAMS, HELD THE #1 SPOT FOR THE MOST STREAMED SONG GLOBALLY FOR OVER 4 MONTHS, EARNED 3 X PLATINUM CERTIFICATION IN THE US, AND REACHED MULTIPLATINUM OR DIAMOND CERTIFICATION IN FIFTEEN OTHER COUNTRIES, INCLUDING 11 X PLATINUM IN AUSTRALIA.

IN ADDITION TO BEING THE MOST SHAZAMED SONG OF ALL TIME, ‘DANCE MONKEY’ IS NOW OFFICIALLY ONE OF THE HIGHEST-STREAMED SONGS EVER ON SPOTIFY. THE SONG REACHED THE TOP 5 IN THE USA BILLBOARD HOT 100, MAKING IT THE FIRST TOP FIVE HOT 100 HIT SOLELY WRITTEN BY A WOMAN IN OVER EIGHT YEARS.

  1. I had never heard of this artist before today, boy am I glad you turned me on to her. She is unbelieveable. At first I thought she sounded a lot like Adele and she does sound a bit like her but she definately has her own style. She is an amazing talent and so young. I ended up watching a lot of her videos. Thank you. Hugs and coffee – your friend, Joni

    1. Hi Joni, thanks for watching and listening. I like Tones and I. She brings out an international flare of pop music. And yes, she is amazing with her own style.. she certainly has interesting dialect too.🤔

    2. Yes she really does. She blew me away and she is just so young. I am amazed at how talented and brave young people are with their talent. Thanks for turning me on to her. You have a rocking Wednesday. Hugs 🤗 Joni
