Tones and I — real name Toni Watson — is celebrating her hit song “Dance Monkey” hitting two billion streams.  

The singer took to Instagram to mark the milestone with a portrait of herself sitting triumphantly on a TV, and the caption, “‘Dance monkey hit 2 BILLION STREAMS this morning and I got to busk yesterday! Thank you everyone that’s crazy! Go support other buskers and Aussie artists!’ 

“Dance Monkey” is the ARIA Singles Chart’s longest-running #1 since the chart was created in 1988.  It was also the second most streamed song in the world in 2020, and has netted Watson an estimated $12 million.
