Dance Monkey continues to boogie at the top of the Official Singles Chart, earning Tones and I a mammoth seventh week at Number 1.
By extending her lead at the top, Australian singer-songwriter Tones and I – real name Toni Watson – now has the longest-running UK chart-topper by a female lead since Leona Lewis’s Bleeding Love, which spent seven weeks at Number 1 in 2007.
Dance Monkey scored 83,000 chart sales to keep its spot at the summit, including 9.6 million streams. Watch Tones receive her Official Number 1 Award and talk about the global success of the song below:
"It’s overwhelming to think this song is really resonating in another country," Tones and I told Official Charts. It’s a really good feeling, I’m really proud of myself. Dance Monkey is a special song for me and my friends – I wrote it for them. It’s always going to be a song that reminds me of busking, playing in streets and making people happy."
