I used to work at a surf shop on Bourke Street, which is really the busiest part of Melbourne. And there was like, you could busk on Bourke Street. I really, really wanted to busk. One of my friends was like, you should come to Byron because you can literally just park up and busk out of the side of your van. So I bought a van, moved to Byron Bay and started living in my van.

That was pretty cool. She came in, and lived with me and my family for a while after there, and worked out of my studio a lot in that first year while she was busking.

I was busking day, day, day, day — in the winter, when no one else would busk. In the rain, when no one else would be busking, I would be busking. It was about, no matter what, being able to get more fans. So there might be 20 people that night that would otherwise never know who I was. Other buskers started getting angry at me.

Some started a Facebook group. They just hated how big the crowds were getting. No one does. By the second song there were always like 10, 20 people. By the fifth, the crowd was hectic every single time.

But there was one night that was very frustrating. And I wrote a song about that. I put the other loop down. It just felt so right. Like a proper cracker. She came into the studio, and played me the song how she played it. And then it was sort of our job in the studio to make it, I guess like, radio friendly. Just about that bass drop, making sure that it was not too straight, that it really swung. Any Australian artist ever, and any song at number one, the most consecutive weeks.

I used to work at a surf shop on Bourke Street, which is really the busiest part of Melbourne. And there was like, you could busk on Bourke Street. I really, really wanted to busk. One of my friends was like, you should come to Byron because you can literally just park up and busk out of the side of your van.

I actually cried when it hit one million views. Nearly made me cry. I am such a proud mum, I really am.

The song was produced and mixed by Konstantin Kersting. Upon release, Tones and I said the song is about the expectations that are placed on musical performers. It peaked within the top ten in many other countries, including the United States, at number four, where it also became the first top-five hit solely written by a woman in over eight years. In the United Kingdom, "Dance Monkey" broke the record for the most weeks spent at the top of the UK Singles Chart by a female artist when it remained at the top of the chart for an eleventh week.

Toni Watson , known professionally as Tones and I , is an Australian singer and songwriter. By mid-January , "Dance Monkey" had spent its 24th and final week at No. She explained choosing a musical career: "One day I was at the park with my family, all my cousins and stuff, in Frankston We were all just singing a song and my aunty was like 'oh guys, she can actually hold a note. I was probably like 7 years old. Tones and I learned to play keyboards and drum pads while at secondary school. In September , the singer-songwriter travelled to Byron Bay to try busking there. The artist spent living between Walkden-Brown's home in the Gold Coast hinterland and in her van in Byron Bay, writing music and busking full-time. In May , Tones performed at the Big Pineapple Music Festival, as well as opening Splendour in the Grass as the Triple J Unearthed Splendour in the Grass competition winner, [30] where she broke the record for the biggest crowd of an opening set.
