Tones And I’s ‘Dance Monkey’ is hot right now, everywhere. The homegrown earworm comes in at No. 3 on Apple Music’s new Shazam Discovery Top 50, a new global chart which ranks the rising stars.
Published for the first time today, the new survey tracks the global performance of 50 up-and-coming songs from breaking artists, and is powered by Shazam’s algorithms.
The inaugural chart is hip-hop heavy at the top, with Ohana Bam’s ‘All Roads Lead Home (Hobbs & Shaw Remix)’ featuring Token at No. 1, followed by A$ton Wyld’s ‘Next Level.’
“Dance Monkey’ is swinging in Australia, where it has locked up top spot on the ARIA Singles Chart for three consecutive weeks, meaning Tones becomes the first Australian female solo artist to achieve that feat since Gabriella Cilmi’s ‘Sweet About Me’ managed four weeks at the top back in 2008.

Tones’ second release is also the fastest rising single in the U.K. this week, and it’s getting 70 million global streams each month.
Currently, the Shazam Discovery chart ranks songs that are trending in Australia and over 10 countries, with artists from more countries due to impact the list in the weeks and months ahead.
