AceShowbiz - Tones And I hit "Dance Monkey" has been named the most-searched song of all time on music service Shazam.
The app, which first launched in 2002, enables users to identify unfamiliar songs, and the Australian singer's breakout 2019 single has since become the top tune on the platform, which was lauched as a smartphone app in 2008
The artist, real name Toni Watson, credits the app, which is used by over 200million people each month and is owned by Apple Music, with widening her appeal.
"Shazam has been a huge platform for me in terms of reaching people," she tells Variety.
"I didn't have a following when I released 'Dance Monkey', but it gave me the opportunity to reach more people and elevate my fan-base, which has all (led) to creating a career for myself.
"Shazam is definitely an app designed to help more unknown artists, and everyone knows Tones loves an up-and-comer!."
The rest of the top 10 is made up of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud", "Cheap Thrills" by Sia Furler, Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know", "This Girl" from Kungs vs Cookin' on 3 Burners, and "Take Me to Church" by Hozier.The top 10 chart for the Shazam:
