Fast-rising South African star, Tyla has released her self-titled album after teasing fans with a couple of singles, including the remix of Water.
Apart from the original and remix of Water, the new album 5-track compilation titled Tyla has three other fresh sounds, including Butterflies, On and On, and Truth or Dare.
Butterflies is an acoustic rhythm and is not as high-tempo as Water. Nonetheless, this emotive tune has its place and will pass for meditation purposes.
The 2024 Grammy nominee recently teamed up with American rapper and singer Travis Scott, on the remix of Water, which is ranked among the hottest R&B/Hip-Hops songs on the Billboard Chart.
American music producer and Disc Jockey (DJ) Marshmello had also done his mash-up of Water which is competing for Best African Performance at the Grammy on February 4, 2024.
Truth or Dare is a good anthem, and just like Water, it would possibly get staunch fans of Tyla jamming, as they have already fallen in love with the other two singles on the album, which has over four million playbacks on Audiomack alone.
Tyla’s original Water reportedly recorded 11.4 million official U.S. streams and continues to set new records both online and offline. The song had made waves on TikTok before sneaking into mainstream media.
Water, nominated recently in the Best African Music category for the 2024 Grammys, has also recorded impressive streams on Spotify. The remix with the two new guests, Travis Scott and Marshemello is also taking off gradually across streaming platforms.
It is not possible to predict what the records on the new album could set, but industry watchers believe Tyla will attain more laurels once she has set the ball rolling.
Born Tyla Laura Seethal, she was recently adjudged Best Female Artiste at the African Entertainment Awards USA. The 21-year-old has been recording music in 2019 to date, releasing her debut single, Getting Later which was widely accepted in her home country and beyond.
In May 2023, the young entertainer released the single Girl Next Door featuring Rush hitmaker Ayra Starr, before releasing chart-climbing Water.
