South African artist Tyla drops album following Grammy win

Tyla, the South African singer-songwriter, released her first album titled “TYLA” after winning a Grammy Award. The album features collaborations with artists like Travis Scott and Tems.

South African musician Tyla, fresh off her Grammy win last month, unveils her debut album “TYLA” on Friday. The 22-year-old gained international recognition with her amapiano hit “Water,” blending house, jazz, and log drums, reaching top positions on charts in the U.S. and Britain.

“TYLA” boasts 15 tracks, showcasing a fusion of pop, R&B, amapiano, and Afrobeats, reflecting her diverse musical upbringing. Collaborations with renowned artists like Travis Scott and Tems enrich the album’s sound.

Tyla’s Grammy win for best African music performance highlights the rising global influence of Afrobeats and African music, propelled further by platforms like TikTok. Her song “Water” went viral on TikTok, spawning the #WaterChallenge and amplifying her reach.

Excitement mounts as Tyla hints at a potential collaboration with BLACKPINK’s Lisa, signalling a cross-cultural exchange between South African and K-pop music scenes. With “TYLA,” Tyla solidifies her place in the global music landscape, celebrating her roots while embracing diverse influences.
