Tyla Unveils Her Identity Through Self-Titled Debut Album

Tyla Unveils Her Identity Through Self-Titled Debut Album

Emerging onto the scene with her hit single “Water,” Tyla solidifies her presence with her debut LP, simply titled TYLA.

On this self-titled project, the South African songstress seamlessly blends R&B, rap, and pop influences with the captivating sounds of amapiano, delivering a mesmerizing and unforgettable formal introduction to her artistry.

Reflecting on the creation of TYLA, the 22-year-old artist shares, “I’m speaking about the things that I’ve gone through while creating the album – basically three years in the making. I was becoming a woman. So it was a lot of growing that happened, and me realizing my worth and realizing how I want to be treated – and how basically, I’m that girl, and people need to know I’m that girl.”

Authenticity to her African roots was paramount for Tyla in crafting the 14-track album. She explains, “Since I started experimenting with amapiano, it’s really helped me get to this point where I created something that is fresh and new, but still familiar and comes from home. Even though I am mixing amapiano with pop and R&B, I didn’t want it to sound watered down. Music is our everything in Africa – the way we speak, the way we dance. It’s just in us. It’s our essence.”

TYLA features an impressive lineup of collaborations, including appearances from Tems, Gunna, Kelvin Momo, Skillibeng, Becky G, and Travis Scott on the steamy “Water” remix.
