The “Water” hitmaker announced on Thursday (March 7) that she’s canceling her North American and Europe tour dates and pulling out a handful of festivals.

Tyla penned a heartfelt letter to fan on Instagram, revealing that she’s been privately battling a health issue.

She shared that her injury had “tragically worsened,” which forced her to cancel the trek altogether. The tour was slated to kick off in Oslow, Norway, on March 21, and then eventually make its way stateside in April, and wrapping up in May.

“As much as this is something I would rather have dealt with privately, it’s important that I share what I have to share with you today,” she wrote. “For the past year I’ve been silently suffering with an injury that has tragically worsened. I’ve seen doctors and specialists with high hopes but the pain has only become more agonizing as has the severity of the situation.

“I am absolutely heartbroken to have to say this but as of right now I won’t be able to proceed with the tour. In consulting with medical professionals it’s become increasingly clear that continuing any festival or tour dates would jeopardize my long-term health and safety.”

Tyla asked her Tygers not to “worry too much,” as they’ll still be seeing plenty of her around. “Just know when I’m back to performing pain free, I’m gonna be even more of a problem,” the Grammy-winning singer added in the caption. “It’s hard having to turn down opportunities you’ve been waiting your whole life for but God has his plan.”

While the amapiano-R&B sensation won’t be hitting the stage soon, that hasn’t slowed down Tyla’s album rollout, as her highly anticipated debut LP is slated to arrive on March 22.

Named one of Billboard‘s R&B/Hip-Hop Artists to Watch in 2024, the 22-year-old’s eponymous album will feature 14 tracks, including “Water” and the anthem’s Travis Scott-assisted remix.
