Tyla Drops Self-Titled Debut Album: Stream It Now

Tyla finally delivered her self-titled debut studio album Friday (March 22) via FAX and Epic Records.

The 14-track project includes her breakout hit “Water,” its Travis Scott remix that just got a music video, and more collaborations with fellow South African DJ/producer Kelvin Momo (“Intro”), Tems (“No. 1”), Gunna and Skillibeng (“Jump”) and Becky G (“On My Body”). Tyla also features previously released tracks “Truth or Dare,” “On and On” and “Butterflies” — which had been bundled as a Tyla EP at the end of 2023 — as well as her 2022 single “To Last.” She also gave BLACKPINK‘s Lisa the “first listen” of the 10th track, “A.R.T.”

Tyla’s lead single “Water” reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won the inaugural Grammy award for best African music performance this year. The singer was also featured on Billboard‘s 2024 R&B/Hip-Hop Artists to Watch list.

The 22-year-old South African popiano singer had been gearing up to take her eponymous debut album all over the world with her first headlining tour starting March 21, but she had to push back those dates and cancel her Coachella performance because of “an injury that has tragically worsened.”

“I am absolutely heartbroken to have to say this but as of right now I won’t be able to proceed with the tour,” she wrote in an Instagram letter earlier this month addressed to her fanbase, the Tygers. “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.”
