Tyla’s music pushes boundaries. Infused with her vibrant personality, her songs offer an innovative take on pop and R&B, shimmering with the euphoria of South African amapiano, and an otherworldly approach to production that makes every track feel like something totally new. The Johannesburg native introduced herself internationally with her debut “Getting Late” featuring Kooldrink, a bouncy, lust-filled track. Her promise in the chorus—“I won’t waste your time”—took on a double meaning. Suddenly, the passionate artist whose cold DMs to music industry power players had gone unanswered was a global lightning rod for bold self-expression. “Been Thinking” and “To Last,” her debut singles via Epic Records, pushed Tyla’s artistry forward and solidified her versatility as she bounded towards her goals, while her beloved collaboration with Arya Starr, “Girl Next Door,” secured Tyla her first Billboard chart appearance and had her knocking on the door of mainstream success.
