Tipped to be Africa’s rising worldwide Pop star, Tyla gears up for a major moment with a brand-new single entitled “To Last” today via FAX Records/Epic Records. It notably marks her first release since 2021.
The track layers a head-nodding bass line above an Amapiano-style groove. She leans into this soundscape with confessional lyrics such as “You never gave us a chance, it’s like you never wanted us to last.”
Taking a left turn, the momentum spirals into a dancefloor-ready bounce uplifted by her vocal echoes. Stay tuned for the premiere of a cinematic music video to accompany the single very soon.
Tyla has been hard at work on her upcoming album produced by none other than Tricky Stewart (Beyoncé “Break My Soul” amongst countless others) and Theron Thomas to mention a few. Tyla is definitely ready “To Last” in 2022.
Growing up of Indian, Zulu, Mauritian, Irish descent, TYLA instinctively understood the power of diversity as a child in Johannesburg.
She spent countless hours honing her voice at home, singing with her siblings every Sunday as part of a weekly tradition. At the same time, dad introduced her to R&B and soul, encouraging her to eventually experiment with styles and cultures.
By high school, she began posting covers on Instagram before catching the attention of her Creative Director Garth Von Glehn. She wrote and recorded “Getting Late” with Kooldrink in 2020.
Upon the video release in January 2021, it resounded around the globe, reeling in millions of views and notching tastemaker praise.
