The first, self-titled LP from decorated South African native and Grammy winning Global Pop Star Tyla, has surpassed the 1,000,000,000 Spotify stream mark and well on the way to meeting her goal of ‘bringing Amapiano to the world’ since joining Epic Records in 2021.

The streaming milestone comes two weeks after the release of the artist’s latest music video, “Jump,” an international concept filmed in South Africa and Jamaica, featuring cameos by Gunna and Skillibeng. Directed by NABIL, the video has already been viewed 8,000,000+ times.

Celebrating its first anniversary in July, “Water” is the massive single that launched Tyla into global stardom. Born Tyla Laura Seethal, the singer followed the success of her Summer 2023 with several career highlights, including becoming the highest-charting African female soloist on the Billboard Hot 100, her first-career Grammy Award nomination, and victory in the Best African Music Performance’ category.

In 2024, Tyla’s freshman LP was the highest-charting female African soloist on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, and she impacted the Billboard Hot R&B Songs Chart, Rhythmic Airplay and Mainstream R&B/Hip Hop Airplay charts with “Water” peaking at #1, and the American Afrobeats Chart debuted with 12 songs.
