GRAMMY-nominated South African global star Tyla has announced her self-titled debut album, TYLA.

In line with the album's announcement, she has released three brand new tracks, "Truth or Dare", "Butterflies" and, "On&On".

Tyla became the highest-charting African female solo artist ever on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, earlier this week, when her track "Water" ascended to its current a top ten position.

In conversation with Cosmopolitan in October, Tyla emphasised her will to fuse genres and styles as she explores her artistry. “Rap, R&B, pop, our type of house in South Africa—not the oontz-oontz type. Jazz, literally almost everything,” she says, describing the music that soundtracked her youth. “So I had a wide variety, and I fell in love with it all. I think that’s why my sound is a fusion of a lot of different things—because I don’t like just one sound.”

TYLA is set for release in 2024.
