African superstar singer and songwriter Tyla unleash a new dreamy single “To Last” via FAX Records/Epic Records
It notably marks her first release since 2021.
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.
Last year, Tyla made waves with “Overdue” [feat. DJ Lag & Kooldrink]. In addition to piling up over million streams, it soundtracked the Season 2 trailer for NETFLIX’s Blood and Water.
Tyla initially broke through with the 2020 smash “Getting Late” [feat. Kooldrink]. Beyond generating over 5 million streams and counting, it inspired widespread praise from PAPER, i-D, and more.
Tyla is ready “To Last” in 2022.
Tyla 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.
