South African singer Tyla's first studio album just dropped, and her fans are already giving it a big thumbs up. 

'TYLA', the South African star's debut studio album, was released on Friday, March 22. The 14-track album features Tems, Becky G, Gunna, Skillibeng, and Mzansi producer Kelvin Momo. 

Her 'Water' remix with Travis Scott also made the cut. Tyla also has a remix with Marshmello. That version does not feature. It is, however, still available on streaming platforms. 

Tyla has been counting down the days to her album launch. The release is a defining moment for the rising star, as many have questioned if she is just a one-hit wonder. 

The 22-year-old is determined to show the world what she is made of as an artist. 

"I'm more than just one song. I'm a real artist. I have a lot of ideas. I have a lot that I want to share and do in my lifetime as the artist Tyla. I just want people to listen with open ears and open minds because it is fresh and new. When people are hearing this album they are going to be hearing new things. It's exciting," she told E! News.

A third wrote: "I’m in love with it already and I’m only 3 songs in."
