Several songs on the 14-track album have already been streamed millions of times on platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.

"There’s no girl of the moment quite like Tyla," the US publication said about the star. 

The "pretty girl from Joburg" couldn't stop bragging about her home country in the interview. 

"Wherever I go, I represent my home, I represent South Africa in my music and in just myself. As I get bigger, I’m always be sure that South Africa’s name is uplifted. The [amapiano] genre, the music, the culture—it all comes with me. This is not only, my moment, but also Africa’s moment too," she told Harper's Bazaar
