Tyla Drops Wet & Wild “Water” Remix Featuring Travis Scott

GRAMMY-winning global sensation Tyla unleashes the video for the remix of worldwide hit “Water” featuring hip-hop heavyweight Travis Scott.  Boasting sultry images of the South African songstress alongside Scott, the stunning visualizer taps into the irresistibly seductive tone that made “Water” a viral phenomenon and breakthrough smash hit.

In the Nabil Elderkin-directed video, Tyla delivers the first verse as she and Scott stand on opposite sides of wet, foggy glass in a shadowy space. The visual then treats fans to scenes of the rising hitmaker striking breathtaking poses as rain pours down on her. When it’s time for the rapper to add his verse, both he and Tyla find themselves on the same side of the glass.

After catching fire on social media, the original version of “Water” claimed the number one spot on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart and climbed all the way to number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 —a huge accomplishment for just Tyla’s third major offering after “Been Thinking” and “Girl Next Door,” a collaboration with  Ayra Starr.

The track — and its remixes —have kickstarted Tyla’s meteoric rise. Shortly after releasing “Water” last July, the newcomer began a meteoric ascent. The record spawned a TikTok challenge that has been shared tens-of-millions of times. Additionally, the original “Water” music video has been viewed over 145 million times, and Tyla performed the record on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon for her blockbuster U.S. TV debut—a proven rite of passage for new stars.

Tyla then nabbed the award for Best African Music Performance for “Water” at 2024 GRAMMYS, solidifying her status as an artist truly taking the world by storm. She now underlines that with the remix video featuring Travis Scott. 

Tyla’s self-titled debut album arrives on March 22nd. Pre-order TYLA here.
