Tyla’s “Water” Goes Platinum In South Africa

Tyla’s song “Water” has received a platinum certification from the Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA).

In South Africa, the only organization authorized to grant gold, platinum, and multi-platinum certification is RiSA. The certification was made public prior to Tyla’s scheduled trip to Los Angeles for the 66th Grammy Awards, which will take place on February 5th. Tyla is a nominee for Best African Music Performance.

Tyla has solidified her status as one of Africa’s rising stars during the last 12 months. In addition to reaching the top 20 on multiple international Billboard charts, “Water” received platinum certifications in Brazil, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland.

In addition to Belgium, the global smash also has gold status in France, Portugal, Norway, Denmark, UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Greece, and Turkey. Tyla debuted nationally on television in October on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Her self-titled debut album is scheduled for release in March and is currently available for pre-order (link is external). “Water” and the focal tracks “On & On” and “Truth Or Dare,” which started to pick up steam near the end of 2023, will be included on the album.

With her music, 21-year-old Tyla explores pop, R&B, amapiano, and Afrobeats in a fresh way. She is co-managed by We Make Music and Africa Creative Agency, and she is signed to Epic Records in a joint venture with Johannesburg, New York-based Fax Records.
