Tyla took the world by storm with the release of her hit track “Water.” The song went viral on Tik Tok, both for audiences liking it generally, but also for the dance accompanied with the track. Tyla explained the style of dance is called Bacardi, which in short has elements of twerking mixed with complex leg work and deliberate body movements. Despite how intricate, Tyla makes the dance look easy, causing viewers to be amazed.
The South African singer tapped into her roots with track itself being an amapiano, a subgenre of house music hailing from South Africa. There are also elements of pop and rnb, showcasing her unique style and range.
Of course, a hit track is often followed up with a remix, leading to Travis Scott hopping onto “Water.” The track holds most of the original structure with a touch of classic Travis Scott adlibs and a melodic 2nd verse. This pairing although is unexpected, works very well, and Scott’s verse adds a unique element to the song.
The young artist is on the rise, so be ready for her album release ‘TYLA,’ on March 1st, 2024. In the meantime, take a listen to the remix below!
