Tyla was born in Johannesburg, South Africa into a Coloured family of direct Xhosa and Zulu, cultural lineages.

She started out posting original songs and covers to her Instagram account, as well as sending them out to a number of figures in the music industry, subsequently being discovered by her first manager who then organized her first recording sessions.
In late 2019, Tyla released her debut single, “Getting Late” featuring production from Kooldrink, which achieved national success. The accompanying music video was nominated for Music Video of the Year at the 28th South African Music Awards in 2022. She then signed a recording contract with Epic Records through a joint venture with Fax Records in the United States. She followed up this effort with the singles “To Last” and “Overdue”.
Her debut performance came in 2023 at Milan Fashion Week, following the release of her single “Been Thinking”, which earned Tyla her first chart placement of her career, on the Billboard Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. Heven Haile of Pitchfork described it as a “slick club anthem that channels the seductive pop-R&B hits of mid-2000s Ciara and Rihanna”. Tyla then joined Chris Brown as the opening act for the European leg of his Under the Influence Tour.
In May 2023, she released the single “Girl Next Door”, featuring Nigerian singer Ayra Starr. She also later released the song “Water” in July 2023 as the lead single from her upcoming debut extended play. After spawning a viral dance challenge on the social media platform TikTok, the song entered the top 10 in New Zealand, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, where it topped the UK Afrobeats Singles Chart. Entering at number 67, “Water” made Tyla the youngest-ever South African and the first South African soloist in 55 years to enter the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, following Hugh Masekela’s “Grazing in the Grass” in 1968. Its accompanying music video, released on 7 October 2023, accumulated 3 million views on YouTube in three days.
