As Tyla‘s “Water” hit keeps getting hotter — and climbing higher on the Billboard Hot 100 — some big names in music are jumping on it: Travis Scott and Marshmello came out with two new remixes on Friday (Nov. 17).
Scott’s wavy flow feels reminiscent of what he did on the 2017 track “Know No Better” with Major Lazer, Camila Cabello and Quavo, while Marshmello’s mix adds a new level of buoyancy. The Houston rapper’s version of the African smash hit made its live debut Thursday night at GQ‘s Man of the Year party in Los Angeles.
“Water” is currently No. 18 on the Hot 100 and No. 5 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and it’s topped both the U.S. Afrobeats Songs and World Digital Song Sales charts. The song also received a 2024 Grammy nomination for the new best African music performance category.
“This hasn’t happened in so long for a South African artist, born and raised in South Africa, with an African song, with an African dance style. Everything is so authentic, and the fact that all of that managed to translate overseas is crazy,” Tyla told Billboard during her October R&B/Hip-Hop Rookie of the Month interview. “I always wanted to be the biggest pop star in general. I didn’t want to be the biggest African pop star. I just want to be the biggest pop star that was born and raised in Africa. And the fact that I’m already getting a good response from the world [means] I’m one step closer to that dream.”
