The original version of “Water” currently sits at #18 on the Billboard 100 and continues to rise in popularity. Tyla expressed a desire to bring her native sound of Amapiano to the world, noting “People are seeing it for what it is, and the artistry and creativity that we have.” in conversation with NME. With each of her new remixes, the South African star flaunts that creativity with seamless genre blends, creating a unique, electronic atmosphere on the remix with “Marshmello” and welcoming Travis Scott, whose penchant for pensive, moody soundscapes is well-stated, into the fold where his versatility and hitmaking qualities can truly shine. “Water” isn’t just a record, it’s an energy, and with Marshmello and Travis Scott, it is easily transferable.

Both Marshmello and Travis Scott bring a unique element of starpower to “Water,” helping the already massive hit reach even higher heights via new audiences. Marshmello, one of the most prolific electronic acts of his generation, having churned out multiple multi-platinum singles and Top 40 chart placements, including a #2 placement with the late Juice WRLD in 2020. Marshmello would go on to earn a Grammy nomination of his own the following year, for his fourth album Shockwave.

Travis Scott, one of the most consistent hitmakers of the last decade, also remains one of the most versatile. The seven-time GRAMMY nominee is currently on a headling tour and has released Top 10 records on the Billboard Hot 100 with artists ranging from Drake to Bad Bunny, and that’s just in the last six months.

As 2023 comes to a close, it’s clear that “Water,” is one of its great Cinderella stories. Tyla began the year as an opener on Chris Brown’s Under The Influence Tour and made her Billboard Airplay Chart debut with “Been Thinking,” her first release of the year. Shortly after releasing “Water” in July, Tyla had become a household name. The record spawned a TikTok challenge that has been shared tens-of-millions of times, helping to earn Tyla Top 40 marks on a myriad of global charts including her first-ever placement on the Billboard Hot 100, where she has climbed into the Top 20 at #18—a huge accomplishment for just her third major offering (“Been Thinking,” “Girl Next Door” with Arya Starr).  In just over one month, the “Water” music video has been viewed over 44 million times, and Tyla performedthe record on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon for her U.S. TV debut—a proven rite of passage for new stars.

When the 2024 GRAMMY nominations were announced, Tyla’s name was in lights. “Water” earned the singer her first-ever nomination, for “Best African Music Performance,” at just 21 years old. “Water” has eclipsed Song of the Summer and is instead angling for Song of the Year status.
