Tyla & Travis Scott Brave the Storm in Steamy ‘Water (Remix)’ Video: Watch

Ahead of the arrival of her eponymous debut album on Friday (March 22), Tyla is reveling in romance in the Travis Scott-assisted “Water (Remix)” video.

The blue-tinted clip arrived on Tuesday (March 19). Tyla sensually dances through the rain and gets intimate with La Flame while they’re separated by a glass window.

A shirtless Scott disregards the drizzle and pushes up on Tyla to deliver his intoxicating verse, staring through his white shades into her soul. “You keep it wet, that’s a real-life challenge/ All that ass gotta pour out of gallons/ Beauty in the top, keep balance,” he raps.

The burgeoning amapiano/R&B star initially didn’t want to have a “Water” remix, but after Travis reached out, she couldn’t resist wanting to hear what he’d bring to the record.

“I didn’t really think of doing a remix. I was like, ‘Nah, like, let’s just have “Water,” it’s cool, whatever.’ But then people were reaching out and I was like, ‘oh my word, oh my word,’” Tyla told Complex in December.

“And I started getting excited and then Travis reached out and I literally couldn’t… like, I could not say no; his music is crazy. So after he reached out, we sent him that open verse and he came back and he killed it, you know, he killed it.” 

“Water” was released by Tyla last July, with the Cactus Jack boss hopping on the official remix in November. Marshmellow also joined in on a second remix.

Tyla’s breakout hit has remained a Billboard Hot 100 staple for over five months. The track sits at No. 17 on this week’s chart after reaching a peak of No. 7.

“From the beginning of the record-making process, we made it a point to find the best chemistry between creatives from different backgrounds to reflect the worldly influences you hear in the song,” Epic Records president Ezekiel Lewis said to Billboard in January. “That is a key factor in enabling it to appeal to audiences not only in the U.S. but across the globe.”

Tyla’s self-titled debut will be unleashed on Friday (March 22) with features from Gunna, Tems, Becky G and more.
