Tyla had everyone jumping from their seats during her performance of “Jump” with Gunna and Skillibeng at the 2024 BET Awards Sunday night (June 30).

Four women cleverly painted as different parts of a tiger laid across the floor of a cage, swishing its “tail” (one woman’s painted arm) before Skillibeng kicked off the performance with his memorable “Original gyal, you are no replica (No)” intro. Tyla descended upon the stage in a rope swing and boldly entered the cage before singing her viral lyric “They never had a pretty girl from Joburg. See me now, and that’s what they prefurrr.”

Gunna delivered his verse next to an elephant statue before Skilli re-entered the stage while being escorted by men on stilts that Tyla danced underneath.

After canceling her first headlining world tour and Coachella performance earlier this year due to an injury, Tyla has picked up a few performance gigs, including Spotify Beach at Cannes Lions and Afro Nation Portugal earlier this month. “Jump” is the latest single from her self-titled debut album, which was released in March via FAX and Epic Records. It’s currently No. 19 on Rhythmic Airplay and No. 3 on U.S. Afrobeats Songs (charts dated June 29).

Nominated for four awards, Tyla has already taken home two this evening for best new artist and best international act. She also scored nods for viewer’s choice award for her Billboard Hot 100 No. 7 smash “Water” and best female R&B/pop artist. Gunna is also up for three awards: best male hip-hop artist, album of the year with A Gift & A Curse and viewer’s choice award with “Fukumean.”
