Global music sensation, Tyla, has made yet another international TV appearance.

The “Water” hitmaker sat down with US singer, Jennifer Hudson, on her talk show, just one month after her sit down on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon“.

The pair discussed Hudson’s deep love for African music, as well as Tyla’s rise to success in the competitive music business.

Showing off her viral dance moves, Tyla and the “Dream Girl’s” star practiced the steps together.


Hudson, herself a two-time Grammy winner, also congratulated the South African artist on her recent Grammy-nod.    

The 21-year-old was nominated in the ‘Best African Music Performance’ category alongside fellow African stars, including Musa Keys, Davido, and Burna Boy.  

The Johannesburg-born singer joins a long list of South Africans, including Black Coffee, Thuso Mbedu, Trevor Noah and Charlize Theron, who’ve found success on the global stage.

Her hit single “Water“, which has been a top 10 hit in many countries, is the first song by a South African soloist to enter the US Billboard Hot 100 since the late jazz legend, Hugh Masekela, released “Grazing in the Grass” in 1968.
