“Tyla Yaweh is already doing big things […] there’s a pop sensibility to Tyla’s music that makes it palatable to the masses…” – Pigeons and Planes
“…the 23-year-old rapper is clearly on his own wave and he’s making music that crosses ‘all genres’ with a tip of positivity.” – Hot New Hip Hop
“[His]infectious energy is a key reason Yaweh was able to win over so many people…” – Billboard
“Yaweh lets loose the sort of rock-tinged, trap-infused R&B that’s earned him comparisons to Swae Lee… With stylistic range, a Post Malone co-sign and a sizable buzz at his back, Yaweh is all set to level up. Get to know him…” – XXL
(MAY 7, 2019 – LOS ANGELES, CA) – Today, rising genre-defying star Tyla Yaweh drops the cinematic music video for his latest single, “High Right Now.” Watch the video HERE!
Earlier this morning, HYPEBEASTexclusively premiered the visual directed by Sebastian Sdaigui [2 Chainz, Ariana Grande].
“The song is about my life,” explains Yaweh. “I’m living an ultimate high. I went from being homeless to traveling the globe with Rockstars, being able to connect and spread positive vibes to so many people.”
“High Right Now” proves equally intoxicating and irresistible. Yaweh levitates through an ornate church as gorgeous gothic ballerinas sway to the echoes of airy clean guitar and codeine-drenched trap drums. His woozy flows give way to a fiery falsetto refrain, “I’m so high right now. I don’t think I’ll ever come down.” With its ominous setting, this alternative hip-hop séance casts an unbreakable spell.
A standout from Yaweh’s new project Heart Full of Rage [London Entertainment/Epic Records], “High Right Now” has already cracked 8.6 million streams and counting, and currently finds him covering the coveted Signed XOXO playlist on Spotify. Meanwhile, the project as a whole recently tallied in excess of 27.5 million streams world-wide.
Right now, he continues to bring his high-energy show on a world tour alongside Post Malone and Jaden Smith in Australia, having recently wrapped a European arena run supporting Malone himself. Yaweh recently shared an explosive performance video of “High Right Now” live from Europe, which can be viewed HERE. At the end of May, he returns stateside for a series of high-profile festival spots over the Summer and Fall, including Governors Ball (Bud Light Dive Bar Sessions), Bonnaroo, Firefly, Lollapalooza, Life is Beautiful and more. Additionally, he is confirmed for a slew of European sets, including the iconic Reading and Leeds. Check out the confirmed itinerary below.
All signs point to a major breakthrough for Tyla Yaweh. One hit of Heart Full of Rage, and you’ll be hooked. Get it HERE.
