Tyla Yaweh has released his new single, “Sex Symbol,” a stylish track laced with emphatic flexes and unrelenting cool via London Entertainment/Epic Records. Taken from his upcoming album RAGER BØY, the song is also accompanied by an official music video, which was directed by Loris Russier [SiR, Ella Mai]. Watch it now below.
“Sex Symbol” sets the stage for Tyla’s album, RAGER BØY. The project is an even denser dose of the electric blend of melody and visceral thrills that propelled Tyla to stardom. It’s as much an album title as it is a lifestyle: RAGE, according to Tyla, is an acronym for Release All Good Energy.
Pairing colorful, emotional melodies with punk sensibilities, Tyla Yaweh has become one of the most dynamic artists in the industry. Since emerging initially from Florida, the 27-year-old has continued to level up. To date, his singles, which include the Post Malone-assisted Billboard Hot 100 hit “Tommy Lee,” have been streamed over 1 billion times, across platforms. Meanwhile, tracks like “All the Smoke” (featuring Gunna and Wiz Khalifa), “High Right Now,” and the DaBaby-assisted “Stuntin on You” have also accumulated hundreds of millions of streams. “Tommy Lee” was recently certified platinum, with “Stuntin On You” and “High Right Now” having previously been certified gold. “Sex Symbol” follows previous singles such as “Do No Wrong” featuring Trippie Redd and PNB Rock, plus “Hands Up” featuring Morray.
Known for his rapturous and high-octane live presence, Tyla has revved up 2022 with a slew of festival appearances, including Rolling Loud Miami, Lyrical Lemonade, Hangout, Outside Lands, and more. He just wrapped two weekends at the legendary Austin City Limits festival where his rousing live show received acclaim from fans and the media alike, with Slant Magazine exclaiming that he is “one of the best emerging live performers in the genre.” Tyla has previously toured in 2021 with SAINt JHN across North America and toured extensively around the globe with Post Malone and Swae Lee in 2019-2022.
Alongside his ever-growing fanbase, Tyla Yaweh also continues to receive critical acclaim.
NME has dubbed him “emo-rap’s next icon,” explaining that “Yaweh has quickly emerged as the brightest newcomer among hip-hop’s current crop.” Flaunt Magazine exclaimed “Tyla Yaweh is a true rockstar in every aspect of the word, arriving with undeniably lit energy and one of the smoothest, sultriest voices,” while Wall Street Journal Magazine called him one of the “biggest rising talents in Hollywood.” Complex may have put it best, stating that “the Orlando rapper has already proved that he knows how to perform with the best of them, and RAGER BØY looks to bring any of the stragglers that are still sleeping on him to attention.”
As he does so, the Orlando-born rising superstar continues to light up 2022. Get ready to continue raging.
