Tyla Praises Skillibeng for His Lyrics on ‘Jump’ plus Talks About Her Time in Jamaica – Watch Video

Following the release of her single Jump, South African singer Tyla has praised Jamaican Dancehall artiste Skillibeng for the Jamaican vibes that he brought to the single.

Tyla visited Jamaica, last year in November, and photos shared by the artiste of her recording music in a studio ignited speculation that she may be collaborating with a local artiste. The Water singer went on to release Jump last month, which featured American rapper Gunna in addition to Skillibeng.


During an interview on BBC Radio 1xtra, Tyla discussed the single and why she chose her collaborators. She explained that during her trip to the island, which was her first, she was recording music and, upon relistening to Jump, decided that it needed some Jamaican vibes.

Tyla said she later connected with Skillibeng, whom she praised for adding something to the single that she could not refuse. Skillibeng’s verse is featured in the intro and the outro for the track.

The official lyric video for Jump was released on March 21 and has so far amassed over 1.6 million views and 66,000 likes on YouTube. Jump is also one of the featured singles on Tyla’s self-titled debut studio album.
