Tyla gets annoyed with constant Britney Spears comparisons.

Tyla, a South African music sensation, believes the comparisons to Britney Spears are “getting boring now”.

When the 22-year-old singer debuted the music video for her single ‘Water’ in October, fans immediately pointed out that the steamy graphics were similar to Britney’s legendary ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’ ad from 2001.

Tyla didn’t like the comparison at the time, and she’s now fed up with people bringing up Britney whenever they talk about her.

During an interview with Dazed, she stated: “Honestly, when people bring up these references, most of the time there was no reference.

“It never says, ‘Make the video look completely like this.'” It’s becoming dull now.”

The ‘Overdue’ hitmaker emphasized that she and her team strive to innovate with their music videos, and that she prefers to surround herself with people who have “new and fresh ideas”.

She stated, “We have so many great stuff at this time, fresh creatives. I simply enjoy working with folks who have new and fresh ideas.”

Tyla then emphasized that choreography is rarely pre-planned and is instead merely a collection of “random people” expressing themselves “in the moment”.

She clarified: “Even the dances that we come up with, it’s literally random people who just did something they felt in the moment which just caught on and now the world is doing it.”

In March, the ‘Jump’ singer released her debut studio album ‘Tyla’, which featured contributions from Travis Scott, Becky G, Gunna, Tems, and Skillibeng.

Tyla had planned to tour following the release of the Grammy-winning album, but she was forced to postpone her plans due to an unexplained injury.

The South African musician said she was not in a hurry to hit the road, saying she needed to “take [her] time” to properly heal.

She explained, “I’m still listening to my body.”

“I think I should take my time and not rush. I want to give people amazing art and performances, but first I need to listen to my body and what it needs.”
