And Media Take Out got ahold of Tyla’s old interview, where she seems to believe the same thing.

In the interview, Tyla explained that she looks uo to Rihanna, but that she “believes” that one day she will be even bigger than Rihanna.

Tyla is currently facing criticism for “colorism” privilege. According to many in the music industry, the South African artist is being pushed – over other Black artists like Chloe Bailey or Normani – because of her mixed race heritage.

Tyla is “colored”, and does not classify herself as Black.
