Tyla's Water remix reaches 1 million views

In a previous report from Briefly News, the Water Remix music video by Tyla and Travis Scott reached one million views on YouTube in the first 24 hours since the video was uploaded.

Although her fans congratulated her, some people were unimpressed by this. It took the music video too long to reach this compared to the other artists who achieved the first million in a few hours.
