Working diligently to define her sound and expand her reach, she started making music in 2018. She notes Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Beyonce, and Jazmine Sullivan as her biggest influences. As an old-soul, Tyra Baby has applied the stylings of these artists to her own musical persona in order to appeal to the demographics that she believes will enjoy it.

Starting her dancing career in 2019, Tyra Baby has developed an adoration for dancing and the amount of pure stress relief and peace it brought her. She says “even when I couldn’t write or record, I would go to the strip club just to be around music and other like minded individuals”. She then went on to add that some of her associates asked “when are you going to make a banger for the club or a stripper girl anthem?” and it clicked; this would be great marketing and those people can be her core demographic.
