And now, with the highly-anticipated sophomore album Home dropping in 2022, this single stands tall as an anthem of affirmation – ‘It Worked.’
On what Tyson wants audiences to take from the single, he said;
“From my upcoming project I want my audience to learn to live in the moment and their daily experiences. My music is gonna reflect time spent in the car, with friends and an afternoon at home. They gonna leave the first listen ready to do something”
