mya: liberated.

MYA has this tendency to disappear for a year or two, only to pop back onto the music scene unexpected with some hotness.

She stormed onto the hip-hop scene with the help of Sisqo in 1998 with her debut album Mya. This led into successful soundtrack singles "Ghetto Superstar" (Bulworth) and "Take Me There" (Rugrats: The Movie). She disappeared for two years, returning full force with hits like "The Best of Me (remix)" and "The Case of the Ex". A year later we got "Lady Marmalade" and then...Poof! She was gone again. Well, she went on to do some acting that wasn't too she might as well have been gone. She returned two years after the success of "Lady Marmalade" with Moodring, her least successful album to this date. Either way, this album brought us the sexalicious video for "My Love is Like...Wo!", and I consider that a success.

Now, after three years in hiding, word is that she'll be back this summer with a new album called Liberation. The album boasts production by Dr. Dre, Scott Storch, and Lil Jon...but as we know, great producers do not a good album make. I'm curious to see what Mya comes up with as a final product. She's always seemed a little confused to me about whether she wants to appeal to a TRL audience or an urban audience. Sometimes I wonder if she realizes that she once appealed to both...and if she could just find that formula again, she'd be set.

Take a listen here at the moneyshot!! to some tunes off of the upcoming Liberation of Mya. I wish her luck, but only because she once wrote a song called "If You Died I Wouldn't Cry Because You Never Loved Me Anyway".


BUY Mood Ring, BUY Fear of Flying, BUY Mya
