It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Mya, the R&B songstress who’s collected more Moonmen than NASA and Jim Carrey combined. Her fourth studio album, Liberation, has been in the works since 2004, and finally has a release date later this fall, so expect to see a lot more of her as the weather turns colder. With guest spots from Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne, and the production and songwriting talents of such gents as Scott Storch and Brian Michael Cox, the album already sounds like a runaway success.
That’s exactly what you’d expect from Ms. Mya, who stormed the charts in the late ’90s. She sealed her place in pop-culture history with “Lady Marmalade” and its Moulin Rouge tie-in video, which featured Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya and Pink, each of whom was wearing frilly, lacy items of clothing people normally associate words like “boudoir” and “Paris.” Following that, she told us how “My Love Is Like . . . Wo,” and she signed a six-figure modeling contract. It’s easy to understand why. Check out these pics to see.
