@MYAPLANET9 just shared new music from her upcoming LP on IGLive. Says she plans to take it "back to the roots." Gospel Mya coming, y'all.

She's really not doing gospel is she? :-?

By "back to the roots" I hope they mean an actual album she put effort into instead of this EP with random songs that just happens to work and not sound too bad.

It is a gospel song. :lol: Someone mentioned it on their Instagram.

When I read "back to the roots", I was thinking a Fear of Flying/Moodring 2.0 was coming. :lol:

With Mya you never really know what's she up to though musically.

6 Millennium Era Hits That Top 40 Needs to Sample

Mýa — “Case of the Ex (Whatcha Gonna Do)”

Something similar could be done with a song that’s less retro-futuristic, more just retro. Mýa’s ridiculously catchy “Case of the Ex” was popular enough (No. 2 for three weeks on the Hot 100 in 2002) to be familiar, but not ubiquitous enough to be played out—she’s like the least famous person on 2001’s “Lady Marmalade.” Producer Tricky Stewart’s finger snaps and horn-like stabs are of their era but still feel like they’re part of the same conversation as plenty of bouncy, word-wise pop today. Indeed, the lyrical concept—Mýa hurls questions at a lover about how he’ll handle his ex—is strong enough that it too could be repurposed in a 2017 track. A clear-voiced young singer with a strong sense of identity like Kehlani (or maybe Halsey in a pinch) could work wonders here, though the Weeknd's got a baked-in storyline for the gossip folks.

I heard Case of the Ex the other day and it still sounds fresh. It's one of the most distinctive sounding songs I've heard. The lyrics are too real for this life. :lol:

Can't Believe came on my Cherish(girl group) song radio yesterday and that might be my fave ballad from her. Her vocals were on point on that song.

Case of the Ex does still sound fresh. I wouldn't mind it being sampled but she wouldn't benefit from it though. That sucks. I don't agree with Pitchfork either about it not being ubiquitous. That song was literally everywhere.

Case of The Ex will forever be a bop.

And yes Can't Believe was my favorite song from Fear of Flying. Although tbh, I didn't care much for the album.

Ranking every MTV VMAs Video of the Year

27. Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya, and Pink (feat. Missy Elliott), “Lady Marmalade” (2001)
It had to have been the combined star power here that made this Moulin Rouge clip win over U2’s “Beautiful Day,” Eminem’s “Stan” featuring Dido, Janet Jackson’s “All for You,” and Elliott’s solo “Get Ur Freak On” in 2001. Really, who could resist all of these ladies together?
