My Interview With Mya

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my favourite turn-of-the-century urban-pop divas. Mya had a huge run in the early noughties with epic hits like "Case Of The Ex" (below), "Free" and her massive number one Moulin Rouge collaboration "Lady Marmalade". Sadly, she fell off the music radar almost as fast as she arrived. Devoted fans understood that she was stuck in label hell but most of us thought she had retired and currently knocking back cocktails on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean. It was interesting to hear all the challenges the now 32-year-old faced and inspiring to learn that she's still on the grind with her heart set on a major label comeback. Read the entire interview over at Idolator. Now excuse me while I dust off Moodring and party like it's 2003.

I was always impressed with how well she danced and sang live. I remember her doing a lot of live singing on TV appearances and very little lipping.

She was always very 7/10 for me. I always thought she was good...but she also always left a 'meh' feeling each time she gave the charts a crack
