thoughts. B.
I was never a huge Mya fan, mostly around the time when she was really popular in the late 90’s. I was an Aaliyah fan and in my opinion Mya couldn’t hold a candle to her, plus her face annoyed me for some reason. I didn’t start liking her until her Fear of Flying album came out. Mya is her debut and it’s OK, not a bad OK just a really decent one. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I kinda went into this listen thinking it was going to be a mediocre album at best. I did like her single releases especially My First Night With You. It’s All About Me is all right; they played it out when it first dropped. As far as Movin’ On goes, the remix with Silk The Shocker (use to have a crush on him) is a lot better than the original which oddly bored me. I’d have to say that where this album shines is with the album only tracks, which is kinda rare (especially on the American album side). The stand out being Baby It’s Yours, I put it on repeat I liked it so much. I also enjoyed If You Died I Wouldn’t Cry Cause You Never Loved Me Anyway (wow), If You Were Mine and Don’t Be Afraid. The rest were decent, except for Bye Bye feat. Missy Elliot, that track can go straight in the garbage. Mya has a pleasant enough voice, it’s never wowed me, but it suits her. A nice debut, but my favorite album from her as of now is Fear of Flying.
