Mya has swiftly grabbed one of the Grammy-winning producers, Missy Elliott, to record some tracks for her third album, all because she’s determined for more “Lady Marmalade”-like sensations, speaking to reporters at the annual Grammy Eve party hosted by Clive Davis.
To this point, the beautiful Mya, who was joined by Pink, Lil’ Kim, Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliott and even Patti LaBelle for that blast of a performance at the Grammys, has recorded with producers Damon Elliott (Pink, Destiny’s Child) and Christopher “Tricky” Stewart (Sisqo), whose protege Blu Cantrell may also make an appearance on her album that’s most likely slated for a summer release.The gorgeous ‘Case Of The Ex’ vocalist, who released her second album, ‘Fear of Flying’, in 2000, is also writing and producing several songs on her own. “To take a whole load for a whole album on yourself is very challenging and kind of hard to execute when you don’t have a reputation as a producer,” Mya said. “If you do it for fun, you get a good outcome. A lot happens and you end up coming up with a smash and you don’t even know it.”
Besides working in the studios for her brand new LP, Mya has also found the time to lend her smooth vocals to the movie version of the Broadway hit “Chicago”. The cast also include Renee Zellweger, Queen Latifah, Richard Gere and Catherine Zeta Jones, which may be out in a theatre near you sometime around Christmas. So do keep a lookout for that one.
