Who is Mya?

Mya Harrison, professionally known mononymously as Mya, is an American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, actress, and model.Born and raised in Washington, D.C., Mya's eponymous debut album with Interscope Records was released in April 1998, and sold over 2 million copies in the United States, producing the gold-certified top ten single "It's All About Me" featuring Sisqo. Mya's second studio album, platinum-selling Fear of Flying, was released in 2000 and became a success stateside and worldwide, with lead single "Case of the Ex" becoming Mýa's breakthrough hit, reaching number-one on the Australian Singles Chart. A year after, Harrison won her first Grammy Award for the worldwide number-one hit "Lady Marmalade", a cover version she recorded alongside Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, and Pink for the soundtrack of the film Moulin Rouge! (2001). The singer's third album, Moodring, was released in July 2003 stateside and eventually certified gold by the RIAA. Following several label changes, Mýa's often-delayed fourth studio album, Liberation (2007), received a download-release in Japan only and led to her 2008 Japan-exclusive album Sugar & Spice.
