It's after midday and she's on the phone... Joel and David are beyond shook to be speaking with Grammy-winning, multi platinum-selling superstar Mýa in this very special episode of Right Back At Ya!. For over two decades, Mýa has been a force to be reckoned with in the industry, turning out global hits like 'Case of The Ex', 'Ghetto Superstar', 'Lady Marmalade', 'Free' and more. She can sing, she can dance, she can act, she can produce, and run her own label... is there anything this multi-hyphenate can't do? In this fabulous and heartfelt chat, Mýa discusses her breaking into the industry as a teen, the story behind 'Case of The Ex', her experience making 'Lady Marmalade' (with Christina Aguilera, P!nk and Lil' Kim), her favourites on the "Moodring" album, and the sonic suggestion Prince gave her. She also reminisced on filming "Chicago" with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger, and explained what happened to her hotly-anticipated Broadway debut as Velma Kelly. Mýa is, without doubt, one of the first 2000s pop/R&B stars we saw deftly navigate her way into a successful career as an independent artist. Joel and David chat with her about the ill-fated "Liberation" project that led to an unexpected but freeing new chapter in her career, and her gorgeous new single 'Space & Time' - the healing bop we all need in 2020. There's so much more to this inspiring and brilliant artist than meets the eye! We hope you too will fall head over heels with Mýa after listening to this episode.
