Beauty In The Streets (Explicit)
Released: Sep 2009
Label: Young Empire Records
Mya outlasted her early competitors, only to contend with the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna ten years in -- and without ever really establishing a signature sound. It's enough to give a girl an identity crisis, which is what Beauty sounds like. Her first album in six years tries on several styles: hard-talking bad girl ("Show Me Something"), cooing kitten ("Boss"), girl power slow jam ("$ Can't Buy My Love"). While none quite work (the super sexed-up stuff is a particularly odd fit for this sexy, but sweet, voice), Mya approaches each with her dancer's grace, never falling on her face.
