Mya just released her first music project under her new label Planet 9, titled “Beauty and the Street Mixtape Vol. 1”. It has a lot of new material and she has collaborations with the likes of Bun B and Slim Thug. Now, I know you are say “Hey how does this fit into Soulified’s normal scope?” Well…. since a few artists are coming back on the scene after a long absence, I thought I would cover Mya’s return also. Mya really hasn’t been absent from the music scene, because she released “Sugar & Spice” last year in Japan. She left Motown and worked with Manhattan Records to release that album.
After researching for this post, I found some information about Mya. That she is really business minded and has some great reasons for leaving Motown. A lot of it is detailed in a great interview from RollingOut.
