Mýa Is ‘Totally Down’ For A 90s R&B Verzuz Battle

Mya Harrison was born on October 10, 1979. She is an American actress, dancer, producer, and songwriter who participated in BET’s Teen Summit when she was young. Mya released her first album in April 1998, two years after signing with Interscope Records. The talented singer is totally down for a 90s R&B battle on Verzuz. Read on to learn more about Mya’s potential appearance in the visual webcast series.

Mya’s Passion for R&B

Mya was one of the top R&B artists in the 1990s and early 2000s. She often talks about the old generation of Pop and R&B. She told @BBCSounds that she wouldn’t mind being part of a Verzuz battle for R&B during which she will showcase some of her best hits in her music career.

The Pop and R&B artist stated that she is always open to music battles. Most music tours and shows have been canceled globally due to the Coronavirus outbreak. During this period, Mya has been watching several Verzuz battles. But, they aren’t as aggressive as one would expect. Instead, they appear like friendly camaraderie between various artists. Mya discussed the timelessness and uniqueness of the 90s R&B. She listed a few new-generation R&B stars as some of her favorite artists.

Mya’s revelation that she is totally down for a 90s R&B battle on Verzuz is the latest entertainment news update that thrilled many R&B lovers. She revealed it during a BBC Radio Show interview a few days ago.

DJ Ace asked the songwriter why the 90s R&b still has a great influence on many people today. In response, Mya said that the old-generation R&B involved expressing one’s emotions through songs. Male and female artists didn’t shy off from being emotional while performing. So, the songs were more expressive compared to the current tracks. Mya added that the current R&B has a different culture unlike the one in the 90s. Even so, the genre has a presence in modern music.

Nowadays, R&B is less promoted in mainstream radio. Also, current R&B stars spend a lot of money making a track as the genre is considered Adult Contemporary. Still, there are R&B tours in different nations. The 90s R&B has many chord changes, according to Mya. At times, it might be difficult for a listener to describe how the music makes them feel. But, it wins their soul and heart.

Mya said that she is close to Nicole Bus, Lucky Daye, Summer Walker, Ari Lennox, Tone Smith, and Tori Kelly. Ace segued into the Memorial Day Verzuz battle between Beenie Man and Bounty Killer. He asked Mya whether she would take a turn in the webcast series. The American singer said that she appreciates how music enthusiasts treat battles as a celebration instead of a competition between different artists.

Mya has released many singles since she started her music career in 1996. “Ghetto Supastar” made Mya get her first Grammy Award nomination. It was among the top tracks in the Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group category. Many music enthusiasts have been watching different Verzuz battles since various countries started imposing lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mya declared her interest to take part in an R&B battle soon.
