Fear of Flying

With the release of her coming-of-age opus FEAR OF FLYING, Mya hopes to capitalize on the "Ghetto Supastar" caché she earned by singing on the Grammy-nominated hit from the BULWORTH soundtrack. On her sophomore album, Mya addresses many of the issues facing young women with a winning combination of confessional love songs such as "For the First Time" and girl anthems such as "Takin' Me Over," which features a spirited guest rap by TLC's Left Eye. On the album's up-tempo lead single, "The Best of Me" (featuring Jadakiss of the Lox) -- a modest tale of a young woman's refusal to be swept away by her passion -- Mya's self-assured vocals glide softly and sweetly over a danceable, Swizz Beatz-provided track. Sexually speaking, Mya, like the younger Janet Jackson, is willing to wait a while to get her kicks. But this songbird knows how to let loose -- as she does alongside Beenie Man on the reggae-tinged "Lie Detector," produced by Wyclef. Whether Mya's shaking her groove thing or crying her eyes out, FEAR OF FLYING serves as a sneak peak into the diary of the dream girl next door -- all grown-up.

Mya is totally the bomb you've got to admit it whoever you are. The album is as I good as I expected to be. She's so real, and she's not afraid to show it! That's why she is my favorite! You go girl!

What happened to sweet, innocent Mya? Where did she go? Wherever she went, she can stay there because this new Mya is even better. You go girl and tell it just like it is. This album is so good. My favorite song is Best of Me because it has Jadakiss on it. Case of the Ex is my next favorite song because it has a lot of truth to it. I know exactly where she's coming from on this song. Keep it up Mya. Hope the next one is as good as this one.

Mya is so awesome! I love her voice it¿s unique to me. I like Mya¿s sophomore album better then her first one. She has some great songs on there like ¿ Lie detector¿¿, `¿Case Of The Ex¿¿, `¿Best of Me¿¿, and `¿Fear Of Flying¿. Mya songs just have that beat that makes you want to just get up and dance, I love it. I love her last music video ¿Case Of The Ex¿ she had a great choreographer. Mya isn¿t afraid to be real, and sing what she feels, and I like that. I haven¿t yet seen her in concert but if I ever had the chance, I would go for it. Mya is getting stronger and stronger by each album she makes. I¿m hoping that one day I could be just like her. Making videos and people looking up to me, people listening to me songs for some kind of message or advice, like they do with hers. Her songs mean a lot to me and help me with different things that are going on in my life. I just want to take this time and thank Mya for everything she as done for me, and others out there in the world. THANK YOU MYA!! Much luv and keep doing your thing thing.

I think Mya is a very good artist.From the album Fear Of Flying,inspired my whole life.I feel like I felt what she felt.I've been through all the life stuggles.If I could I would just talk to her and tell her how much she's came up from her first album witch was really good too,but I've really stood up for this album.As an 18 year old female who loves music as much as I do.I would give up all my studio sessions if I could just meet her one time,because she changed my life in a way noone else could have.I'm a true fan and I love her.I hope she keeps up with all the hard work.5*'s -Joye Bell-
