A lot has happened since our last interview with Grammy Award winning recording artist, MÝA a few months ago. Yesterday, she released her highly-anticipated, follow up to February’s With Love EP with a second EP of 6 brand new songs, SWEET XVI!

Mya celebrated the 16th anniversary of the release of her self-titled debut album, Mýa, on April 21, 2014 with the release of Sweet XVI, her latest musical offering which she executive produced along with Grammy Award Winning Producer, Yonni.  This EP is laced with the singer’s signature sexy sound, offering a few surprises along the way.  One of those surprises being her collaboration with GRAMMY award winning artist/songwriterEric Bellinger featured on her lead teaser titled “Same Page.”  This new project also features new talent on the testimonial record “Unbreakable” introducing rapper Mike Check, produced by Antione Hart.

2014 has certainly been Sweet for the “My Love is Like Whoa…” singer.  From signing with talent agency ICM, releasing her “With Love” EP, which received much acclaim from outlets such as  THE LOS ANGELES TIMES and BILLBOARD,  to her involvement with “Ready for Hillary”, run by Obama & Clinton Campaign Staffers encouraging Hillary Clinton to run for President in 2016, and the recording of her 9th studio album! Mya certainly shows no signs of slowing down and  the uptempo EP is a change of pace & the perfect vibe for Spring, following the strictly smooth “grown & sexy”  “With Love” EP. SWEET XVI is currently an exclusive digital release but a physical CD combining both EPs and bonus tracks for her fans will be made available, classifying this as her 8th studio album, exclusively available on www.myamya.com and all tour stops.  It’s no wonder why she was named one of Billboard‘s Hot 100 Artists of the Decade.  Embracing technology, Mya partnered with mobile technology app NOTORIOUS so fans can actually text her anytime they want via the new app!  More info on www.Notorious.im, available in the iTunes store. In addition, she also recently partnered with ground breaking merchandising company CapThat. (www.capthat.com)

Showcasing her unique vocal range, production and songwriting skills the SWEET XVI EP is the epitome of both an independent woman and independent artist who is driven, powerful and business savvy.  Sweet XVI is the catalyst that not only celebrates MÝA’s incredible journey so far, but marks the beginning of a new path as she reinvents her career and gears up to tour and work on her quintessential 9th studio project.
