''Mýa'' is the self titled debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Mýa, released April 21, 1998 on Interscope Records. Recording sessions for the album took place from 1997 to 1998 at Silent Sound Studios in Atlanta, Georgia and at The Record Plant in Los Angeles, California. Production was primarily handled by Darryl "Day" Pearson with additional production from Daryl Simmons and Nokio the N-Tity and features collaboration with Sisqo, Missy Elliot, and Silkk The Shocker. The album tell tales "about relationship" - being young, throwing parties, getting hurt for the first time when you're my age; or the second time or third time as you grow up. It is about taking control, saying good-bye and moving on when you're done. It's about not being afraid. With love and relationships-related themes and lyrics, Mýa features a fusion of R&B with incorporated musical elements of pop and hip hop music.

Mýa spawned three singles including; the Top 5 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs hits It's All About Me featuring Sisqo and Movin' On featuring No Limit Records rapper Silkk The Shocker, and the Diane Warren-penned ballad My First Night with You.

Mýa debuted at number seventy-seven on ''Billboard 200'' chart on May 9, 1998 and later peaked at number twenty-nine on September 5, 1998. With help of its three singles, it spent 53 non-consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200 chart and earned a platinum certification from Recording Industry Association of America within the next six months on October 1, 1998. Her eponymous debut album received critical acclaim from music critics and garnered several accolades, including two Soul Train Music Award nominations. - Wikipedia
