COVER STORY | Since her debut in 1998, Mýa Harrison has declared that “It’s All About Me”. Within a career that spans 23 years, the Grammy-nominated mezzo-soprano has released 9 albums and 3 EP’s with a collection of self-affirming singles, collaborations, and choreography that positioned her as one of R&B’s most underrated young divas. In 2008, the delicate-toned chanteuse took control of her career by founding Planet 9, an independent label that has allowed her to release 13 self-produced, self-engineered, and self-funded studio projects, proving that no one would look out for Mýa like Mýa.
The singer took the ultimate vow of self-love, revealing that she has been in a sologamous relationship; married, quite happily, to herself since 2013. A rare glimpse into her private life, she joins a heightening tradition of women who are choosing themselves over the dependency of an external counterpoint.
“It was all about self-care, self-love and getting myself back after a toxic relationship. Last year, I renewed my vows stepping into a new year. It’s not about anything like ‘all men are bad’ or anything like that. It’s really about becoming your best self and making sure that you’re leveling up in all aspects of your life.”
In celebration of Mýa’s commitment, Zumble looks back at the top moments of her catalog.
