Put some respect on her name please!
You can not talk about 90s and early 2000s R&B without mentioning Mya’s name and that’s a just factual.
The Grammy award winning singer recently announced during an interview with BBCSounds, that she’s not only a huge fan of Swizzy and Timbo’s #VERZUZTV battles but that she’d like a piece of the competition as well.
“I’m always open. Especially now, shows and touring has been cancelled until 2021. I watched quite a few Verzuz battles and it doesn’t feel like a battle at all, more like a friendly artist camaraderie and respect. I think it’s genius. Very entertaining, people are very excited about culture coming together, especially now. So, I’m totally down.”
The singer also shared about why she thinks ’90s R&B is so special and timeless while listing some of her favorite new-school R&B singers.
“The ’90s R&B is so special because of the percussion that always slapped, but also those chord changes that, once again, touch your soul. You may not be able to articulate the way it makes you feel but it makes you feel something.”
“Nicole Bus, she’s amazing. Tori Kelly, an amazing voice. Ari Lennox. Lucky Daye, who I actually worked with. H.E.R., Tone Stith, Summer Walker—a lot of them are musicians and it shows up in their vocal appeal or inflections and delivery. I love it.”
