BAM am I glad I did.
RaRamon
She released a mixtape, "Beauty and the Streets" last year, so that makes K.I.S.S. her first proper album release stateside in nearly a decade.
Cory T. Shaeffer
These songs are amazing to listen to when you are bored.

After scoring some huge hits in the late 90's and early 2000's, Mya has sort of slipped off the radar in the US. Her last proper full length album was 2003's excellent "Moodring." Before that, she was known for the smash hits "My Case of the Ex" and "Lady Marmalade."

Mya has been actively recording albums in Japan during the last few years. 2007's "Liberation" was perhaps her best album to date, and it was followed up by 2008's "Sugar & Spice." She released a mixtape, "Beauty and the Streets" last year, so that makes K.I.S.S. her first proper album release stateside in nearly a decade.

The album showcases Mya's sassy side (as in "Earthquake" and "Somebody Come Get This B****") as well as her sensual side ("Love Me Some Him"). But the best thing about this album are the pop songs. "Fabulous Life" is every bit as fun and catchy as Katy Perry's "California Gurls," and "Mess Up My Hair" is a thumping, melodic pop masterpiece. Sadly, she left off the breathtaking ballad "Running Back," which featured Iyaz, and was included on the Japanese version of K.I.S.S. If you are a diehard fan, purchase that song for download as well, you'll be glad you did.

Mya should be a superstar. It is a crime that these songs can't seem to catch fire on the charts, because Mya is one of the most underrated singers out there today. She has paid her dues and this deserves to be a hit. K.I.S.S. incorporates the best qualities of Mya, and for the first time she effectively maximizes all of her talents, integrates her guest artists well throughout, and comes up with a set of catchy songs that will stick in your head. Great stuff from an artist who many people may have forgotten about.

This release is unavailable in the US on CD, unfortunately. I purchased the MP3 download, but I still buy CDs to rip lossless. I ordered this release on CD from Japan. The Japanese CD actually excludes seven tracks availble on MP3. Also, the CD contains four tracks not available on the download. You get more music with the MP3 download, but you will be missing four songs from the CD. I have both, so I'm good :-)

I didn't even know she still made music. I streamed it on Zune music pass and this is really a pretty nice release. I hope people give it a chance or a listen on one of the streaming music sites, I think u may be pleasantly surprised.

Mya goes harder on second independent release than she ever did on any of her major label releases. The album which was originally released in Japan features elements of R&B, reggae, pop and J-pop. The album opens with the title track "K.I.S.S." which has a killer beat and features some of her strongest vocals that she has ever put out. The next two tracks "Review Mirror" which features Sean Paul and "Take Him Out" featuring Spice both has a reggae style but its the latter of the two with its fiery delivery and thumping beat that wins that battle. Following those is the J-pop influenced "Fabulous Life" which is a every bit as fabulous as the title suggests. The lead American single the Trina assisted "Earthquake" is an awesome club ready song that was only taking off the Japanese version because of the recent earthquake. Next up is "Mess Up My Hair" which features an awesome stuttering drum machine backing track is a killer dance (the version with Beenie Man is also wicked t0o). The tracks "Fugitive of Love", "Can I", "Love Me Some You" feat. Marques Houston and "Mr. Incredible" kind of loses some the dance floor momentum of the previous tracks but they are in no means bad tracks. The seam doesn't pick back up until the 14th track "Evolve" which also features a thumping J-pop arrangement, and is followed by the poppy "Its My Birthday", and then the very gay, catty, and clubby house track "Somebody Come Get This Bitch" which is one of the best tracks on here. The album then closes on a mellow note with the solo version of "Love Me Some You". My favorites are Somebody Come Get This Bitch, K.I.S.S., Fabulous Life, Evolve, Take Him Out, and Mess Up My Hair.

Love it especially tracks 8 9 10 14 and 16 but the listed track 19 is missing . that sucked being that this song actually charted in some countries and somehow the manufacturer left it off the physical copy (cd) but good to hear her since the beauty and the streets mixtape of 2009 that honestly sounded low budget. Guys im a huge fan since 98 but it is what is. Good come back Mya. I wish a major label would pick you up so we could hear you on the radio again.

I have been a fan of Mya's since "It's All About Me" with Sisqo. She has an amazing voice and definitely can tell a great story. This is, by far, her best album since 'Fear of Flying'. It has upbeat songs as well as great ballads. My favorite song on the album is "Rear View Mirror". If you want to hear real singing and not an artist struggling to reach the younger audience, then this is definitely a great purchase!

Mya's "K.I.S.S." album has finally been released in the US (12/20/11)! First released in Japan back in April of 2011, K.I.S.S. (Keep It Sexy & Simple) is finally available to fans stateside patiently waiting for new material from the R&B/Pop sensation, Miss Mya! Although the Japan version was available for import to fans worldwide, this newly released, deluxe version has a slightly re-worked track list than the original. With a few additions and replacements, K.I.S.S. offers a variety of sounds to go with the mood (not to get confused with Mya's 2003 album "Moodring"). Standout tracks: K.I.S.S (title track), Take Him Out (feat. Spice), Mess Up My Hair, Fugitive of Love, Love Comes, Love Goes, and Evolve.
