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 :-)

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.

I've been a fan of MYA for years. i heard music that she's release in JAPAN. I know today she has her own independent label. PLANET 9. Mya has always been one of my favorite artist. Its so amazing to see her work so hard to released this U.S. album for her fans right before Christmas. Mya has a large fan base who has respected her work for years and have been waiting patiently for this album. MYA is probably one of the most underrated artist who the industry have kind of few asleep on. but not most R&B fans who know that MYA is still EVOLVING AS A ARTIST ... After downloading and listening to this album MYA definitely has evolved. This album has Club, Dance music and R&B which most of her fans love and know MYA for. Anyone who decides to buy this album will be pleasantly surprised how well this independent Mya album was put together. ITS a amazing album. for all you mya fans like me who have been waiting to add another MYA album to your collection of Mya albums....here it is! you want be disappointed. There alot of great hits on this album which makes it fun to listen to. i would say its probably one of the best mya albums to date because it has so many amazingly great songs on it. This U.S. album release was worth the wait and I'm so glad i was able to purchase it from AMAZON!!

So let me start of by saying that I am only a casual fan of Mya at the most. This album was in my recommendations section on my cloud player. I had liked a couple other Mya singles before, but not enough to ever want to buy an album. As I began hearing the samples I could not believe how much I was digging them. So with that said, on a whim, a bought the album ("It's my birthday" sold me).
BAM am I glad I did. Such a fun diverse album. It's rare that I could buy an album and not wanna skip a song on the first listen. The more I hear it the more I love it. It has something for everyone. I also agree that Mya is entirely too underrated :/ LETS CHANGE THAT, buy the album and support a clearly talented artist.

Stand out tracks for me:
*K.I.S.S.
*Take him out
*Fabulous life
*EARTHQUAKE(probably my favorite)definite booty twerking (look up the word "twerk" on youtube if ya don't know what that means) material!!
*Mess up my hair
*IT'S MY BIRTHDAY- Will be blasting this all day July 27th!!
*Someone come get this bitch- Unnaturally catchy!:)
