Mýa yielded three successful singles, including her debut single, "It's All About Me" featuring fellow R&B singer Sisqó, which became a top ten hit on the US Billboard Hot 100, as well as "Movin' On" and "My First Night with You." The album earned her several accolades which included two Soul Train Music Award nominations for Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist and Best R&B/Soul Album – Female and a NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding New Artist.
In addition to her solo work, Mýa, along with Blackstreet, Blinky Blink, and Mase, was featured on "Take Me There" from the soundtrack of the animated feature film The Rugrats Movie (1998).
After signing with major label Interscope Records, Mýa spent the next two years recording her debut studio album.
The second single, mid tempo track "Fallen," failed to duplicate the same success, but reached the top forty on Billboard In 2004, she had two small roles in the dance musical Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights and romantic comedy-drama film Shall We Dance? In the films, she played a Latina lounge singer named Lola Martinez and the fiancée of a ballroom dancing student.
While Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, a re-imagining of the 1987 blockbuster Dirty Dancing, tanked at the box office, Shall We Dance?
The album displayed an array of different emotions exploring Mýa's playful and sexual side.
The bulk of Moodring was co-written and co-produced by Mýa and influenced by different subjects and music stylings including pop rock, soul, hip-hop, R&B, and quiet storm.
Signed in 1996 with Interscope Records, she released her eponymous debut album in April 1998. Beginning in 2014, she released a trio of R&B-rooted EPs, With Love (2014), Sweet XVI (2014), and Love Elevation Suite (2015).
