2017 has already brought some significant milestones for Mya. This year marks the singer’s 19th year in the music business, a milestone that many don’t get to reach. As well, while she’s already won a GRAMMY for her part in the 2002 mega-hit remake of “Lady Marmalade” and she’s been nominated for her role in 1999’s “Ghetto Superstar,” she got her first solo GRAMMY nod for her 2016 album Smoove Jones. Looks like you can’t keep Mya down. To celebrate the milestones, she’s treating us to a sensual video for her latest single, “Coolin’.”
The song is an exhilarating joint that finds Mya singing in breathless coos and lusty sighs about an affair that brings the heat even in the midst of winter. To illustrate the intimate feel of the song, she goes with a black-and-white aesthetic that adds an air of sophistication and seduction to the proceedings. Mya appears draped in sheer fabrics, submerged in water lying among disheveled sheets, exuding a timeless less-is-more sexuality that’s exceedingly rare in this age. And though she does have a male co-star for a few scenes on the beach, she rightfully makes the decision to not reveal his face, making us focus all our attention on her.
Peep Mya’s “Coolin'” below and, if you haven’t already, make sure you give her GRAMMY-nominated Smoove Jones a spin.
