Last week, images of Mya looking beautiful in a white wedding dress had us thinking that she was now a Mrs. That, however, isn’t necessarily not the case. It turns out the images were from the set of her video for the song “The Truth,” a lovely ballad dedicated to a lover who’s held her down from the start.
The clip opens on a gorgeous beach as the waves roll in before we see a gorgeous and blonde Mya as she prepares for her big day. She sings the love song to strains of guitar as the scene switches back to the beach, only Mya is dressed in a black dress and veil. While things look very wedding-ish, it’s not clear what’s happening until we see Mya again, this time dressed in a gorgeous white dress and wavy dark brown tresses. It’s then that we realize that Mya is getting married…to herself.
While we feel a little foolish that the singer was able to pull the wool over our eyes, we’re kind of glad that it was in service of this particular song. Whether you take it to be about loving yourself or the longtime love of your life, the track works pretty well (which is perhaps due to the fact that the track is co-written by Mya and Lucky Daye).
Check out Mya’s ultimate act of self-love when you press play.
