Mya Learns To “Fly” With Wyclef’s Help

R&B songstress Mya will return to record stores this month with “Fear Of Flying,” the follow-up to her 1998 self-titled debut.

“Fear Of Flying” sees Mya teaming up with several top producers, including She’kspere, Dent, Swizz Beatz (who was behind the board for the album’s first single, “Best Of Me,” featuring Jadakiss of The LOX), and several others, including her pal Wyclef Jean.

The two first worked together on the Pras hit “Ghetto Supastar,” which featured both Mya and Jean as well as Ol’ Dirty Bastard. When it came time to record “Fear Of Flying,” Mya called upon Wyclef to produce two tracks, “Pussycats” and “Lie Detector.”

“He’s there 24-7 in the studio with you, and he loves creative input,” Mya told the MTV Radio Network of Wyclef. “He’s willing to change things. He’s not out for a buck.
He’s there to make
the best or bring out the best in the artist, which is great.” [RealAudio]

Mya takes a bit of a reggae turn on the ‘Clef-produced “Lie Detector,” a song that features Jamaican reggae superstar Beenie Man. “Fear Of Flying,” which also features a guest appearance from TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, hits stores on April 25.
