Mýa thanks the Academy, prior to 'Smoove Jones' receiving a Grammy nomination for 'Best R&B Album.'
Unfortunately, the mainstream media only knew Mýa as the chick that featured on the Grammy Award-winning 'Lady Marmalade,' alongside Pink and Christina Aguilera. Finally, she can now say she got her nod completely on her own merits. Out of all her independent releases, 'Smoove Jones' is definitely (if not), one of Mýa's strongest bodies of work. I want her to win so badly, because she's put in the work and hustle, and I'm hoping she can walk away with it.
It's taken a moment for me to process this all and still it's so surreal. As some of you know, 9 years ago, I went independent and started my own label, with #SmooveJones being the 8th independent project on Planet9, so this #Grammy nomination is not only an honor but extremely special. Thank you @recordingacademy and thank you to every musician, songwriter, producer, engineer, team member and fan a part of this project & indie journey. You are so appreciated. One month from today, join me in spirit & tune into the #Grammys on #CBS #Sunday #February 12, 2017. #HighVibrations to you all ~ #Mya #Planet9 #Music is #Life #BlessUp 🎼🎶❤️💋
