Mya Unleashes Amazing New R&B Project ‘Smoove Jones’
‘Lady Marmalade’, ‘Ghetto Superstar’, ‘Case Of The Ex’ - we all know Mya from these classic tracks and with her latest project, the Grammy Award winning R&B songstress is very much back to her epic best.
Set out like a radio show, ‘Smoove Jones’ is twelve tracks of unfiltered and uncompromising R&B brilliance. It weaves between contemporary sounds on tracks like ‘Spoil Me’, and classic, almost throwback vibes on songs such as ‘Welcome To My World’ and ‘One Man Woman’, which makes for a really engaging playlist. Having released her eponymous debut back in 1998, you could be forgiven for thinking that the vocal prowess and spark that we’ve come to expect from Mya over the years may be dwindling, but she demonstrates that she’s still very much got it and both ‘Coolin’ and ‘Phya’ are tracks that showcase these talents to the max.
If you thought you had an R&B shaped hole missing in your life, think again because this project is more than enough to satisfy any cravings you may have had for that real, pure R&B goodness. An amazing comeback from a respected scene favourite - what’s not to love?
