Mýa recently made an appearance on DJ Cassidy’s “Pass The Mic” series for the 2021 BET Awards, joining dancehall legend Beenie Man for a rendition of their classic song “Girls Dem Sugar.” She has now released her first new tune in many moons, “Worth It,” introducing a new persona in the process: Mýa Lan$ky.
Produced by 1500 Or Nothin producer MYGUYMARS, the single features the songstress putting the falsetto to the left for some raps. “My independent journey has placed me on a path to becoming a better version of myself, redefining success and happiness that does not always coincide with the world’s definition,” Mýa says. “So when people hear ‘Worth It,’ I want them to feel strength and courage to leave any situation that does not enhance their lives. I want them to feel and adopt the fight and faith of a warrior which has assisted me in pushing through every challenge, and that spiritual component that’s kept me centered and grounded in such a chaotic world, in hopes for them to be inspired enough to apply it to their own lives by constantly pushing, learning, growing, and searching for their own voices and paths of resonance, to ultimately take risks and bet on themselves, so they too can reach their highest selves and ultimately experience peace of mind and a quality life. When they see me, I want them to see what committing to yourself looks like with the clarity that you can get better with time when you pour love into every aspect of yourself. It’s when we get better that we can help others. That’s true wealth and it is indeed worth it.”
A lyric video for the track has been released; that can seen below.
