What is Mya’s net worth?
Mýa is an American philanthropist, R&B singer-songwriter, model, activist, dancer, and record producer who has a net worth of $4 million. She made her earnings from Interscope Records, where she worked as a solo recording artist.
In the late 1990s, she attained particular acclaim. The Old Dirty Bastard/Pras song “Getty Supastar,” is considered to be her most popular tune.
Mya Marie Harrison was birthed in Washington D.C, on the 10th of October 19789. She was the youngest of three children, whose parents were Theresa, an accountant, and Sherman, a musician, and vocalist.
Beginning at the age of two and four, respectively, she began taking ballet and tap lessons. In elementary school, she also started taking violin and dancing lessons.
Savion Glover, one of the most well-known tap dancers in the nation, taught Mya how to dance, and at the age of 12, he picked her for a solo performance at the Kennedy Center.
When Mya was 15, she decided to pursue a career in music seriously. She started taking voice lessons and eventually recorded a demo tape.
Haqq Islam, CEO of University Music, expressed interest after hearing about the demo tape her father had circulated.
At age 16, Mya received an early diploma from Greenbelt, Maryland’s Eleanor Roosevelt High School. She later attended a few classes at the University of Maryland College Park, but ultimately her attention was drawn to the recording studio.
Mya Career in the Entertainment Industry
Mya recorded her debut album two years after signing with the major label Interscope Records. The lead singer of the R&B duo Dru Hill and Sisqo collaborated on the gold-certified top ten single “It’s All About Me” from her self-titled debut album, which was released in April 1998 and sold over two million copies.
Together with Silkk Tha Shocker, this popular album featured contributions from Missy Elliott, Babyface, Diane Warren, Dru Hill, and Darryl Pearson.
“It’s All About Me,” “Movin’ On,” and “My First Night with You” were among the album’s major singles. Mya received a number of honors for her debut album, including two Soul Train Music Award nominations.
Mya launched her acting career in 1999 when she appeared in the critically panned criminal thriller “In Too Deep” as the lead.
She started working on the album “Fear of Flying” later that year, which was based on the same-named book by Erica Jong.
Writing, recording, producing, mixing, and mastering were only a few of the aspects of the album’s creation in which Mya played a significant role.
The song’s Billboard chart debut position was No. 15 in April 2000. A multiplatinum smash, it was nominated for multiple awards.
Mya’s next major endeavor was a version of the 1975 classic song “Lady Marmalade” alongside Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, and Pink. A global hit, the song spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at No. 15 in over 15 other nations.
The 2001 MTV Video Music Awards gave it six nominations, and it took home two of them. The group performed at the 2002 Grammy Awards, where they took home a for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.
She started to explore acting more after the popularity of these two roles, which led to her landing a supporting part in the critically acclaimed film “Chicago” in 2002.
“Moodring,” the third studio album by Maya, was made available in July 2003. A top 20 smash on the Billboard Hot 100, “My Love Is Like…Wo,” the first song, was produced by Missy Elliot. With a gold certification, the album spent 18 weeks at the top of the American charts.
The dance musical remakes of “Shall We Dance?” and “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights” each featured two minor roles for Mya. She made an appearance in “Cursed,” a 2005 Wes Craven horror movie.
Although the movie did poorly at the box office, Mya received a nomination for Best Frightened Performance at the MTV Movie Awards.
Later, she co-starred in the movie “The Heart Specialist” and appeared in “NCIS” as a guest star during season two.
Mya began work on her upcoming album after signing a new recording deal with Universal Motown. The top singles had poor sales and were deemed a failure on the market.
It was delayed until 2007. “Cover,” a drama-thriller movie from 2008, featured Mya as a co-star. “Love for Sale” was the title of her subsequent movie.
In 2009, “Sugar & Spice,” Mya’s fifth album, was made available. She appeared as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars” in the same year and placed second.
She also had a small part in the film “Bottleworld” that year. Mya contributed to and made an appearance on the 2011 song “Love is the Answer” by French DJ Cedric Gervais.
Nevertheless, in April 2011, she released her sixth album, “K.I.S.S (Keep It Sexy & Simple),” which featured the lead hit, “Fabulous Life,” as a solo single. Mya’s seventh studio album, “Smoove Jones,” was released on February 14, 2016, following the release of a number of EPs in 2014.
The album was a critical triumph and deserving of a Grammy award for Best R&B Album when it arrived at No. 30 on the Billboard chart. “TKO, (The Knock Out),” Mya’s ninth album, was released two years later.
Two singles by Mya—”You Got Me, Part II” and “Space & Time”—were released in the spring of 2020.
Mya actively endorses PETA’s vegan lifestyle projects because she is a vegan. The Mya Arts & Tech Foundation, her own organization, was founded by her in 2005.
Through educating impoverished youngsters in the arts and in technology, the Foundation aims to “provide growth and opportunity.”
She has worked on songs for many philanthropic organizations over the years with a range of artists, and she has hosted and performed at numerous charity events.
