submeat's top 100 tracks of 2003: songs to download and love

#58 "My Love Is Like...Wo," Mya featuring Missy Elliott (Interscope)

I wish someone would explain to me why Mya didn't become a blistering superstar last year. She's got the looks, she's got the chops, she's got the attitude, she's got the SAG Award (for Best Ensemble, for Chicago) (!), and girlfriend can dance her ass off. Actually, I think there are two reasons that, coming off her big-screen bow, she didn't go into orbit: 1) Interscope did a mightily piss-poor job marketing Moodring, and 2) For whatever reason, Mya's still not getting the best songs. Follow-up "Fallen" (which barely missed my top 100) is one, and this most certainly is - maybe a collaborative LP with Missy should be in order? Maybe it'll be her fourth album that does it, but either way, "Wo" establishes a new high-water mark for her (musical) career, and allows us to dream of what can be for one of Baltimore's finest.
