Mya – ‘Paradise’ Video

Published: Tuesday 18th Nov 2008 by Sam

After a calling it a day with the US labels (following the complete and utter mishandling of her last album ‘Liberation’), R&B songstress Mya has turned her attention to Japan. Now signed with Manhattan Records, the 29 year old is set to release her new LP ‘Sugar & Spice’ over there this December. The video for ‘Paradise’, the LP’s lead single, made its debut this week and what can I say other than…appalling. Cheap, uninspired, trashy…did I say cheap?

Hell, with £50.00 and Windows Movie Maker, I could have done a better job myself. Not a good look.

What do you think of the song/video?

    its cute…..corny but cute and she looks really pretty. I actually kinda like the song,i heard it was a song for overseas and it wasnt supposed to appeal to americans

    Looks like she paid for it herself…. & the song has no thrills!

    Sad, what a shame…

    I still love my 'Fear without Flying' album!!!

    Now yall know yall wrong for callin that video cheap! Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' was shot in front of ONE background in black & white. This is damn near the same minus the back up dancers and with less dance moves. Smh thats a damn shame that yall would bash it like that.

    Still a beautiful girl with an amazing body and great singing voice.

    …but…that was so low budget…Why do I say low budget? there was no serious angle shots, the tub was dirty, and it was like she used a tripod.

    That being said, still thinks she is great and I wish the best.

    What was that? This can’t be a real video. From the fish tank she was swimming in, to the “like two animals in a jungle making love” lyrics (leave that to Kellz), to the flailing arms (Mya started out as a dancer – choreography?). With that said, she looked pretty.

    You can’t compare the two. The point of Beyonce’s video was Fosse inspired. Also, the focus was to be the dancing.

    This is just…I don’t know what it is…

    I don’t know what planet this video would be hot on….Certainly not Earth!!

    Poor Mya…literally and figuratively.

    That was the cheapest s**t I’ve seen in a long time. They could have at least filmed on a beach. This is sad, I was actually rooting for Mya, but….

    I’m gonna need Mya to come harder than this. . .”Liberation” was my s***. . .its still on heavy rotation. Is it me, or does it seem like ppl make the best albums w/ a broken heart??. . .hmm. . .food for thought.

    Two words LOW BUDGET!!!!
    And I hate that for Mya, I like her. 🙁

    Okay . . . if Paradise is her, then I get it . . . but if Paradise is an island, we should have at least seen an island. Her body is banging but the song needs a little umph to it . . . I’m not a Mya fan, but I did love her on Girls Dem Suga with Beanie Man.

    I love the video and I love mya. She looks great, and I am a woman. She is absolutely gorgeous, and her body is so s***. I like the song because it is light hearted and I love the feel of the song. It just makes me want to sing. I don’t know, I live in the U.S., and I like it!

    Well she looks very pretty. I can’t say that I like the song or video. But I hope that she can get some momentum. I’m not going to bash her, because at least she’s trying. She can sing and of course she dance her ass off. She just needs the right production.
