Originally released on 25 April 2000, Fear of Flying saw the 21-year-old singer join up with a top-shelf team of R&B talent and producers including Swizz Beatz, Rodney Jerkins, Wyclef, Robin Thicke, Tricky Stewart, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, Jadakiss and more.

At the time of release, expectations were running high. Mýa proved herself to be a teenaged phenom on her 1998, self-titled debut. She’d already collaborated with some of the hottest artists in the game, including Sisqo (‘It’s All About Me’) and Silkk Tha Shocker (‘Movin’ On’), and blew up on Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s ‘Ghetto Superstar’, off the Bullworth soundtrack.

Along with empowering anthems ‘Fear of Flying’, ‘Free’ and the Jadakiss-assisted ‘Best Of Me’, was the swaggering ‘Case Of The Ex (Whatcha Gonna Do)’, the album’s true runaway hit that peaked at the No.2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and earned Mýa the second Top 10 single of her young career.

“Mýa proves she can hold her own in this competitive game of young female musicians. She’s well on her way to the class of elite divas,” wrote The Source upon release.

Six studio albums later, Fear of Flying remains a classic and a reminder of R&B’s domination of pop charts at the turn of the millennium

To mark the occasion, Mýa will be taking over Urban Legends’ Instagram Live to talk all things Fear of Flying. Tune in at 3:00 pm PST/ 6:00 pm EST.
