19. Mya, "It's All About Me"
A psychedelic R&B slow jam from Mya, the D.C.
ingenue who spent her 19th summer in the Top Ten with her very first
single, "It's All About Me." Mya sings uncannily like Prince's
feminine alter ego Camille, her voice lost in dubbed-out reverb, with help from
Dru Hill's Sisqo (pre–"Thong Song") and producer Darryl Pearson, as
she kicks her groovy sexual politics: "Tonight it's about me, me, me, me,
me/Forget about you, you, you, you, you."
