EDITORS’ NOTES

On her eighth studio album, Mýa asks the musical question, “Tell me, are you down for me?” The answer is a resounding yes. T.K.O. (The Knock Out) shows the R&B goddess pulling out all the tricks from her two decades in the mix. Mýa wraps her gorgeous voice around between-the-sheets funk, using playful metaphors (“Knock You Out”) and fun '90s R&B album devices like whispered intros and seductive voicemail messages. “Hey, beautiful. It’s me, returning your call.” Remember those?
