Mya Shoots Video For 'Best Of Me' Remix

Yahoo! Music, Jul 30, 2000 10:00 am PDT
(7/30/00, 10 a.m. ET) - R&B; songstress Mya was in Malibu recently shooting the video for the remix of her hit song "Best of Me." and told LAUNCH about the song's message.

"The song talks about thinking about consequences before you make a decision, especially decisions made when you're in a situation of the heat of the moment," she explained, "when passion and infatuation and seduction and all these things are taking place, and you're actually liking it. However, as a female, things do happen to you that you must carry on after the fact, so you're trying to weigh the consequences and make a decision based on what you know, and you may not know much about this person. It's just about setting standards for yourself and what you want."

The original version of "Best Of Me" featured Jadakiss of the Lox and is currently Number 97 on the Billboard Hot 100 after 17 weeks. The remix features the vocals of Jay-Z, who was on hand for the Hype Williams-directed video.

The remix will be the first single from the forthcoming album DJ Clue Presents The Hard Knock Life Tour Backstage, which is due out August 29. DJ Clue also appears in the "Best Of Me" video, and his new album collection is his second offering on Rockafella Records; his previous set, The Professional, has been certified gold. T-Boz of TLC, Beanie Sigel, Amil, the Cash Money Millionaires, and Capone-N-Noreaga are among the many other guests who appear on DJ Clue Presents The Hard Knock Life Tour Backstage.

Mya's current album, Fear of Flying, has been certified gold and is currently Number 109 on the Billboard 200 after 13 weeks; the set peaked at Number 15.
