20 years after introducing herself with a platinum debut studio album back in 1998, Mýa recently released her new album T.K.O. (The Knock Out), featuring standout track "Damage."
"'Damage' is about taking risks, stepping into new territory regardless of the outcome," Mýa says of the song. "This thing we call love has always been tricky and as beautiful as it can be, we can potentially lose ourselves in it. With the good often comes the bad. That's life and it's scary. But the song expresses that with an intense passion and yearning, I’m willing to risk it all for that special one who sets my soul and desire on fire, despite the potential damage it may bring."
Now, she has shared an eye-catching music video for "Damage," which was directed, produced, choreographed, edited, and styled by Galen Hooks—a choreographer known for her work with artists like Rihanna, Usher, Britney Spears, and Justin Bieber.
Against minimalist industrial backdrops, Hooks' powerful choreography plays up the defiant nature of the song as Mýa delivers a dynamic performance.
