Mya Talks to Billboard’s Keith Caulfield About Topping the Hot 100

2011 was the year that Billboard celebrated the 1000th No. 1 song on the Hot 100. As we look back on this year in music, we’re celebrating that milestone with a month-long series of videos — one for each day of December — chatting with 31 of the hitmakers who rocketed to the top of the chart since its inception in 1958.  SEE THE FULL CHART HERE.

On day 25 of our 1,000 Hot No. 1s video series, we move from yesterday’s pair of Shaggy charttoppers — “Angel” and “It Isn’t Me” — to a blockbuster remake as we chat with Mya about her No. 1 alongside Christina Aguilera, Pink, and Lil’ Kim, “Lady Marmalade.” “[It] was an extraordinary collaboration,” Mya says of the hit, which spent five weeks at the top beginning June 2, 2001 <> . “It was refreshing to work with multiple ladies at once.”

The ladies’ No. 1, which was the lead hit from the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack, knocked Janet Jackson’s “All For You” out of the top slot.
