''Moodring'' is the third studio album by American singer Mýa, released in the United States on July 22, 2003 by Interscope Records. Her final album with the record company, and her final album released in the U.S. to date. It featured production several producers and songwriters, including Ron Fair, Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Rockwilder, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and Knobody among others.

Released two years after the number-one success of "Lady Marmalade", the album debuted at number three on the ''Billboard'' 200 chart but had a short run on the charts, resulting into medicore domestic sales of 597,000 copies and a gold certification by the RIAA. Outside the states, ''Moodring'' scored minor success, missing the top forty on the majority of the charts it appeared on except for Canada. The critical response to ''Moodring'' was generally positive, garnering Mýa her strongest reception yet, with Allmusic praising Mýa for coming up with her best and most varied set of songs yet. At the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards "My Love Is Like...Wo" earned Mýa two nominations for Best Dance Video and Best Choreography.

While lead single "My Love Is Like...Wo" reached the top twenty in the United States and top forty elsewhere in countries like the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland, the album's second single "Fallen" failed to duplicate its success. In late 2005, after five years with the company Mýa left Interscope Records due to "creative differences", making ''Moodring'' her last studio album on the label. - Wikipedia
