My First Night with You by Mýa

Summary

"My First Night with You" is a ballad by American recording artist Mýa. It served as Harrison's third and final single from her self-titled debut studio album. The song was written by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Diane Warren. Originally featured on Deborah Cox's self-titled studio album (1995), Harrison re-recorded the track for her studio album. The album's version was produced by Daryl Simmons, allowing Harrison to put her own spin on the record, while the Ric Wake pop-produced version was marketed at pop and adult contemporary radio. The lyrics of the ballad speak of a non-sexual experience with a man.

The song received generally mixed reviews from contemporary music critics, some of whom noted the thinness of Harrison's voice. "My First Night with You" became a top forty hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B Singles chart, peaking at number twenty-eight. The single was not given a international release.

The song's accompanying music video was directed by G. Thomas Ferguson and University Music CEO Haqq Islam. It featured a cameo by Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs portraying Harrison's father.
