Luh Ya

Album: Single release only (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This tender single is dedicated to Marsha Ambrosius' baby daughter Nyla. "[It's] amazingly, beautifully, terrifying and gratifying all at the same time," she said to VH1 of becoming a mom. "You have a new life that came into this world out of love, me and her father wanting this to be a reality, and now that she's here it's like, oh my goodness. Wow!"

    "We're parents. I'm a mother. I gave birth to a child. And it's so overwhelming. It's like starting life all over again," Marsha continued. "I get to watch all of my Disney movies all over again through new eyes. My ABC's and 1-2-3's and all of these melodies that my kid doesn't know yet. If her dad is singing to her, or dancing, or playing with her it's all brand new to this human being, this new human being that's ours, so that by itself is just so beautiful."
