The 2000s were a great time for music. Unfortunately, many of the big singers from that time period literally disappeared not long after they first rose to fame. As we all know, the music industry is really fickle. It doesn’t really matter how big you get – you could still fall just as hard. Here are 10 singers who were pretty famous, but are now totally forgotten.

10. Mya

Mya made it big with hits like “Case of The Ex (Whatcha GonnaDo)” and “My Love Is Like… Wo;” however, after Fear of Flying and Moodring, none of her subsequent albums were able to garner the same level of success. Her fourth studio album Liberation, only received a download-release in Japan and she recorded two other albums – Sugar & Spice and K.I.S.S. (Keep It Sexy & Simple) – which were recorded exclusively for the Japanese music market. She’s dabbled outside of music and was last seen competing on the ninth season of Dancing with the Stars.

9. Shaggy

Shaggy is best known for his hits “It Wasn’t Me” and “Angel” from his album Hot Shot, which reached number one on the Billboard 200. Since “Angel,” however, he hasn’t had a song hit the top 40s. Although continues to release albums, some of which have been successful in Europe, he is no longer a success in the U.S.
