Exclusive: Michelle Williams Dishes On New Album, Destiny’s Child Reunion On ‘Say Yes’, & More

Ten years on from Destiny’s Child’s split, Michelle Williams proves her longevity with the hotly anticipated release of her fourth solo offering ‘Journey To Freedom’.

Aptly titled, the set fuses the Urban sound of Williams’ DC days with the Gospel grounding of her first two albums. The end result, she says, is an Urban Inspirational LP that truly represents the artist she is today.

That Grape Juice caught up with the vocal powerhouse as she geared up for her recent Essence Festival set.

Hit ‘PLAY’ above to watch the star dish on ‘Journey’, reuniting with Beyonce and Kelly Rowland on its current single ‘Say Yes’, her new show ‘Fix My Choir’, and more.

    I loved the interview! Heard the album preview on itunes and it sounds amaaazing! She is totally helping to assist in the healing of my life. I changed a lot of negative things in my life because of Michelles music. Ill always adore her. She has so much purpose through my eyes and many. She’s surely living her purpose through and through.

    She has to be the sweetest and most humble woman in the world. I just love her. Even though the ‘Do You Know’ album is one of my favorite albums, I think this will beat it. I wish you well beautiful.

    Sam. Where’s the long almost daily essays about what Kelly and Michelle do wrong with their careers and your “advice” on how they can sell more albums? Hypocrite

    Love Michelle but I just want one interview without the mention of DC or Beyonce to garner interest. You can do it on your own now Michelle. Beyonce doesn’t mention DC in her promo interviews anymore. Anyway, anyone catch Preachers Of LA special hosted by Michelle?

      I can totally understand your point of you and I agree. However I agreed with that back in the 1st and 2nd chapter of her career. Years have gone by and some people still say “who?”..
      Its usually interviewes that talk abo dc. When they talk to beyonce…they don’t talk about dc because they feel SHE WAS dc. So no need to bring it up.
      As of now…this is smart for Michelle. Because she’s now TOTALLY using the platform of destinys child full throttle. She deserves to..after always getting the shorter end of the stick a lot of the time.. this is a better strategy to reboot her career OVER having a too revealing reality show.

      So its like..hell..why not just get the help of my sisters instead of trying to come up with other ridiculous stunts. Bee and kelly owe her this…she has been a loyal friend to them. I became a fan of dc when Michelle joined. A lot of people did. I believe she has totally contributed to thr success of destinys child. She deserves to use the platform to re-introduce herself because itsbeem ten years. New kids are now learning who destinys child is. And it was great that beyonce, Kelly and Michelle herself could remind us of that ALL THE TIME.

      From my knowledge, her and Harmony Samuels. Her producer. Already have a few things up their sleeves once this era fizzes out.

    I Love Michelle Williams, shes a beautiful soul with a stunning voice and shes also an incredible songwriter! I have every album she has ever released and it feels like she has come Full circle with Journey To Freedom, no compromising of the music she wants to make and the topics she wants to talk about, i most certainly will be buying it

    A Journey To Freedom part II might not be such a bad idea as well.
