Hot Shots: Michelle Williams Shines in ‘Michigan Avenue’ / Reveals Album Title

Published: Friday 28th Jun 2013 by Rashad

Feast your eyes on ‘If We Had Your Eyes’ hitmaker Michelle Williams and the snaps lifted from her recent appearance in ‘Michigan Avenue’.

Upping the ante yet again on her fashion game, Williams hits another home run in the publication whose feature story sees her interviewed by ‘Nobody Supposed To Be Here’ singer Deborah Cox.  Inside, the powerhouse vocalists chat about Michelle’s solo rise to fame, her fourth solo LP, and so much more.

In addition to the tell all interview, Williams also reveals the title of the follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2008 album ‘Unexpected’.  You can expect this and more after you tuck in below for the behind the scenes footage of the shoot and its final products:

Album Title:  ‘Journey To Freedom’

Via Michigan Avenue:

Read excerpts of the two’s interview below:

DC: How does your upcoming album, Journey to Freedom, focus on your life?
MW: People identify when your music comes from the heart and speaks truth. There was a time last year when I didn’t know if I could record and finish one song, and it took me a while to really be comfortable and allow other people to help me with my thoughts. We had some incredible writers who were able to help me with my own situation, and it really helped deliver me out of some of those dark moments.

DC: How have Beyoncé and Kelly influenced you as a solo artist?
MW: Being in the group that long—with even Bey and Kelly, being in the group that long for them—just rubs off on you. The friendships continue to inspire, but the genres are so different now. I can’t wait for them to hear [my new album], so I can be like “Okay, what do y’all think?” They’re like, “Girl, do this or do that.” But we really try to keep the solo stuff separate.

    She looks great, nice cover shot. It’s great seeing all the destiny child members still on their grind. I love the fact that neither of three bandmates didn’t disappear into oblivion away from the public eyes unlike other bands/mates, congrats Michelle.

  13. Angela Wesley June 28, 2013

    Michelle looks great. I liked all of the outfits
    she was wearing.I haven’t listen to her new single
    yet, but I am going to do it. Why is it when
    Michelle does a project none of the interviewers
    ask her about Beyonce. But when Kelly has a
    project Beyonce name is constantly mention.
    That is so strange to me.

  14. grins June 28, 2013

    Wow a talent like Deborah C** is reduced to doing interviews? Life’s not fair.
    Michelle looks nice..
    Without Matthew backing her this go round, I’m not sure how well she will do though.
    Matthew did wonders for her gospel wise!

    • Matthew Charlery Smith June 29, 2013

      What are these wonders? One video for “Heart to Yours” and no videos for “Do You Know”? No awards, certifications or charting singles? With her backing she should have been matching Mary Mary or Israel, but no, the Gospel community and Church in particular struggle with her double standards.

  15. Lovebird June 28, 2013

    She looks great. Love it Michelle.

  16. Jonathan Gardner June 28, 2013

    Beautiful shoot and I LOVE the album title!

    Michelle stays WINNING! People acting like she’s only just starting being great. Have any of you heard Unexpected or seen that photoshoot?

    Her first two albums were great as well.

    Get into her new single #IfWeHadYourEyes
