Real Housewives’ Star Porsha Williams Announces New Single ‘Flatline’

Published: Saturday 25th Jan 2014 by Sam

As Bravo‘s top rated show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta has redefined the possibilities  for not only its cast but for reality stars more broadly.

The latest name hoping to capitalize on the platform is current cast member Porsha Williams.

Newly divorced, it appears the former Mrs Kordell Stewart is looking to put the drama behind her by delving into another of her passions – music.

In a surprising move, the 32-year-old has announced plans for a five-song EP – the lead single from which she says will arrive in a mere matter of weeks.

Details after the jump…

Speaking to The Dish column on, the budding entrepreneur revealed that the track is titled ‘Flatline’. About the single and its accompanying project, she gushed:

“I just finished the first single. We’re going to be releasing [it] within the next two weeks! I’m so excited!

I’ve been working on this song throughout the whole divorce and the whole season [of RHOA], mapping out my emotions and putting in things that I’ve gone through. [The song has a soulful sound], it’s really kind of a documentary of everything that I went through to become who I am now.

It’s emotional and it’s me really being vulnerable and just saying the things that a lot of people feel when you have a heartache and break up with someone.

When we first put it together, I literally cried. I was like, ‘Wow, this embodies everything that I have ever felt, and any of my girlfriends have ever felt, when they were coming out of a breakup. It’s just a beautiful song.”

Naturally, given the musical output from other Housewives such Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield, many are side-eying Williams and the legitimacy of her campaign. She, however, maintains that she is entirely serious.

“I know that I’m taking myself seriously. This is not my first time in the studio—I’ve done demo tracks before. I didn’t become a Housewife and say, ‘Oh, I want to sing!’ I just decided I had the time to put into it, to actually release something this time. When you go through something like I did, you lean on music. It was really important to me and I decided I wanted to share that with everybody else.”

On whether the show’s sole musical maestra Kandi Burrus helped her with her new material, Williams said:

“We didn’t work together on any of these songs, but she did stop by the studio once or twice while I was working on a couple songs and gave me a few angles and pointers. She was such a great friend—pushing me and telling me she believed in me. She was very encouraging”.


Truth be told, we love us some Ms. Williams – supposed ditziness and all. Does she have what it takes to hang on the charts, though? Time will tell. But if her performance at last year’s reunion is anything to go by, she has….potential.

Does Rihanna have anything to worry about (beyond her own devastating vocals)? Let us know below…

    She wasn’t that bad singin on her reunion. Hopefully the song is better then tardy for the party and gone with the wind fabulous.

    No wonder music is so trash nowadays, these fame-hungry b****** out here dropping basic albums for money and more fame, not to express their art/be innovative/create a legacy.

  3. tits mcgee January 25, 2014

    Her voice is no more basic the other broads on the show who put out songs. Plus, Porsha is the prettiest chick EVER on RHOA,so she should sell well. #GoodLuckGorgeous

  4. Tisha January 25, 2014

    Flatline at all these random broads thinking they can sing.

  5. Stephy Tha Lambily January 25, 2014

  6. Kareem Williams January 25, 2014

  7. Honey January 25, 2014

    Should be interested to hear, she could surprise us or it could sound awful, either way, I’m certain it sound much better then the two ex housewives previous musical outputs mention in this article, I like her, so I wish her the best of luck with it

  8. Metzo` January 25, 2014

    Uh No.

    If everybody with a mediocre voice decided to pursue music careers there would be no one actually working real jobs. Sadly I believe the world in the near future will have less to no doctors, lawyers, or everyday ppl making the world go round, just a bunch of wannabe entertainers. Porsha is a dimwit and that’s putting it lightly, she needs to get off her ass and get a real job and stop relying on spousal support to buy $10k shoes when she should be paying her bills. Oh and Kenya (given her occasional nasty attitude) is the most attractive imo on the show. Porsha looks like a deer in headlights, literally her eyes look far apart. But I digress…

    I agree! In years to come they will be calling these basic b****** Divas and Icons because labels want to sign standard shower vocals and an image. I see the future of music a disaster whilst real talent will be working 9-5’s

  11. FutureCIARA January 25, 2014

    I guess we will see….

    Please no ballads!!!!

  12. shisha January 25, 2014

    Not buying it! Kmichelle Tamar and now Porsha, we will see! I cant stand the music industry and all the reality tv stars all up in the studio trying to make music. kindof sucks! Not sure what to think about her looks, she is definately not the prettiest!

  13. So fresh January 25, 2014

    I too agree she is the most attractive on the show. Truly a beautiful woman. #donewiththat

    However, I agree also w/ the future of the world n these less than mediocre artists being signed and shooting to fame.

    With that said, I still am interested to hear wat she cn do. At least the single lol

    TV personality’s have crossed over to music since way back in the day. I mean look at Jackie Gleason, William Shatner, Bruce Willis, Jared Leto, Gwen Paltrow, all the way to reality stars. This is not the end of music because it’s not a new thing! Plus usually these are fringe interest projects. It’s just away for these celebrities to build their brand. Not the end of western civilization. #CalmDown #NoveltyActs

    oh lawd

    @Shisha actually Tamar and K Michelle can actually sing a lot better than most of these reality stars out here trying to sing. I think they’re more serious about a singing career as well because that was the reason they got on reality TV was to promote themselves. Lets not forget that Tamar was already a singer with an album out before she got on reality TV, she just used her reality shows as a platform to relaunch her solo career. meanwhile I think other reality stars like Porsha and Kim just do music for fun.

    Porsha Williams is so stupid she needs to go back to school and earn some self respect she is so naive and very unaccomplished just a taker and very dumb.
    Kendi’s family is so ghetto that just shows money will not turn any one sophisticated once a bush ghetto girl always you will be popularity and money does not change.
    People are tired of this fake drama women. First nothing good comes from Atlanta and black women get famous in acting stupid which acting stupid has given bravo the name and money using the down low black women who want to act ghetto and low class in front of the camera.
    Phaedra , you can do better than that you are educated. Kenya’s figure looks like a guys body, fake buttocks the whole world knows it and the Nigerian man can see far they are number one scums in the whole planet so Kenya be careful your butty may just fall apart. I love Nene she is real. Cindy too though she is too emotional 13yr old daughter is too young to date and soon you will be a granny.
