Michelle Williams has always been known for her gospel roots, but don’t let the prayer cloth and long skirt fool you. She can get hood too. Rap-Up TV caught up with the Grammy-Award winner at the 2013 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards and she revealed the ‘unexpected’ sound of her new album “Journey To Freedom.”
“I got a couple beats on there that are going to make you turn up,” said Williams who worked with Harmony Samuels mainly and Warryn Campbell on a few songs.
The 32-year-old songstress allowed her mother to listen to the new project, who shared her honest opinion. “It’s supposed to be an inspirational type of record, and she was like, ‘This is different.’ She was like, ‘This sounds ratchet.”
“If We Had Your Eyes,” the lead single from”Journey To Freedom” was written from experience with someone less-fortunate and Williams was moved by the heartfelt tune. ““It touched me so much ’because it daily makes me examine myself.”
