The journey continues for the vocal beast that is Michelle Williams as she has released ‘Believe In Me’ as the latest single from her critically acclaimed fourth album ‘Journey To Freedom’.
On the song, Williams delivers a beautiful, introspective message paired with her powerful vocals, she will start shooting the video next week.
This is a must-have on your playlist.

Michelle Williams Upcoming Album
Come September 9th and Destiny’s Child alumni, Michelle Williams will drop her hotly anticipated 4th album, titled ‘Journey To Freedom’ which is preceded by lead singles
1.‘If We Had Your Eyes’ which is a thought-provoking song that speaks about seeing things from God’s point of view
2. ‘Fire’ which is a mid tempo gospel song that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Rihanna album.
3. Twerk-inducing ‘Say Yes’ which features her former band mates Kelly Rowland and Beyonce.
Williams, with this album is returning to her gospel roots but also infusing the sound she experimented with on her 3rd album titled ‘Unexpected’, she christened the sound of her upcoming album ‘Urban/Inspirational’.
Having been a fan of Michelle Williams from the beginning, I can safely say she just keeps getting better, from the singles she has released thus far, this is promising to be her best album to date (even though I still religiously listen to ‘Heart To Yours’, ‘Do You Know’ and ‘Unexpected’).
The confirmed track list for this album is as follows:
1. ‘Need Your Help’
4. ‘Fall’ featuring Tye Tribett & Lecrae
7. ‘Just Like You’
9. ‘Believe In Me’
10. ‘In The Morning’
11. ‘If We Had Your Eyes’ featuring Fantasia
12. ‘Say Yes’ featuring Beyonce & Kelly Rowland
The album can be pre-ordered worldwide on itunes, amazon and walmart, below is the South African itunes link:
South African twerking troop ‘Protwerkers’
What is this ‘twerking’?
It is a form of sexually provocative dancing that involves shaking the hips in an up and down motion, causing the dancer’s buttocks to jiggle.
This type of dance is believed to have originated in Africa but popular American superstar Miley Cyrus has brought twerking into the spotlight in recent months, with many of her music videos and live performances showcasing this dance.
Former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams who is now a gospel singer set twitter alight back in June when she mentioned what she called “Holy twerking”.
After the release of her first single ‘If We Had Your Eyes’ off her upcoming album ‘Journey To Freedom’, Williams tweeted:
“Just bought my own single on Itunes!!! It’s available WORLDWIDE!!! #does a holy twerk….hahahahaha
She went on to describe the sound of her upcoming album, calling it an urban/inspiration record and saying there’s a song for everyone, even holy twerkers.
IS TWERKING GETTING OUT OF HAND?
It seems South Africans are refusing to be left out of the twerking experience and they have taken it a step further as can be witnessed on a Youtube video which shows scantily clad women twerking over an open grave at a funeral.
And there is a dance troop called ‘Protwerkers’ that has made a profession out of twerking.
What are your thoughts on twerking?
