  • Is it safe to say that the re-release is not happening then? Considering she's back in a musical right now.

    I don't care much for a remix album, but I was expecting the re-release that was mentioned a long time ago, with some new songs, and some re-done.

      She already confirmed months ago that the re-release wasn't going to happen anymore.

            • HERE IS THE AWNSER ABOUT THE RE-RELEASE!

              RETROmalure.com got a chance to talk to the hit singer, this is what she had to say..

              1. So what has Michelle Williams been doing since the release of her last album UnExpected?
              Of course I’m still working on new music. I spent the entire summer in London doing Chicago, and I will be back on Broadway in February doing the same thing. I have about two weeks of rehearsal because I believe there are a little differences in the New York show and the London show. I think 2 weeks is enough to make sure it’s still in my blood, I did it in Morocco for New Years and it was pretty much still there (laughs).

              2. I have the record, and I myself was sure that the album would be a huge success with songs such as “Hello HeartBreak”, “The Greatest”, “Private Party”, and so on. Were you surprised with the lack of sales? I was surprised. I was very excited that it garnered positive reception even from publications that I would have never thought would have given me the great reviews that they gave me. However, I was disappointed in the sales and disappointed that people still didn’t know it was out. But that’s why you keep going and let people be aware of you, so that’s what 2010 is all about.

              3. Were you targeting a certain audience, specifically a gay audience with the techno beats and pop sound?
              Actually I wasn’t. Now you know Rico Love and you know Rico Love was not sitting in the studio snapping his fingers saying this one right here we gonna do it for the kids (laughs). We just knew that there was this Euro crave going on, or something that we could tap in to, so that’s how we started making the music. You know, I do music for everybody, gay/straight, black white. There were a lot of the toughest guys that really loved “Hello Heartbreak”.

              4. Do you have any plans for a re-release of that album?
              There were plans for a re-release and there were plans for Europe to do a proper release, however I am just as stunned as everybody else that it didn’t take place. No reason why, it just didn’t happen.

              5. With your next album, will you return to gospel or continue in the pop genre?
              It will be the same as UNEXPECTED as far as the vibe I was going for. I think that I might add a couple more live musical elements, but I think I was on to something great. But who knows, maybe after that I will return to my gospel roots. I’m blessed to have two musical genres that I can fall back on.

              6. Have you started on the new album yet?
              I have started, my blackberry is full of concepts and the people that I would like to work with (laughs). I have dibbled and dabbled in the studio and laid down some demos, and who knows, those demos may be songs that go on my next album.

              7. How did you feel about some of the critics opinions when you decided to do a pop album versus gospel?
              It was crazy because the masses or majority of the world knew me as Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child and we were an R&B, pop group. It was like what did I go back to, what did I neglect. Both world’s can be very protective of their artist, and in the gospel world they want to keep their music “purer”. People have to realize most of got out start in the church as little children. But I have people that will still support me regardless of which genre I do.

              8. Now we know that you started out as a backup singer for Monica, when was the last time that you have spoken to her?
              We have talked on the phone and texted each other. We have funny moments because I watch her show on BET and if I see something funny then I will text her about it. I’m very happy for her; she is really doing her thing. She’s an awesome mother now for 2 little boys. She has always been a very nurturing person and I’m really proud of her.

              9. Now to Destinys Child, how did you get introduced to the girls?
              Well at the time, one of Monica’s dancers was actually Destiny’s Child choreographer. She told DC about me and I got the phone call. Actually DC opened up for Monica while we were on tour. A lot of people don’t know this but when I would meet Destiny’s Child it would only be Beyonce and Kelly. I recently met Letoya for the first time about 2 or 3 years ago. I have never met Latavia, I don’t know of anything about her, other than what is put out in the media. But I would only meet Beyonce and Kelly, and when I got into the group I always wondered how weird that was that I would only have communications with B and Kelly. But when I flew to Houston I just sung a song for them and that was it. So I waited a couple days and then I got the phone call and the rest is history.

              10. How did you guys feel when the group broke up? Did you guys cry?
              Well for the Destiny Fulfilled tour we cried, but I think during the last show we were numb. I don’t think we even believed it until months later when we weren’t doing shows together. All of us dealt with that separation in our own way. I cried a lot, but then I was like why am I crying when I can pick up the phone and call them. But we still hang out when were in each others cities, or if we are all in LA at the same time. We still hold that love for each other so we know for sure that that love will always be there.

              11. Will the group ever do another album together?
              I really don’t know, I’m giving you the honest to God answer, I really don’t.

              12. What do you think the music industry is lacking in right now?
              I think that a lot of guys have fallen into doing things that aren’t them. But I think a lot of artist like Maxwell and Ledisi are good at being them. I think a lot of us are guilty of putting what we want to do on the backburner to do music that we think will sell. But when you really be you then that is when you will succeed. I believe Lady GaGa every time I see her perform. I know Lady GaGa so I know that she isn’t putting on an act. That is her both on and off the stage, she is a sweet girl. You will believe Lady GaGa when you see her, at least I know I do. So I think more and more artists have to believe in what we are doing.
              Thanks to all my supporters, I love each and every one of you

              • Skorpion & Makael: the youtube personalities who always gossip about all the artists and stuff are one of the biggest fans of Michelle and they finally met her in person!!

                http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peDkm0d_ ... _embedded#

                She is so funny! She may be the least successful of DC3 but she definitely kills Bee & Kelz combined personality-wise!!

                • Thanks for posting that interview, dereon. I guess it's safe for me to get the album then lol. I had been waiting because when I was planning on getting it (not long after it came out), I heard about the re-release and decided to wait.

                    We Break The Dawn still does it for me! Everytime I listen to that song I feel lifted and happy! Maybe it's the song, the production or Michelle's annointing but that song for me is definately one of the best from any of DC's solo recordings...
                    ...back to Timbaland. If this is true, Michelle could really get the PUSH she deserves! =D
                    Lol! Have you seen the WBTD video, the naked dancer and Michelle all up in his bizzness? I don't know if I would call that annointing...haha...but yeah, its a great song. As for Timbaland, nowadays he can't even give himself a big push, so not sure he can do much for Tenitra either

                    Its a shame that Sony backed out on a proper release or re-release of the album in UK, I got so excited when a release date was set for Hello Heartbreak.

                    Dereon, thanks for posting that interview! Shame she didn't comment about her current label situation. Interesting that she knows Gaga, is still in touch with Monica, and could go back to gospel after her 2nd mainstream album. Its kinda strange to me she knows nothing about LaTavia, I would imagine that in years and years of living alongside Kelly and Bey they would have told her of the band's past, what really went on, etc, besides what was printed in the media. Also interesting the bit when she talks about "us" artists who put what they want to do on the backburner in order to do music that they think will sell (I wonder if she was talking about jumping on the euro-dance craze with Unexpected).

                    • Michelle is such a sweetheart, and "Unexpected" is a decent R&B/Pop record, she should've got soooo much more success! :(

                        GREAT performance, lovely interview but she looked TERRIBLE! She has never looked so old and ugly before. She needs to go back to the hair cut she had during the unexpected era, I loved it!

                                  Don't think so, since she also said that her next album will be going in the same direction.

                                  • "We Break The Dawn" is so so good and the remix is even better

                                    Unexpected is such a great album, it deserved more success...

                                                  I disagree. In 2008 it sounded fresh. Stop the Car should have been the lead single IMO.
