meh, I'm not here for that, I wish she would try to get together with Kelly and try to get some contacts from Guetta and Darkchild etc.

But yeah I guess this is where her heart lays

TOMMY SIMS is producing on it WOOOO

PLUS Michelle said she's gonna merge all the genres she's done.

MARY MARY hold tight to your wigs 'cause Tenitra is coming to snatch.

She's already topped the Billboard Gospel album chart with Heart to Yours and the Dance singles chart with "The Greatest".

Mary Mary are a great example of how urban gospel music can crossover over onto the R&B and Dance charts ("Shackles (Praise You)" #28 Hot 100, #9 R&B | "Get Up" #30 R&B, #1 Dance | "God In Me" was #5 R&B, #1 Dance, #68 Hot 100)

With Michelle's dance fan base, I could see her racking up some more dance hits with the right sound.

So excited.

Her voice has grown so much. Her vocals in [/i]What My Husband Doesn't Know are proof of that.

Here she is singing "Number One":

Excited for new material from Michelle! Love her!

Btw, I sooooo wish to see her in theater. I was in London during her Chicago stint at the West End, but I missed her and to this day I am still horribly mad at myself! If anyone should hear ANY news about "Fela!" possibly coming to London (or any other European City for that matter), please post it here ASAP! :(

She's doing an Ashanti, going independent with distribution from eOne Music. - From Billboard

The Destiny's Child singer's first album since 2008 is largely produced by Harmony Samuels (Ariana Grande, Kelly Rowland, Fantasia).

After a nearly five-year wait, Michelle Williams is ready to release her fourth album, due out this summer. The Destiny's Child singer's latest, which she calls an "urban inspirational record," will be her first independent release since departing Music World/Columbia Records after the 2008 album "Unexpected." The new album will be issued on her own imprint and distributed by eOne Music.

At the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony this past week, Williams talked about how the forthcoming album (title to be announced) came together -- thanks in part to a chance meeting with producer Harmony Samuels.

Samuels was producing a song on Kelly Rowland's new album, "Talk a Good Game," which happens to feature Rowland's Destiny Child sisters Williams and Beyonce. Williams said "they were like 'Michelle, you gotta work with Harmony!'" Initially hesitant, Williams went to his studio and thought, "Ah ha! I see what the fuss is all about."

Samuels ended up doing nine or 10 songs on Williams' album, which might have about 12 tracks in total. Samuels has been very busy as of late, producing Ariana Grande's recent Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit "The Way" (featuring Mac Miller) in addition to the Rowland tune and the entirety of Fantasia's new album, "Side Effects of You."

Williams' last album, 2008's "Unexpected," debuted and peaked at No. 42 on the Billboard 200 and No. 11 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. It's lead single, "We Break the Dawn," reached No. 4 on the Dance/Club Songs chart, while its follow-up, "The Greatest," went to No. 1. The album has sold 34,000 in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan. It followed her two gospel albums, 2004's "Do You Know" and 2002's "Heart to Yours" (No. 1 on the Top Gospel Albums chart).

Ye i read that she had started her own label! i thought she signed with Light Records tho aswell??! the gospel label.....

anyways, Independent is probably the smartest decision shes made. As a solo artist, she just doesnt fit on a major label. She doesnt really have any solo "hits", isnt a big album seller, never tours and probably hardly makes any money from music as a solo artist bieng on a major, so the whole independent thing is perfect for her and makes sense.

actually super excited for her new album! i have a feeling it will be her best album!

I think that each of her albums have been better than the one before, so I'm really curious to see how number 4 will turn out.
