It looks like Porsha Williams wasn’t joking when she said she wants to be a singer.
During an interview with Bravo.com’s The Dish, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” singer announced plans to release a five-song EP and a new single, titled “Flatline.”
“I just finished the first single. We’re going to be releasing [it] within the next two weeks! I’m so excited,” she gushed. “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.”
Despite the “Housewives’” long history of wannabe singers, Porsha said fans should take her music career very seriously.
“I know that I’m taking myself seriously. This is not my first time in the studio—I’ve done demo tracks before,” she explained. “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.”
The former Mrs. Stewart went on to say that she didn’t work with fellow cast member Kandi Burrus on this project, but she was very supportive.
“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,” Porsha said. “She was such a great friend—pushing me and telling me she believed in me. She was very encouraging”.
