Michelle Williams “The Greatest” Video

Michelle Williams Six years after releasing her first solo album, Michelle Williams is finally back with her sophomore effort, “Unexpected”. Michelle’s new opus hit record store shelves earlier this week. Unfortunately, Hits Daily Double, has not posted their one day sales report which would have given us a glimpse into where Michelle’s album would have possibly landed on the charts next week. This is news I know everyone is excited to hear seeing as how Michelle’s entire album leaked to the net almost a month ago. Few people seem to think Michelle’s album will go top 10, but luckily for the singer, her record label seems to be sticking by the project. “The Greatest”- the second single from Unexpected is about to be sent to radio stations and a video has been shot as well.

The single seems to be universally loved by fans and critics, so that’s a good sign for Michelle and hopefully the video will give the album a bounce in sales that it will surely need to go top 10.

  1. i luv chelle and this is my fav song off her album. i was praying her album did good but i dont think thats goin to happen coz beyonce has already started leaking her music out. nwayz da video looks gud and lovin the hair.

  2. Very pretty! :brownsista: Michelle sounds good, looks good. :thumbsup:

  3. The cop out…”Her album will not do well BECAUSE of Beyonce.”
    It must be nice to always blame somebodyelse when all else…

    I love the Greatest more than the 1st single WBTD. While the 1st vid is a bit shaky she seems more confident in this one. She looks gorgeous. I love all the outfits…you see the killer legs lol. Her record company sucks. They pushed her release date back too much. Even if she wasn’t pulling the numbers they expected, they should’ve kept the original date. Her record and this video was suppose to be out MONTHS ago.

    It’s worse to release now because the album already leak a full month ago. There is no element of surprise. Some who would’ve bought it already have it for free. The state of the economy is in shambles. I hope her true fans still purchase Unexpected to support her. Those who truely wanted to support her in the first place will do so regardless.

  4. :iagree: with Snijana…..that is a cop out! Her album won’t do well because of poor promotion, poor management, poor single choices, several pushbacks, and poor timing. All the ones that blame Beyonce, make sure you support Chelle then since you feel so bad for her

  5. :brownsista: Love this single! Video is great!

    :loser: For all those blaming Beyonce for not getting off their butts to buy the album! Go out and support a Brown Sistah! SMH!

  6. If all you people keep saying you like this girl then why won’t you all buy her cd. I just don’t understand the comments here. You all are contradicting yourselves. He cd won’t do good because people keep saying they like her and her music but they won’t buy it because of her management. Yet the person who has the same manangement you all will stand out in the rain and wait in line for her cd. It just makes no sense to me. :stop: The madness.

  7. I like it, I already got my album plus 2 copies for my sisters its a niece effort my favorite songs are “the greatest” “Till The End Of The World” “Unexpected”
    I told you i got YOU michelle. :brownsista:

  8. too bad her “friend“ released her singles on the 10 th instead of the 14th..smdh
    michelle williams? next…..! i`m waiting for brandy

  9. This is a great song by Michelle, I absolutely love it. I also like the look of the video. I was immediately sold on the song after the first couple of bars. Good job all the way.

    MJ & The Golden 80s forever!!!

  10. I already bought my album. I’m already bumping it in my car. Good job Michelle.

  11. Like the song, like the video.
    She looks real good in the video and maybe this second release will help her out some…

  12. I am not going to sit here and front. I have no interest in Michelle or Kelly’s music. If it were not for the black media and web sites, I would not have even known that the two were releasing an album because I don’t here their music on the radio or see their music videos.

    The industry has changed. Just because they were in a successful group does not mean they will have the same success as the one who made it big. Blood is thicker than water and Matthew Knowles is going to look out for his daughters only. These two are grown woman and need to find new management, get an education or find a trade.

    There is way too much competition in the music business and the record companies are only going to promote and invest in the artist that they know are going to make them some money.

  13. I have been out most of the day and took cabs all over town. I cannot tell you how many times I heard Single Ladies. After about the 2nd time though it just kinda came to me- radio has no interest in playing anyone associated with Destinys Child, except Beyonce. Solange, Kelly and Michelle just don’t stand a chance and it isn’t for lack of talent or great songs. If radio won’t play your track the public will never get a chance to really grow to love it. Few ppl love a song on first listen. Repeated airplay is what makes a song a hit and Beyonce has that built in. Radio may play Solange, Kelly and Michelle once- but then they drop it. I can’t blame Mathew anymore- I never did really. It is radio and the public who who keep blowing the other ladies of DC off.

  14. i dont care how many times they play her songs on radio, besides i dont listen to radio that much…..urban radios to be precise :noway:

  15. I actually think that Kelly is the better out of all three she just needs the right promotion team behind her and I think she will flourish..her last album was a good ablum but nobody really payed attention and the same thing w/ Michelle I havent seen one bit of promotion for this chick which is sad!!! I feel like B’ is overrated and I do agree media hopes on what they think is hot and put the other things to the side!!!

  16. Aw man, how could I have missed commenting on Michelle which is what this post is about (Dammit Bey…lol). Uh, Michelle looks really good in that video…4real, 4real. That hair cut fits her and she looks like she’s enjoying the whole video shoot. I can’t comment on the music yet because I don’t have my head phones (lazy right now), but i’m assuming/hoping that it sounds good. Peace.

  17. So, once again folks! Go out and pick up the album and show Michelle some love! Her album is fiyah!

  18. PEOPLE IF YOUR NOT PROMOTED RIGHT PEOPLE AINT GOING TO PAY U NO MIND…… EVERYTIME BEY CAME OUT WITH AN ALBUM SHE WAS EVERYWHERE …THEY MADE SURE SHE WAS EVERYWHERE… AN I DO BLAME MATTHEW BECAUSE HOW SOLONGE PERFORM AT FASHION ROCKS HOW SHE WAS ON LOREAL WITH BEY AN HER MUSIC WAS PLAYIN IN THE BACKGROUND ONLY REASON WHY SOLONGE ALBUM DID SELL BECAUSE HOW THEY ARE BEHIDE CLOSE DOORS CAME TO THE LIGHT THREW SOLONGE IN PUBLIC OH AN HOW IS MICHE OPENING FOR SOLONGE AT A FREE CONCERT IT CALL BLOOD THICKER THEN WATER …..LOOK ALL IT TAKES IS FOR ONE REALLY GOOD ADD FROM A GOOD PRODUCT LIKE COVER GIRL AN SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN SET BUT U KNOW WE WILL NEVER KNOW BECAUSE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE NEVER NEW SHE WAS COMING OUT WITH AN ALBUM UNTIL I GOT ON THE NET AN I’M ONE OF THEM I DID GET ALBUM BUT ITS NOT GOIN TO MAKE A DIFF ……….BABY GIRL GET NEW MANAGMENT AN START ALL OVER AGAIN

  19. I do blame Papa Knowles cause if i remember clearly didn’t Kelly Rowland start her solo carrer before Bee and they weren’t even promoting her like that. Kelly has one hit to her name and thats dilemma with Nelly. I mean wasn’t beyonce mad her album was getting push back for kelly. The only reason Beyonce became a hit is because she was singing all the leads. I siad it before and i say it again Kelly was the looker in the good.

    I feel if destiny child didn’t have that drama beyonce wouldn’t be as big as she was today.

  20. Clear & Truth did you go out and buy her album? If not, you need to blame yourself!

  21. ITS ABOUT REQEST
    Beyonce’s new song if I were a boy was requested over 47,000 times on z100 before 12 noon.
    Its the people that make a song a hit. ITS NOT ON RADIO IF PEOPLE DONT ASK FOR IT.

  22. I just want to know how did Michelle’s album leak? I think it’s someone in the camp because no regular joe schmoe in the studio with her, there all inside people. Michelle is stuck with Matthew she chose to sign his management contract, he has her and Kelly on lock for a while. Just like when the other girls were in the group they were not allowed to get new management because they were under contract with Matthew, so they got fired, replaced in videos, and cut out the will. Im bored of Michelle and Kelly! They should know Beyonce and co. is all about that image and money.

  23. yall stop all the fighting and support the album lers request this song on the radio and make michelle get her first number 1!! and her album is hot i picked it up today this song sold it to me!lol anyways kelly had a chance to outshine beyonce after her hit with nelly! but!! she went and did alternitive music she should of stick to rnb

  24. :stop: MELISSA I CLEARLY SAID THAT I BOUGHT THE ALBUM BYT IT WOULD NOT MAKE A DIFFERENTS ……

  25. I don’t buy albums unless someone come with the truth. Today artist don’t care for the music just the sells. The only album i buy is greatest hits from the greatest artist from the 90’s-and down

  26. sooo…i thought this post was to be able michelles new song and video not about arguing about who did what… :stop: you people need to relax and enjoy the music….no matter who did what she still has an album and the songs are there…

  27. It’s a nice song. That contract has to be coming to an end soon. It’s been awhile since the group parted ways. Maybe that is why Kelly is overseas so when she comes out again, it, will be like re-introducing yourself. People are just requesting that song because of who is on it. Because it is definately not because of the songs. Those songs both of them were terrible.

  28. @ bria maybe both of the songs arent terrible…mayb you are just saying it because you dont like the person that sings it….ever thought about that?

  29. I hear more whining and less buying. That’s the reason why Beyonce does well is because she has determined fans and great promotion. I still think that if Michelle was to have all the promotion in the world, it wouldn’t have made a difference. I like Michelle but I’m just speaking the truth. This song is average like all the rest of her material to me. Won’t be buying it but I have respect for Michelle of doing what she loves to do.

  30. NEWS!!!!! Michelle So far has sold almost 52,000 copies since tuesday. She is looking at a top 5 debut this week.

  31. Hello Brown Sister Fam’ …. longtime lurker that wanted share my greetings and make a comment. Moving on…. I am going to be honest…Michelle is just NOT on my musical radar at the moment and I am not going to buy her or anyone else’s CD just because she is a “brown sistah”! I have to actually have a feeling for the music and I am sorry but I am not feeling for Michelle nor her music. Right now I am bumping Ms. J Sullivan & Ms. J Hudson (absolutely LUV that song she has w/ T Pain!!) But I wish all the Best on this CD!!

    Question for Stephanie & WPC…. do the both of you live in the New York state? And I asked because of Stephanie’s comment about the Single Ladies song. Contrary to the both of your stories, those songs are getting NO airplay down here in the DMV (DC, MD, & VA for those that don’t know) I have been listening since those songs were released to hear peoples reaction, but other than the first day, the DMV are for once not hopping on “The Golden Child” music and wearing the radio out w/ constant rotation spins… actually I’m the one throwed to the left by this…thought I’d never see the day………

  32. ^^^^^ That’s urban and non-urban stations. 🙄 :thumbsup:

    While at work, I’m flipping that MP3 player radio to death w/ my fav preset stations!! :thumbsup:

  33. Michelle My Gurl!! Im really proud for and of her she’s droppin’ a good album her vocals and style seem to be stronger as she grows, once agin I’m soo excited for her I’m buying her Album!! 3 of my FAV GURLS this year : Janet, J-Hud and of course Michelle !! :brownsista: :brownsista: :brownsista: :bowdown:

  34. @luckycharm

    i live in maryland and single ladies have played on 93.9. i don’t really listen to the radio so i don’t know if 92.3 or 95.5 have played them. however, you should know that the songs don’t go out to all radio stations til oct. 14 because if i were a boy has only been sent to 17 stations and it’s already looking like its going to debut on hot 100 this week. trust when the official release date comes, you’ll be hearing them all over dc, well single ladies anyway. if i were a boy is more for the 99.5 crowd

    anyway, people need to stop blaming others for someone else’s failure. worry about yourself and if you are supporting and not if anybody else is or not. i’m a bee fan and you best believe come nov. 18, i will not be worried about who else is in line to the get that cd, i’ll make sure i get mine :thumbsup:

  35. @Mario: I would have to be some sort of psycho to not like a person I have never met. I don’t know this woman so it would be hard for me to not like her as a person. The songs are terrible because they are just that terrible. It has nothing to do with who she is as a person. I don’t know if you are what they call a stan, but, to say maybe I don’t like her because I don’t like her new song is a bit immature. My favorite singers ever are Whitney Houston and Phyllis Hyman and even I didn’t like every song they came out with.

    I am not a fan of Beyonce, but, she has made some nice songs these two just aren’t apart of that nice song collection.

  36. @LuckyCharm
    YES Im in Nyc. Z100 is a POP/WHITE station THEY love “if I were A Boy” its not at all stations yet because the official release is next week.
    THE VIDEOS
    Will air on MONDAY on MTV and BET

  37. Top 5 Requests at Z100 New York after 1 Day!!” Z100’s Romeo on the Radio told Celebrity News service about the song “If I Were A Boy.” Power 105.1 Debut Beyonce’s Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” and the sations Ed Lover told Celebrity News Service “This one is a smash!”

  38. I love it, bought the album last weekend, listen to it about 6 times already… love it love it…

  39. In lil old Indianapolis, our Top 40 station is already wearing out If I Were a Boy. The white dj’s were talking very highly of it. They love it! I have yet to hear Single Ladies on the urban radio station here, but then again, I hardly listen to that station.

  40. I don’t think Tenitra could fire Matthew for his obviously poor management because she’s signed to Music World. She can’t win. All the best to her though. :thumbsup:

  41. Actually this is Michelle’s 3rd solo effort, Her first was heart To Yours in 02, followed by Do You Know in 04. However because this album is so well put together and does hae decent promotion, with the right singles she could go top 10. You can’t really compare her to Beyonce with this album because the genres of the 2 are completely different…..

  42. WOW!!! I actually forgot she even just released an album. Since all the publicity has been focused on someone else on that lable. Terrible manager. Anyways…………..I like the song very much and Michelle looks pretty also.

  43. I live in South Carolina and I definately dont listen to the radio. They rarely give the new songs any play. I had to keep requesting it so I could finally hear it.

  44. So now we’re not even talking about Michelle anymore huh? The post just went off about other people.

    I love this song but the video looks boring. Obviously another cheap video like all the ones Kelly got. This song is so deep. She should have gotten a video that told a story the audience could connect with. All I see is her being sexy and random shots of some athletes. No apparent storyline. This song is powerful, one of few songs you love from the first time you hear it, and with an interesting video that will guarantee it repeated mainstream airplay, Michelle’s career would be set. She would have set herself apart from DC as having her own voice cause this is the most “different” sound I have heard from any of the DC girls.

  45. OMG YALL MICHELLE REALLY FLOPPED!!! SHE ONLY SOLD 3,800 ALBUM 😆 O WELL SHE SHOULD OF LEFT THE KNOWLES AFTER DC3 ENDED! POOR CHELLE BUT ITS FUNNY SHE WAS PART OF THE BEST SELLING FEMALE GROUP BUT SHE CANT EVEN SALE 10,000 COPIES ON HER WON POOR CHELLY! SOLANGE OUTSOLD HER BY A WHOLE LOT! DAMM

  46. Kelly send you are incorrect. The final numbers from HDD are not in yet and then the official Soundscan numbers won’t be known until Wednesday night. Also, what did you expect, Michelle’s album leaked ages ago and radio refuses to support her. Michelle couldn’t possibly survive in such a hostile enviorment where her label and the media at large have turned their back on her.

  47. AWwwwww michelle I do enjoy a couple of her songs but not enuf to own a cd
