“RHOA” star Porsha Williams wasn’t joking about pursuing her dream to become a famous singer. She debuted her first single “Flatline”, the first of five songs from her upcoming EP.
She confessed to “The Dish” that she channeled her feelings from her high profile divorce with NFL player Kordell Stewart in the song.
“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. 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.”
It doesn’t look like fans will be quick to compare Porsha’s “Flatline” to Kim Zolciak’s party hits “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party” and “The Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing.”
Williams, who said that she broke down when she first heard the song, added, “I know that I’m taking myself seriously. This is not my first time in the studio—I’ve done demo tracks before. 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.”
While Grammy-Award winning writer Kandi Burruss didn’t have a hand at making this potential hit, Porsha did credit her for being a good friend throughout the process.
“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,” says Porsha. “She was such a great friend—pushing me and telling me she believed in me. She was very encouraging.”
