Michelle Williams Will Have You Twerking For Jesus With Gospel Club-Banger “Fire”: Listen

By: Mike Wass / September 23, 2013

Michelle Williams effortlessly blended gospel and old-school soul on inspirational ballad “If We Had Your Eyes”. This time around, the Destiny’s Child diva takes it straight to the club! Yes, “Fire” could well be the first ode to Jesus that inspires listeners to drop it low since Mary Mary‘s “Shackles (Praise You)”. Which is quite the feat.

Produced by Harmony Samuels, the slick club-banger pulses with staccato beats and intricate hooks — all while Michelle stays true to her faith on the catchy chorus: “it feels just like fire, fire caught up in my bones, don’t leave me alone!”

This is a great sound for the social media pioneer. “Fire” is a solid bet to crossover to urban radio, while dance remixes would seem an inevitability. Listen to the latest taste from Michelle’s fourth LP Journey To Freedom after the jump.
