We previously told you about Porsha Stewart’s venture into music, but now we have a little more information.
Her first single, “Flatline,” is due next month.
“I just finished the first single,” she tells The Dish exclusively of her upcoming five-song EP. “We’re going to be releasing the single within the next two weeks! I’m so excited!”
As expected, the song was written by Porsha and another songwriter about her divorce from Kordell Stewart.
“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,” she explains of her “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,” she adds.
Porsha wants to make it known not to discredit her music career. She insists she’s taking this seriously and isn’t just trying to extend her 15-minutes of fame like other housewives.
“I know that I’m taking myself seriously. This is not my first time in the studio—I’ve done demo tracks before,” Porsha explains. “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.”
What did fellow housewife Kandi Burruss have to say about Porsha’s foray into music?
“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.”
We can’t wait to hear it! Although, we have a feeling a certain HOA won’t be too happy that Porsha’s spending money on studio time…
