Michelle Williams takes a look through the eyes of God in the video for “If We Had Your Eyes,” the first single off her upcoming fourth album Journey to Freedom. In the Derek Blanks-directed clip, the Destiny’s Child singer conveys a powerful message through different stories, with cameos from the song’s producer Harmony Samuels and former DC member LeToya Luckett.
The song was inspired by an actual homeless man. “The homeless person asked [songwriter Al Sherrod Lambert] for some money, so he gave him all that he had,” said Williams. “The homeless man eventually started speaking into him.”
The 33-year-old singer worked mainly with Harmony and Warryn Campbell on the follow-up to 2008’s Unexpected, and has a few treats in store. “I collabed with somebody that people are gonna be shocked about,” she told Rap-Up TV.
