Most of us remember Meelah Williams from the R&B group 702 but then she (and the group) disappeared off the radar until R&B Divas ATL. Now back for their new season, the former lead singer opens her private doors for the sake of entertainment. As the series continues and we learn more about her and her relationship with Musiq—which was a shocker to us all—“He’s definitely anti reality but he’s my number 1 supporter,” her life as a mother to an autistic son, and what really happened with her former girl group. theJasmineBRAND.com met up with her to learn more about the not so boring songstress.

What the interview below.

theJasmineBrand: What happened with 702?

Meelah: The thing is, our break up wasn’t public, we went the political route and swept it under the rug. It seems like we demised but after the second album we were going through internal changes. We were tired, mentally; emotionally a lot of things took a toll. We were young, we started beefing about business issues like management and we couldn’t agree to disagree.  I was the lead singer and that was an issue. 

After the second album, I chose to take a break because it got real ignorant real quick and I didn’t feel like dealing with all that. After a while, I was asked me to come back so I went back for the third album which unfortunately was over before it even came out.
