Kameelah Williams, aka Meelah, is an American recording artist best known for being the lead singer of the famous Motown 1990s trio “702″.

702 consisted of Kameelah Williams and sisters LeMisha and Irish Grinstead, who were students at the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts. Thanks to the help and support of actor/comedian Sinbad and recording artist Michael Bivins, the girls were discovered. They made their recording debut on Subway’s hit single “This Lil’ Game We Play”.

After that recording, however, the group went through a restructuring phase during which Bivins added Kameelah Williams to the group and deemed her the lead singer.The restructured group was christened 702, which is Las Vegas’ area code, and was now ready to record their first album. The group’s first album was entitled: “No Doubt” and soared to #1 on the charts.

Missy Elliott co-wrote & produced four songs on the album including the smash hit single “Steelo” and its remix. The album spawned three hit singles: “Steelo”, “All I Want” and “Get It Together”. In addition, “Steelo” with altered lyrics was used as the theme song for the Nickelodeon television show Cousin Skeeter & “All I Want” was featured in the Nickelodeon movie Good Burger.

Kameelah Williams now is the mother of a boy, Zac, who is fathered by Musiq Soulchild. They have been in the studio writing and working on a new music for her upcoming solo album.

Musiq Soulchild Covers Rolling Out Magazine

On His Style:
“I just try to keep it fresh. Even though I’m really into fashion, I’m into fashion as a means of creative expression. I dress myself according to my personal creative expression. … I try to keep it comfortable. I try to keep it simple.”

On Self-Tweeting:
“Yeah, I tweet. There are parameters around that, but I do get personal as far as communicating with people here and there, retweeting comments and things like that. I answer people back through my @ mentions, but I don’t get too involved with it. I learned that back with MySpace. If you respond a certain way because you’re a celebrity, then they say, ‘Oh, he’s trippin’, so I don’t really get into it like that.”

On His Childhood:
“I was very ‘untypical.’ Very ‘untraditional.’ Very unconservative. Very ‘un’ everything. For instance, I thought everybody could sing. That’s just the way I viewed life and the world. If I could do it, everybody could do it. So, it created an expectation and whenever I would meet somebody I would say, ‘Sing me something,’ and they would look at me like, ‘You’re nuts.’ ”

On Love:
“I felt that everyone had the same sentiments when it came to love that I did. I felt like if you really cared for somebody then that was it. It never occurred to me that people could lie about the way they felt about you. I had to learn that the hard way.”

On Negative Feedback:
“I don’t really take it in as far as the negative things. I’m the kinda person, if someone is saying something negative about me, I’m going to investigate it to see if there’s any truth to it because I can only see myself the way I see myself. Other people view you differently. So, if somebody says something that I don’t really like to hear, but it’s true, then it’s true. If I don’t like it, then I should change it. If it’s not true, then it don’t go nowhere, and I just leave it at that.”
