Exclusive VIDEO: We Catch Up With Your ’90s Crush Christopher Williams

July 11, 2011  |  

Were you a Christopher Williams fan back in the day? Will you be checking for his new album?

“Don’t wake me, I’m dreamiiiiiiin!” If you have not screamed that line in a car at the top of your lungs with your girls, you have not lived. Christopher Williams smashed onto the scene in the early ’90s with his pretty boy steez and sultry vocals with the hit “Dreamin.”  Then he got in your head even more when he took the suited and booted role Kareem in “New Jack City.” As of late he’s been on the road performing in plays and yes, working on new music.

Madame Noire got to chop it up with the actor/singer in New Orleans recently and he had some interesting things to say about his new album, what he thinks about today’s singers and a very ummm, devoted fan.

Check it out!

    Ty to all my folks, ride with me on chapter 2….

  • HeyYou

    Stupid bit(ches like you would have had a fit if a black man said something in regards to not finding darkskinned girls attractive except for ONE.

    Dark-skinned men are no different, nor are they somehow better than lightskinned men

    Try thinking before you type next time.

    Ignorant Bit(ches like you irritate rational people.

  • I saw him three years ago @ a concert @ south street seaport in NYC, and he still got it and he can still get it!

  • Angela you have him confused with Al B. Sure. That's the man who P.Diddy is stepfather to his son. lol. Christopher much success to you.

  • Shayla

    I was a fan back then and I'm still a fan. I've always wondered "What ever happened to that fine Christopher Williams?" lol..and I'm not a big fan of light skin men, but Christopher Williams and Dwayne Johnson aka "The Rock"……umph umph UMPH !!!! Ha!! Christopher's voice is yet another of those rare talents from back in the day. Strong, manly, SOULFUL. The kind of voice that just sinks below your skin, through the bone right down to your very soul kind of voice. LOVED it then and LOVE it now. He's aged, but still as GORGEOUS as ever. People say music isn't what it used to be, but I must give props to Usher, Chris Brown, NeYo, Tyrese, J. Holiday and Tre Songs because each of them are truly extremely talented and they all CAN sing. Great voices for their generation…much love

    • HeyYou

      Another Ignorant Bit(ch.

      You and Sheria need to stop with that bs about not liking lightskinned men when you cows would be happy to get any kinda play from any man.

      • Shayla

        sorry to bruise da ego, but as i said and " IT'S MYYYYYY PREFERENCE" ….I am not in to light skin men. So if you can't handle that and need to lash out at someone's PERSONAL PREFERENCE, then you must get told that alot and be very lonely..a person can always tell alot about another person who has nothing better to do then lash out….. but anyway, —-> .BEST WISHES, GOD BLESS AND GOOD KARMA TO YOU!!!! This is your five minutes of the attention you obviously needed lol …no need to reply because it will be deleted and ignored………MY BROTHER…smh

        • HeyYou

          Still a stupid bit(ch no matter how you try to backpeddle. Try having some TACT the next time you type.

          And I'm not your brother, bit(ch. I don't claim ignorant black people as my own.

  • J riv

    A little trivia for you on Mr. Williams. His aunt was the great Ella Fitzgerald. Bet you didn’t know bout that. S/O to Christopher Williams.

  • angela
