Destiny’s Child Michelle Williams Goes For New Sound and Look With New CD

Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams goes another route with “Unexpected,” after releasing two gospel albums. Driven by heavy bass and curvy synth, “Unexpected” is more R&B/dance bassed. The disc marks the follow-up to her 2004’s “Do You Know” and 2002’s “Heart to Yours.” The first single off “Unexpected” will be the synth-heavy “We Break the Dawn.” However, Music World CEO Mathew Knowles insists “Unexpected” isn’t that much of a stretch, considering the characteristically quiet Williams spent the bulk of 2007 playing the sexy character Shug Avery in Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago-based cast of “The Color Purple.” “Destiny’s Child fans bought Michelle’s last album (which sold about 78,000 copies),” said Knowles. “So now those fans are in their late 20s and early 30s. With ‘Unexpected,’ she’ll be able to appeal to those fans and reach back to the 16-year-old audience and hit mainstream pop radio.” “We Break the Dawn” is the first single, set for release in April, while “Stop This Car” is the second.
