Michelle Williams’ long-awaited ‘Unexpected’ LP finally hit stores across the globe this week. The Music World/Columbia set sees Williams, whose previous solo efforts were rooted in the Gospel genre, embrace a more Pop/Dance orientated sound.
I must say, after listening through the album recently, Michelle really does deliver the goods – definitely worth a purchase IMO. Standout cuts for me include ‘Thank You’, ‘The Greatest’ and ‘Hello Heartbreak’.
That said, That Grape Juice wants to know…
Will you be picking up ‘Unexpected’?
Just bought it!!!!
definitely. i wish she would get some radio play to boost her sales. plus its tough when your “sister” who is more famous decides to rain on your parade by releasing 2 singles within a week of your album….
i wouldnt be surprised if “if i were a boy” and “single ladies” just happened to “leak” today….
YES I will be buying!!!!! The album is great, so what if it leaked already, it’s worth the buy, LET’S SUPPORT MICHELLE!!!!
Not. I don’t think that CD deserves my money, honestly
OMG WILL BE BUYING IT BEFORE I GO TO WORK. I WAS LISTENING ONLINE TO A 44SECON INTRO AND I WAS HOOKED. THIS IS A GREAT ALBUM AND I HAVE NEVER REALLY LIKEED HER BEFORE BUT MAN THIS IS A BANGER
even though a few songs are listenable I don’t like her voice.
her voice is so whiney like fantasia’z…michelle, shes not marketable at all..people just see her as the dark looking girl from DC and thats all she will ever be..its not like she can sing like beyonce, jordin, aaliyah, rihanna, kelly, whitney erc…. u know what i mean ?
so if im going to have 2 listen 2 that whiney hot gorilla looking mess, it should at least put a bitta umph into it when shes singing….
i wont be buying this album, i downloaded it for free and it sucked it then went into my computers DUSTBIN !
and i tapped “delete”
give it up FLOPELLE WILLIAMS !
your time was up when you split with DC !
Great album, pity they aren’t even stocking it in most shops in the UK, had to get mine online :/ Poor girl, they’re not even giving her a chance. Anyway, my favourites tracks are Lucky Girl, The Greatest and We Break The Dawn.
WOW anonymous poster who felt the need to call her a gorilla and blah blah. YOU NEED JESUS!!! just because you may look like the backside of a donkey b*** doesn’t mean you have to put down everyone else. And you had the nerves to think Michelle couldn’t outsing Rihanna? LOL LOL. Anywho Michelle has a unique voice so what if her timbre is thinner. That i snot a crime. It depends on the listeners preference.
Enough with the unneccesasry I WILL be buyin Michelle’s cd today. All I have heard thus far has been AMAZING I can’t wait to hear it in it’s entirety.
I love Michelle’s voice but some of the songs on the album sound too popish.
I would not buy the album. I believe that her voice is amazing, but she should leave that sound to people who cannot sing.
Im buying—its different from anything we heard from DC. Beyonce loved Michelle’s album so much that she used the same unknown producer to write a few songs for her—beautiful nightmare is one
the person who thinks bleating billy goat rihanna cud out sing michelle is having a laugh!! u need 2 hear michellez song do u know n lets c if rihanna cud out sing michelle! anywho ima pick up michellez joint!
yeppp im getting a few copies!!! its hott stuff. different sound. its all about growth and michelle has definitely grown.
i bought it this morning but i feel bad cause it leaked months ago and people are cheap asses and arent goign to go out and buy it
sorry i wont…just not into her genre or type of music i should say,i like her though,i might buy some singles off of itunes…but i already have like 3 cds on my wishlist and those are priority lol…robin thicke,j-hud, and jazmine sullivan…then brandys is coming,then beys…but i know her real fans will come through for her (hopefully) get it michelle!
I like Michelle but I doubt I’ll buy the album..
I wanna get it. Plus a great looking cover. Good luck to her.
WOW… someone just said that Rihanna could sing better than Michelle. You’re delusional and really need to be checked. Michelle can sing circles around Rihanna any day.
And what’s all the hate for? It was a simple question… are you buying the CD or not. You don’t have go and start bashing Michelle. That’s really low and pathetic on your behalf.
As for me, yes, I will be buying the CD later today. Its so sad to see that Michelle isn’t getting the proper promotion that she deserves. Her album is pretty good and I think it deserves a chance. She has some great radio-friendly songs on there as well. Go support Michelle!
got a copy today, dunno why, i downloaded it like a month ago, but gonna support my girl
Yes I will the album is hott and should be brought she has stepped out of the box and that is what is I loved about her album.
I got the album last week – although it didn't really help it's UK chart position – and I have to say the ppl who aren't going to buy the album are really missing out on something. Being honest, this album is the most solid album of all the DC girls and it would shock anyone who listens to it. It has a mixture of gr8 R&B ballads and clubby pop/dance tunes. Highlights for me are 'Lucky Girl', 'The Greatest', 'Hungover' and 'Too Young For Love'.
I don't understand why people aren't giving her a chance just because she's not got a profile like Beyoncé or Kelly. If a commercial failure, at least it'll be a critical success and a hidden gem. But she does deserve the success for serving up something original.
”its not like she can sing like beyonce, jordin, aaliyah, [b][u]rihanna[/b][/u], kelly, whitney erc…. u know what i mean ?”
i would buy it if it was in holland
aer u sure ur not just giving it a good review because u interviewd her?
I’m getting it! ^__^
Beyonce’s singles will leak this week.
damn people just say no if you have to go on about not liking her then you need to get a life. work michelle
I’d buy it
going to buy my copy now!

i downloaded it months ago lol i hated it then. i loved we break the dawn and unexpected…thats about it not buying…get back wit dc!!! i would def buy that cd
I WILL MOST DEFINETLY BE BUYING AND MICHELLE DON’T LISTEN TO THESE NEGATIVE COMMENTS CAUSE YOU STILL THE S*** RATHER SELL 1 COPY OR A MILLION!!!
its good, REALLLLLY GOOD, I got mines already this mortin’….GO HEAD MICHELLE!!!
Not a chance, maybe if she decided to re-do a new single or two on top of it for a re-release. But, right now as it is I don’t really like it, sadly. So no, I won’t be buying it.
LOVE MICHELLE….yea i downloaded it a while back but i still couldnt wait for 2day to come…i went and got my copy this mornin before work….THE CD IS OFF THE CHAIN…if u don have it yet…GO GET IT becuz it is SOOOOOO “UNEXPECTED”

theres no comparison FIRST OFF RIHANNA CANT SING. MICHELLE IS ALRIGHT BUT CAN BARELY.. BUT IF IT WAS A CONTEST OBVIOUSLY MICHELLE WINS. RIHANNA IS TO DIGITALLY ENHANCED AND CANT EVEN PERFORM LIVE.
