  • Summary: The third solo album for the former Destiny's Child member features Flo Rida as a guest on one track.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 5
  2. Negative: 1 out of 5
  1. Although the album's effervescent club feel tapers off near the end, when the songs grow forumlaic, the album's charm could still give Williams a shot at the charts. [10 Oct 2008, p.71]

    Unexpected is natural, pleasant and brutally honest, opening the eyes of those who slept on Williams' skills.
  3. Unexpected does boast a handful of shiny electro-R&B gems ("Hello Heartbreak," "We Break the Dawn") that make Williams' journey from church to club as enjoyable as it was inevitable.
  4. Unexpected is a fairly decent album and by far the least pretentious, unashamedly pop record to be made by a DC member so far.
  5. Cutting to the chase, this album is full of Rihanna b-sides that sound like a carbon copy of everything in the charts right now and are completely personality free.
