  • 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]
  2. 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.
  3. 70
    Unexpected is natural, pleasant and brutally honest, opening the eyes of those who slept on Williams' skills.
  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.
