Michelle Williams, one third of on-hiatus R&B trio Destiny's Child, is currently in London playing Roxie Hart in Chicago. Whilst a reissue of her last record Unexpected is on the cards, she has also begun working on her next studio record.
As most people will know, Michelle is (mis-)managed by Matthew Knowles' Music World Management. She is signed to Columbia both as part of Destiny's Child and as a solo artist. Her first two solo records, Heart To Yours and Do You Know were released through Sanctuary/Columbia, topping Gospel and Contemporary Christian charts and selling a combined 350,000 in the US alone. Her third solo record, Unexpected, was released through Music World/Columbia and sold 54,000 worldwide.
In addition to Chicago, she has also previously starred in The Color Purple and Aida, and made small participations on some US TV series. According to recent interview with That Grape Juice, she has also been meetinng with a movie producer and is looking at some scripts.
Today she was out with infamous record producer Quincy Jones and his girlfriend fashion designer Heba Elawadi, and is set to work with Amadeus, a producer recently signed to Bad Boy. Her next album most likely will be in the same mainstream radio-ready vein as Unexpected, and I wouldn't be surprised if she worked with some of the same people. Prior to Unexpected, she worked on an album called Phoenix, which was along a more traditional R&B/Soul/Inspirational route. Although Phoenix was shelved Michelle has hinted in the past that she could, potentially, put it out at any time. She has also recorded a duet with Ultra Nate which is, as of yet, unreleased. Furthermore, she recorded some new tracks for the US re-release of Unexpected, so between these new tracks and the unused Phoenix tracks she could very well be only a few tracks away from having enough material for her 4th album.
Personally I love Michelle, she's got the full package - she can sing, she can act, she can dance, she writes songs, she's sweet, likeable, sexy, sassy, vibrant. I support her 100% and can't wait for whatever's next!
