The three former members of Destiny’s Child are keeping busy these days.
Beyoncé just topped the Billboard 200 with her latest release 4; Kelly Rowland has been doing well with the release of her single “Motivation,” featuring Lil Wayne; and today, Michelle Williams dropped a new single,”Love Gun,” which is set to be included on her upcoming fourth studio album, slated for a fall release.
While Williams focused on gospel on her first two solo albums, the synth-laden “Love Gun” has a similar vibe to the dancey tracks on her last album, Unexpected, which spawned two hit dance singles in “We Break the Dawn”—actually, a personal fave of mine—and “The Greatest.”
Williams calls “Love Gun” “inspirational pop.” “Think of Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’ or Natasha Bedingfield’s ‘Unwritten,’” she said in a statement. “Music with a message but at the same time fun and will get people dancing.”
