Michelle Williams delves deeper into Dance/Pop with her new buzz single, ‘Love Gun’. Produced by Druski, the record is the first glimpse of the upcoming “Inspirational Pop” album due this winter.
Other producers contributing tracks to the project include Jim Jonsin and Rico Love, both of whom worked on Williams’ Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland’s ‘Here I Am’ LP. Listen to ‘Love Gun’ below:
Although this record will fit nicely with the current Dance/Pop trend, I must admit that I was hoping for an R&B record from Williams. Given her raspy vocals and astounding range (see ‘Through With Love’ from the ‘Destiny’s Fulfilled’ album), she could easily have put forward a gritty R&B/Soul album similar to Fantasia’s ‘Back To Me’.
However, it is understandable that Williams would use the Pop trend to her advantage. At this stage in the game, R&B music is a risk that few artists are willing to try.
Props to Concrete Loop for the track!
