Ok, Destiny’s Child is not officially reunited.
But Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé Knowles did just prove, again, that they still know how to come together for some of that old DC magic Wednesday (May 21) with the release of the very uplifting, “Say Yes!”
The song, which is the lead single for Williams’ upcoming fourth solo album, Journey to Freedom, is a remake of a time-honored Nigerian gospel hymn, “When Jesus Says Yes.”
This ain’t your typical church song, though. The ladies manage to lift up Jesus while singing in perfect harmony over a very catchy, uptempo, and dare I say it, pop beat, with a classic choir chorus: “When Jesus says yes, nobody can say no/ When Jesus says yes, nobody can say no.”
Michelle takes the lead, then passes the baton to Bey, who then lets Kelly sing anchor leg, each singing the phrase, “I’m not worried about a thing, cause I know you are guiding me/where you lead me Lord I will go, I have no fear cause I know who’s in control.”
According to Hot 97’s Miss Info, the triumvirate also shot a video for the record to support Michelle’s new LP, which is slated to arrive later this year.
