You may think you know gospel music, but you've never heard it done like this before. Listen below to "Say Yes" an island-tinged praise track that sees Michelle Williams, Beyonce and Kelly Rowland (aka Destiny's Child) reuniting for the first time in nearly a year. An early version of the track was played by a radio station last month, but now we have the final version.
Each DC member handles an inspirational verse over a zippy, reggae-dance beat. While Bey usually led the trio back in the day, it's a fun treat to hear Williams take the reigns from the opening line. The track is centered around a call-and-response chorus, seeing the Jesus Christ Superstar performer yell, "When Jesus say yes, nobody can say no!" prompting a chorus to repeat the line back to her.
It all sort of makes us want to twerk and throw our hands to heavens at the same time. Is that weird? Whatever, just Say Yes to the blessed!
"Say Yes" is the latest offering from Williams' forthcoming gospel record Journey to Freedom. We heard her soul-stirring single "If We Had Your Eyes" last June, but this is the first time we've heard the three Destiny's Child members join forces since "You've Changed," lifted off Kelly's Talk a Good Game LP.
