The ladies of Destiny’s Child have joined forces again, with Beyoncé Knowles and Kelly Rowland providing vocals on Michelle Williams’ new EDM-tinged gospel number, “Say Yes.”

Below, you can take a listen to “Say Yes,” which reimagines the Nigerian gospel song, “When Jesus Says Yes,” with bouncing percussion and punctual synths that drop into heavenly horn stabs, as well as the trio’s always potent harmonies. According to Miss Info, Williams, Beyoncé and Rowland recently shot a video for “Say Yes,” which will appear on Williams’ upcoming solo effort, Journey to Freedom, slated for release later this year. As Williams pointed out herself, the below version has yet to be mixed and mastered.

“Say Yes” is not the first time Destiny’s Child has reunited since the group split in 2005: Most notably, Beyoncé welcomed Rowland and Williams on stage during her bombastic performance at the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show, where they performed a new track, “Nuclear,” off their compilation, Love Songs. Beyoncé and Williams also appeared on Rowland’s “You’ve Changed,” from her 2013 album, Talk a Good Game.

Last month, Williams also premiered the video for another album cut, “Fire.” Along with Journey to Freedom, the singer will be appearing this summer in the national tour of Jesus Christ Superstar alongside N’Sync’s JC Chasez, Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols/Public Image Ltd. and Incubus‘ Brandon Boyd.
