After some eight years apart, Destiny’s Child have reunited twice in the last year: they started the year by unveiling “Nuclear”, off their career-spanning Love Songs compilation, and then reconvened in the summer for “You’ve Changed”, from Kelly Rowland’s solo album Talk a Good Game. Now, with Michelle Williams readying her latest solo effort, entitled Journey to Freedom, the trio, with Solange in tow, join forces once more on “Say Yes!”.
As Miss Info points out, the song is actually a remix of the Nigerian gospel song “When Jesus Says Yes”. Still it’s not exactly your standard church hymnal, as the pulsating rhythms sound like some shimmery hybrid of electro-pop and salsa music.
