Michelle Williams Reveals “Say Yes” Producer, Beyonce Snapped On Set & A Live Performance

Michelle Williams killed off that tiresome #PoorMichelle meme once and for all yesterday (May 21) when new single “Say Yes” surfaced online. Not only does the catchy toe-tapper feature Beyonce and Kelly Rowland (and thus reunite Destiny’s Child), it also expertly bridges the gap between gospel and popular music. This could be the first song of praise to crossover since Mary Mary‘s “Shackles (Praise You)” in 2000.

After keeping mum about the leak, Michelle jumped on her awesome Twitter and thanked fans for their support but explained that the version being shared online is unmixed and unmastered. She also revealed that “Say Yes” was produced by Harmony Samuels (the man behind Ariana Grande‘s “The Way”) and is based on a popular Nigerian hymn. See the DC diva’s tweets after the jump as well as a pic of Beyonce arriving at the video shoot and an awesome solo performance of the song from late 2013.
