The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the first official photo from the shoot, which took place in late May. All three members can be seen performing at what appears to be a house party.
“It was so much fun,” said Williams. “It was like we were little kids again. I have their back and they have mine. They have showed themselves to be loyal to me time after time. They have proven they are my sisters time and time again.”
Once word got out, they could no longer keep it a secret. “We filmed at somebody’s house and they probably got excited and called their cousins and friends and, next thing you know, the whole town was on one street,” she said.
So how did the unofficial reunion happen? “They received an advance copy of the album and called saying, ‘We love ‘When Jesus Says Yes’ … there has to be a Destiny’s Child mix of the song,’” explained Williams. “Kelly did it and Beyoncé got right in the studio and did her part. I kept it a secret because I didn’t want anyone to know until it was time.”
The Harmony Samuels-produced song will appear on Williams’ third album Journey to Freedom, due in September.
“This is an urban inspiration record so sonically it’s very urban with pop infusion in there,” said Williams. “I made sure that every genre of music I have ever done is represented on there.”
