The girls are back together again.

Yesterday, Michelle Williams released short audio clips featuring her friends and former bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé, having virtual “check-ins” during the COVID-19 pandemic. The short clips were released to celebrate the release of Williams’s new book, Checking In, in which she documents her personal mental health journey.

“Look who checked in yesterday with me!!” wrote Williams alongside one of the clips on Instagram. “The only time we’ll let y'all eavesdrop on our group chats!! 😂 #checkingin #thereunionyallhavebeenwaitingfor.”

“Oh, we love and miss you so much,” Beyoncé says in the recording. “We’re so proud of you, Mimi! You are so inspirational for both of us, and we just love watching you become exactly who you are and the world [to] see your impact, wisdom, and beautiful advice.”

In another clip, Williams asks both friends how they’ve spent their time during quarantine and even teases Beyoncé to see if she has plans to release any new music. In addition to the sound bite, Williams shared a never-before-seen photo of the trio posing with Rowland’s newborn son, Noah Weatherspoon, whom she welcomed back in January.

“Are you making some musical soup right now?” Williams quips.

“I’m cooking some music—that’s Chef Boyarbee and Chef Boy-Kelly,” Beyoncé says before bursting into a fit of laughter. “You know I’m editing that shit out,” she adds.

The women also express how grateful they are to have had their friendship last decades, surviving career changes, the tenacious music industry, and starting their own families.

“It’s okay to not be okay. And it’s okay to tell somebody you’re not okay. Because I honestly should have done that with y’all. I’ve been open about a lot of things, but I never was really truthful about how I really was,” Williams reveals. “Even though y’all have proven to be safe friends, safe sisters, sometimes people have to know that you’re not going to be looked at differently if you say, ‘Y’all, I’ve been really sad too long. Something’s going on.’”

Beyoncé adds that she’s confident the trio’s friendship will stand the test of time.

“Kelly and I feel so honored that we are now your safe place where you can express any and everything,” Beyoncé says. “We know that you are that for us, and you’ve always been that for us, so we’re just happy to be along this journey and happy to witness the birth in your new chapter. … It’s 20 years [of friendship]. It ain’t going nowhere.”
