“Be Alive” was written for the soundtrack to King Richard, Will Smith’s upcoming biopic about Serena and Venus Williams’ father. The actor spoke to Entertainment Weekly about collaborating with Queen Bey on the song (which will soundtrack King Richard’s closing credits), saying Beyoncé called him after watching a screening of the movie.

“The marriage of a movie and a song is a kind of magic that’s unmatched in entertainment,” he explained. “I was so happy when Beyoncé called.”

Check out the full lyrics, via Genius:

[Intro]
It feels so good to be alive
Got all my family by my side
Couldn’t wipe this black off if I tried
That’s why I lift my head with pride

[Verse 1]
I got a million miles on me
They want to see how far I go
The path was never paved with gold (Gold)
We worked and built this on our own (Own)

[Pre-Chorus]
And can’t nobody knock it if they tried
This is hustle personified
Look how we’ve been fighting to stay alive
So when we win, we will have pride
Do you know how much we have cried?
How hard we had to fight?

[Chorus]
It feels so good to be alive (It feels so, so, so, so good)
Got all my sisters by my side (I got all my sisters by my side)
Couldn’t wipe this black off if I tried (Black off if I tried)
That’s why I lift my hеad with pride
Now we’re sitting on top of thе world again, huh

[Verse 2]
I got a million miles on me
They want to see how far I’ll go (They want to see how far I’ll go)
The path was never paved with gold (No)
We fought and built this on our own (We fought and built this on our own, own)

[Pre-Chorus]
And can’t nobody knock it if they tried
This is hustle personified
Look how we’ve been fighting to stay alive
So when we win, we will have pride
Do you know how much we have cried?
How hard we had to fight?

[Chorus]
It feels so good to be alive (It feels so good, so good)
Got all my family by my side (And we gon’ sit on top of the world again)
Couldn’t wipe this black off if I tried (And I wouldn’t trade nothin’, and I wouldn’t trade nothin’)
That’s why I lift my head with pride (So baby, lift your head, yeah)
It feels so good to be alive (Darling, it’s a celebration for you, yeah)
I got the tribe all by my side (You’re doin’ everything they said you couldn’t do)
Couldn’t wipe this black off if I tried
That’s why I lift my head with pride (Lift your head, yeah)

[Outro]
Woo!
(Ooh)
(Ooh, I tried)
(Oh!)
