Beyoncé’s much-anticipated seventh album, RenaissanceNow available for the world to listen to. The 16-track LP marks her first solo album in 6 years, following the pivotal visual album Lemonade. Critics, including Sydney Madden and NPR Music’s Ann Powers, have said about the previews that Renaissance Denotes the musical development of the world star.
Renaissance It includes guest features from Grace Jones, Tems, and BEAM, as well as a variety of credits from the music industry’s big hitters, including many from The-Dream, a collaborator on “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” and producer Mike Dean, Profiles of Drake and Raphael Sadiq.
On her website, Beyoncé wrote about Renaissance“This three-act project was logged over three years during the pandemic. It’s a time that lingers but also a time I’ve found my most creative,” noting that the new edition is the first of three parts.
Last month, I was surprised to drop one song from the record, “BREAK MY SOUL,” an energetic track rooted in dance music influences, featuring Big Freedia and a sampler of 1990’s house divas “Show Me Love” by Robin S.
“Thank you to all the pioneers who grew up the culture, to all the fallen angels whose contributions have not been recognized for so long,” the statement continues on her website.
In typical Bey fashion, not many details about the album were revealed more than a week before its release. And she headed to social networking sites to inform the world about the project, including the official announcement of it, which came after the removal of profile pictures through its pages on social networking sites.
I clicked on the leak link and the first song on Beyoncé’s album was saying “So, you can’t wait, right?” Then she re-read my title before the song started.

Despite her proven ability to give the world exactly what Beyoncé wants when she wants Beyoncé, nothing more, nothing less, the new album was leaked online just two days before its release; Some fans claimed to have seen the CD go on sale early in media stores in France and the Netherlands.
She addressed the leak and the backlash from sick fans they received on social media, in a post ahead of the album’s actual release, writing: “I appreciate you inviting anyone who was trying to sneak into the club early… We’ll take our time and enjoy the music.” To this end, the album is initially released without videos, unlike the visual-heavy versions of Lemonade 2016 and the album self-titled in 2013.
“My intention was to create a place that is safe, a place that does not pass judgment,” Beyoncé’s statement read on her website. “A place without perfection and overthinking. A place to scream and release and feel free. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to shake off the vibration. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong and sexy as you are.”
