After months of anticipation, Beyoncé’s long-awaited seventh studio album, Renaissance, has been released to the public. It’s her first solo album in six years, following the critically acclaimed visual album Lemonade, which was released in 2013. Preliminary evaluations have indicated that Renaissance represents a new musical direction for the worldwide superstar.

Beyoncé said the following about Renaissance on her website: “During the epidemic, this three-act work was recorded over a period of three years. A moment to reflect, but also one in which I felt the most inspired to create, “that the current release is only part one in a trilogy

“BREAK MY SOUL,” a dance-inspired track with Big Freedia and a sample of Robin S.’s “Show Me Love” from 1990, was released last month as a surprise single from the album.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our culture, especially the pioneers and fallen angels who have gone unacknowledged for far too long, as stated on her website.

It was traditional of Beyonce to keep facts about the album under wraps for more than a week before its release. She turned to social media to inform the world about the initiative, including its formal announcement, which occurred after she removed her social media profile images.

This album was leaked online just two days before its official release, despite Beyoncé’s track record of releasing precisely what she wants, when she wants, and no more. Some fans claimed that they had spotted the CD for sale before of time in media outlets in France and The Netherlands.

Just days before the album’s official release, she responded to the leak and the social media reaction it sparked by writing: “I thank you for calling out everyone who was attempting to sneak into the club early… we are going to take our time and enjoy the music.” As a result, the album is being released without any accompanying films, unlike the visual-heavy launches of Lemonade in 2016 and the self-titled album in 2013.

Beyonce’s statement on her website states, “My objective was to establish a safe environment, a place without judgement.” “A safe haven from the pressures of perfection and overthinking. In a place where you may shout, let go, and feel liberated. It was a wonderful adventure of discovery. I hope this music brings you joy. I hope it encourages you to let go of the jiggle. Ha! And to know that you are beautiful, powerful, and attractive just the way you are.”
