Beyoncé announces new album ‘Renaissance’ and release date

Beyhive, this is not an exercise.

On Wednesday evening, Beyoncé announced that her highly anticipated seventh studio album, Renaissance, will be released on July 29. The announcement comes shortly after the singer sparked fans’ suspicions by deleting the profile pictures on her social media accounts – suggesting something big is afoot.

The ‘Formation’ artist broke the news via her social media bio, which now read: ‘act i RENAISSANCE 7.29’. Tidal, the music streaming platform co-owned by Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z, also shared the title and release date on social media.

Renaissance will be released six years after Beyoncé’s last studio album Lemonade. This groundbreaking project was nominated for nine Grammy Awards, including record (“Formation”), song (“Formation”) and album of the year. In 2020, Rolling Stone ranked “Lemonade” at number 32 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Since 2018’s Lemonade, Beyoncé has been busy headlining Coachella (dubbed “Beychella” by fans) and releasing a Grammy-winning Netflix documentary, Homecoming. She also starred as Nala in Disney’s 2019 remake of The Lion King and recorded an entire tandem album — including the Golden Globe-nominated song “Spirit” — for the film.

The following year, Beyoncé co-wrote, co-directed, and executive produced Black Is King, a visual version of her Lion King album. And in 2021, the visionary musician became the artist with the most Grammys of all time after accepting the award for her R&B performance for her hit single “Black Parade.”

Most recently, the music icon opened the 2022 Oscars with a stunning live performance of “Be Alive” – ​​her song from the movie “King Richard” – filmed on a public tennis court in Compton.

Ahead of the debut of Renaissance, Beyoncé will grace the July cover of British Vogue. The singer told the fashion magazine that creating new music has been a lengthy process, which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, giving her more time to consider and reconsider every decision. Beyoncé’s royal British Vogue cover and profile hits newsstands June 21.

Of course, the Beyhive has been humming non-stop since the album title came up. Although “Renaissance” has already received more advance promotion than some of her other surprise releases, fans remain impressed by Queen B’s unique ability to sell a product without even trying.

“Only Beyoncé, a woman who’s been in the game for 25 years, could rock the whole WORLD (again!) after midnight to charge $40 for CDs with no music, no artwork, no tracklist, no trailer, and no visuals.” one person tweeted. “AND WE WILL ALL BUY IT!”

“Beyoncé makes people buy boxes without knowing what’s in them during inflation.” wrote Philip Lewis, Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post’s front page. “Your power.”
