  • Beyoncé - RENAISSANCE



    Alternative Cover:



    Tracklist:



    Per Apple Music:


    The queen has returned, and she comes bearing an uplifting message of release. On “BREAK MY SOUL,” which samples Robin S. as well as Big Freedia, Beyoncé offers wall-to-wall affirmations atop a four-on-the-floor house production. Extra stress? Get rid of it. Aimless anger? Let it go. “You won’t break my soul,” she triumphantly proclaims on the hook, compelling all who listen to welcome that power into their lives and move accordingly. With this the first glimpse of her upcoming album RENAISSANCE, expect to find liberation on the dance floor when the full album arrives on July 29.


    ------------------------------------------

    Original Post:

    Might as well start an album thread.

    The album seems to be coming out today.

    If you search for "B7" on her website there are now two placeholders (possibly for the standard and deluxe versions).

    If you also search for "June 11" the same placeholder shows up. It doesn't show up on any other date.

    Her social media profiles are deleted everywhere, hinting at the new campaign launch.

    The timing coincides with the vinyl rumours (vinyl take around six month to produce and she was looking into them in December).

    And finally, if you search for "The Once & Future Beyoncé" on google (which was the name of her Harper's Bazaar issue), the first result is a blank page on her website. This could be a hint at the rumoured medieval theme as well, as the title reference's T.H. White's The Once & Future King which is about King Arthur.

    Not convinced the album is dropping today, but the lead single, album announcement and tour details will probably be released.

    It’ll be interesting to see how this rolls out though. I’d quite like a campaign like Harry Styles’ but I suspect they’re going for longevity with Bey: start off with streaming + digital sales then release the physical a few weeks later to keep the momentum going (possibly with exclusive tracks?)

    Who even knows. But I’m so here for The Once and Future King inspiration - for those unfamiliar with the book, it’s the source material for ‘Disney’s Sword In The Stone’ (one of my favourites), and the 1960s musical ‘Camelot’.

      I just hope there’s some catchy songs in this era.

            I personally prefer a single/tour announcement for now to be honest. Going against BTS with not even a full week's sales is classic Bey self-sabotage.

              Not to mention the Tidal exclusives she’s bound to offer. You just know if there’s a standard and deluxe, Tidal’s getting the deluxe

                        Omiros Oops, didn't know you already posted. I'm rarely here these days.

                        But yeah, I'm excited. The Renaissance reference she/her team's been hinting got me intrigued.

                          Yeah, I really liked Harry's campaign for Harry's House as well - I thought the overall rollout was really great. I do think the gap between the single and the album was too long, but hey it worked in the end.

                          Although with Harry, the whole cryptic website thingy with the door image or something (I forgot exactly what it was, but I remember reading about it) was great for his demographic because they're young & they love to overanalyze every single thing - same with BTS fans, etc.

                          But us Beyonce fans are old now, we have life & bills to play so we have no time analyzing hints like this. Just give us a concrete announcement, Bey!
