Stream Beyonce’s Album ‘Renaissance’ – News Kidda

Beyoncé returns with Renaissanceher highly anticipated seventh studio album, which she released Friday through Columbia Records and Parkwood Entertainment.

She left fans a note about: Renaissance on its official website hours before Act 1 fell Friday night. “This three-act project was shot for three years during the pandemic. A time to be quiet, but also a time that I found most creative,” she began. “Making this album gave me a place to dream and escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous at a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free from perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, let go, feel freedom. It was a wonderful voyage of discovery.”

The project also includes the lead single “Break My Soul,” which features a sample of Robin S.’s 1993 house classic “Show Me Love” and Big Freedia’s 2014 track “Explode,” which highlights her signature bounce music. “Break My Soul” peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Bey’s 20th solo top 10 hit on the chart. Renaissance also marks her first solo album since 2016’s Lemonade, which became #1 on the Billboard 200.

Queen Bey ended the post on her site with this statement: “To all my fans: I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to let go of the wobble. Ha! And to make you feel just as unique, strong and sexy as you are. Love you all, B.”
