Beyoncé, one of the greatest queens in pop history, announced last Tuesday, June 21, that she was returning to the stage with a new album, Renaissance, which will be available very soon. However, the announcement did not come alone, as that same midnight she premiered Break My Soul, one of the album’s main songs.
Renaissance will arrive this summer. In fact, the singer announced that Act 1 will be available on July 29, and it has already been confirmed that the album would be divided into two parts, which only raises the hype before the great return of an artist like Beyoncé. In addition, behind all this album there is a very special meaning for the singer that is reflected even in the cover of her album.
In networks, the artist has explained that the creation of this album has taken her on a journey of exploration for herself because it has allowed her to dream and create with freedom at a time when the world was barely in motion. Indeed, she was referring to the period of global confinement due to the Coronavirus pandemic. As Beloncé herself explains, it was a scary time when everything was uncertain, and within that moment, she found the inspiration to create Renaissance.
The change in sound has been evident, as it uses more current rhythms although some influence of the music of the nineties is denoted, and how could it be otherwise, Break My Soul has become an immediate success. In Spotify’s Global Top 5, the song is at number 16, and in just 24 hours it reached 5 million plays on Youtube.
It is precisely in this preview where the house melody is noticed as a great novelty in Beyincé’s style. And the truth is that after six years of absence since the release of Lemonade, many already thought that the singer’s musical life was over, but here she is, back, to prove that we still have Beyoncé for a while.
