Unique, strong, and sexy—that’s how Beyoncé wants you to feel while listening to Renaissance.
Crafted during the grips of the pandemic, her seventh solo album is a celebration of freedom and a complete immersion into house and dance that serves as the perfect sound bed for themes of liberation, release, self-assuredness, and unfiltered confidence across its 16 tracks.
Renaissance is playful and energetic in a way that captures that Friday-night, just-got-paid, anything-can-happen feeling, underscored by reiterated appeals to unyoke yourself from the weight of others’ expectations and revel in the totality of who you are.
From the classic four-on-the-floor house moods of the Robin S. and Big Freedia-sampling lead single “Break My Soul” to the Afro-tech of the Grace Jones– and Tems-assisted “Move” and the funky, rollerskating disco feeling of “Cuff It” this is a massive yet elegantly composed buffet of sound, richly packed with anthemic morsels that pull you in.
