Beyoncé fãs, rejoice!
Abre sobre ser pai novamente mais tarde na vida, 40, officially released her seventh studio album Renascimento as the clock struck midnight early Friday morning.
Featuring previously released lead single “Quebre minha alma,” que caiu no mês passado, the dance-heavy LP features 15 other tracks: “Eu sou aquela garota,” “Aconchegante,” “Superestrela alienígena,” “Algemar,” “Energia” featuring BEAM, “Garota da Igreja,” “Plástico fora do sofá,” “Sulco de Virgem,” “Jogada” featuring Grace Jones and Tems, “Aquecido,” “Ética,” “Tudo em sua mente,” “A América tem um problema,” “Mel puro” e “Renascimento de verão.”
In contrast to the ultra-personal material of her previous solo album, 2016'S Limonada, the songs on Renascimento are clearly crafted for dance floors and laden with mainly confident, often sexy lyrics about celebrating your identity and having fun. “Comfortable in my skin / Cozy with who I am / eu me amo, goddamn,” Beyoncé declares on “Cozy.”
Contudo, she seems to reference her relationship with JAY-Z and its rumored turbulence — widely believed to have inspired Limonada — a couple of brief times throughout the record. “If you keep playing with my heart, Garoto / I’m just as petty as you are,” ela canta em “Heated.”
“Plástico fora do sofá,” Enquanto isso, seems to nod to some of the public’s perception of the couple following the confessional album. “We don’t need the world’s acceptance / They’re too hard on me, they’re too hard on you, Garoto,” she says in the first verse. “I’ll always be your secret weapon in your arsenal, your arsenal.”
Em um mensagem shared ahead of RenascimentoLançamento, Beyoncé revealed the album will be part of a “three-act project.”
Ela escreveu: “This three-act project was recorded over three years during the pandemic. A time to be still, but also a time I found to be the most creative. Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world.”

Beyoncé surprised fans late last month by revealing the cover art para Renascimento. Na imagem, the 28-time Grammy-winner is seen sitting atop a silver horse with what appears to be an electric current flowing inside its body. Beyoncé is nearly nude as she wears what looks like a silver, spiked chain that covers her breasts, runs down her stomach and loops back around her backside with matching silver heels. The look is complemented by her long, crimped hair.
“Criar este álbum me permitiu um lugar para sonhar e encontrar uma fuga durante um momento assustador para o mundo. Permitiu que eu me sentisse livre e aventureiro em uma época em que pouco mais se movia,” a “Amor no topo” músico escreveu no instagram, showing off the cover art. “Minha intenção era criar um lugar seguro, um lugar sem julgamento. Um lugar para ser livre de perfeccionismo e pensamento excessivo.”
Ela continuou, “Um lugar para gritar, liberar, sinta a liberdade. Foi uma bela jornada de exploração. Espero que você encontre alegria nesta música. Espero que inspire você a liberar o movimento. Há! E para se sentir tão único, Forte, e sexy como você é.”

Beyoncé previously chatted with Bazar do harpista for its September 2021 história de capa, where she touched upon new music.
In the story, she included a “renaissance” mention, telling the publication, “With all the isolation and injustice over the past year [from COVID-19], I think we are all ready to escape, viajar por, amar, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible.”
Beyoncé then told Bazar do harpista que ela tinha “been in the studio for a year and a half,” anotando, “Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies.”
Added Beyoncé: “Ainda, there’s nothing like the amount of love, paixão, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. Depois 31 anos, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. sim, the music is coming!”
