Laying BeyHive speculations to rest, Queen Bey officially posted a July 29, 2022 date for her new project titled “Renaissance.” This much anticipated first drop of solo music comes five years after the celebrity singer released “Lemonade” that was not only her sixth solo album but was also a surprise release. Renaissance will be Beyoncé’s seventh solo album and “act i” implied that it is a part of a bigger project or it could be a multi-part project.
Less than two weeks ago, there were a lot of rumors swirling around as the celebrity singer’s social media profile pictures went blank. This was similar to what happened before the Lemonade drop. On June 15, BeyGOOd Foundation posted a message on Twitter, as it is Black Music Month.
The tweet had a collage of iconic albums. One of the albums pictured in the image, at the bottom right of the collage referenced “B7” an album by Brandy in 2020. Members of the BeyHive connected the dots and reached a conclusion that Beyoncé was going to release her seventh album.
Fans will be able to order four box sets of the multiple Grammy award winner, on Beyoncé’s official website. Each set will consists of a T-shirt (4 different ones for four boxes), a CD, a 28-page photo booklet and a mini poster. The website says that the product “begins shipping July 29th upon album release.” This suggests that the full project will be released on July 29.
Last August, Beyoncé appeared on the cover story of Harper’s Bazaar. She had teased about the album when she spoke of how everyone was ready to get into activities as the pandemic slowed down and people were getting back to their lives.
The celebrity singer with 28 Grammys told the outlet, “I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible.” Beyoncé also mentioned that she had been in the studio for a year and a half and that “the music is coming.”
