Music icon Beyoncé has revealed the release date for her highly anticipated seventh studio album.

Since her debut with Destiny’s Child in the 90s, Mrs Carter has captivated music listeners worldwide.

From her iconic music videos to her groundbreaking album catalogue, the multi-hyphenate artist has thoroughly made her mark as a legend in the music industry.

Over the last six years, the Crazy In Love singer has focused on other ventures, such as her successful clothing brand IVY PARK and collaborative albums, including Everything Is Love and Black Is King.

However on 9 June, the music juggernaut stopped the world when she removed her profile pictures across her social media platforms.

At the time, one Twitter user wrote: “If Beyoncé drops an album tonight at midnight, I’m unavailable for the rest of the month.”


While the move certainly turned heads, Queen B remained mum on the topic until a few days later.

On 14 June, Beyoncé surprised fans when she revealed that her seventh studio album would be titled Renaissance – which is set to be released on 29 July.

The Partition singer also updated her website and posted four mysterious boxes for sale.

Per the description, the box is set to include the Renaissance CD, a 28-page photo booklet, a collectable mini-poster, and a Renaissance shirt – which will feature a different pose across the four available boxes.

Even though details surrounding the 16-track album are under wraps, Beyoncé gave fans some information regarding the album in her 2021 interview with Harper’s Bazar.

“With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible,” she told the publication.

“I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. 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. Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio.”

Here’s how fans reacted to the Beyoncé’s forthcoming Renaissance era.
