Beyonce’s latest album is a celebration of queer culture and dance music and includes songs that pay tribute to Black and queer music icons.

Her new album she composed songs about her own freedom and the pleasure of escapism. She also spoke about her desire to release an album without judgment or perfectionism.

It’s among her most explicit albums. It features Black and queer icons of music, and blends post-1970s Black dance music styles. There are also some drag-themed soundbites by Moi Renee.
As the first single from the album, Beyonce released “Break My Soul”” an anthem for clubs. But it’s also the only track released by Queen B from the album.
