But in her new album, RENAISSANCE, she is taking on a different style of music that has a different message. Beyonce’s latest album is a celebration queer culture and dance music and includes songs that pay homage to Black and queer musical icons.
Beyonce has been in the music business for more than two decades. She has been inspired by Black artists who influenced dance music in the ’70s, such as Donna Summers. She wrote songs about her own escapism as well as freedom for her new album. She also spoke about her desire to release an album that is not influenced by perfection or judgment.
Beyonce’s Renaissance album is an ode to Black queer pioneers of dance music. It’s a sensual, joyful, and joyous release. It’s one of the most explicit albums she’s ever released. It includes Black and queer musical icons, and blends post-1970s Black dance music styles. You can also find some drag-themed soundbites from Moi Renee.
Beyonce’s debut single from the album, “Break My Soul” was a smash hit for the club. It’s also the sole single released by Queen B from the album.

It’s a smooth groove that is comprised of wood blocks and Beyonce dances into the pockets of marching drums in an extremely cool move. The album is available on Tidal and Spotify.

She was influenced by her uncle, but she also dreamed of adventure. She wanted to make an album that was not influenced by judgement and that was a reflection of Black and queer music icons.
