When Does Beyoncé’s New Album Renaissance Drop? Features, Length, Reviews

Beyoncé recently revealed that her highly anticipated seventh solo album, Renaissance, is about to drop.

It's the singer's first album since her critically acclaimed Lemonade, which dropped all the way back in 2016.

Considering fans have waited six years for another album from the Grammy Award-winning artist, they are understandably buzzing about the news.

Beyoncé gave an insight into what the record would sound like when she spoke to Harper's Bazaar in August last year.

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

When does the record drop?

Beyoncé said Renaissance would be released on July 29.

How many songs are on the album?

The singer has mentioned that Renaissance is 'act i', which suggests there could be multiple parts to this album rollout.

The Apple Music listing indicates this first 'act' will have 16 tracks. 

A Renaissance box set has already sold out on the singer's website, which includes a CD, T-shirt, a 28-page photo booklet, and a mini-poster. 

Have there been any reviews so far?

There haven't been any official reviews for Renaissance just yet.

However, in her July cover story with Vogue, Beyoncé played the album in full to editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.

He had nothing but good words to say about the record, writing: "Soaring vocals and fierce beats combine and in a split second I'm transported back to the clubs of my youth.

"I want to get up and start throwing moves. It's music I love to my core… music that makes you rise, that turns your mind to cultures and subcultures, to our people past and present, music that will unite so many on the dance floor."

Have any songs been released yet?

Shortly after the announcement, she released the album's first single, 'Break My Soul'.

The dance track set the tone for the album with a classic house synth line and a vocal sample of Big Freedia's 'Explode'.

Variety has since reported that the record is due to feature both 'dance and country-leaning' tracks.

Who will be on the album?

Beyoncé hasn't revealed who will feature on the 16 tracks (if any).

However, there are fan theories buzzing around social media pointing to artists that could end up on the record.

One theory suggests the Virgo Season yearbook on the singer's website, featuring artists like Jennifer Hudson, Jungkook, and Nas, might allude to future collaborations.
