In 2021, during an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, when Beyonce was asked about her new music, she stated that, in light of the recent isolation and injustice, we should all be prepared to leave, travel, love, and laugh once again. Queen Bey also stated at the time that she believes a Renaissance is on the horizon and that she wants to be a part of it in whatever way she can. The musician said at the time that she had been in the studio for a year and a half, working on her new songs and that nothing compares to the amount of love, passion, and healing she experiences in the studio.

Beyonce continued that it still feels as exciting as when she started, which was at the age of nine. She mentioned that for her to make music, it sometimes takes a year as she searches through thousands of sounds to find the right one that suits her the best and shared that one chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. The Grammy winning artist is all set to discuss about her upcoming album in a British Vogue interview on June 21st who has described Beyonce's Renaissance as one of the most ambitious musical project till date. 

According to Variety, Beyonce's Renaissance will likely feature tracks that are leaning towards dance and country music, chances of contributions from mega-songwriter Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote Beyonce's 2008 smash "Halo" and has penned singles for Adele, Taylor Swift, the Jonas Brothers, and his band, OneRepublic. Raphael Saadiq is also expected to be a part of the album, Raphael has created songs for Mary J. Blige, D'Angelo, Stevie Wonder, John Legend, and Andra Day, in addition to his excellent solo albums.

The British Vogue mentions the album's "soaring vocals and ferocious beats," and says it's music that makes you rise, that takes your thoughts to cultures and subcultures, music that will connect so many on the dance floor and make them fall in love.

Even though she did not release any of her songs, she collaborated with a few renowned musicians, including her husband Jay-Z on the album 'Everything is Love' in 2018, and 'The Lion King: The Gift,' which was released in 2019, 'King Richard' which featured her original music. Homecoming: The Live Album was released in 2019 in collaboration with Netflix, coinciding with Beyonce's iconic Coachella performance the year before. Live interpretations of several of the former Destiny's Child members' biggest singles can be found on the album. She also collaborated with Megan Thee Stallion on a remix of "Savage," which got her Grammy nominations. In addition, her 2020 charity single, Black Parade, which was released during the Black Lives Matter movement, won an award at the Grammys. 

The BeyHive are very excited and thrilled to hear not only the music by Queen Bey but also her process of making the Renaissance since Lemonade was an iconic tale of infidelity and overcoming betrayal infused the era's experience with gritty feminism and a rebellious aspect of the star that the audience hadn't seen in such high clarity before.
