Singer-songwriter-actress-icon Beyoncé has now given us a sneak preview of what’s in store by teasing the release of her new album!
Bey posted the album's cover on Thursday, and Renaissance is scheduled to drop on July 29. She can be seen posing regally atop the ethereal outline of a glowing horse in the picture.
The "Renaissance" phase of Beyoncé is now in full swing. The "Break My Soul" singer abandoned the expanses of yellow-gold cloth from her blockbuster "Lemonade" video for her seventh album cover and stood on a holographic horse while donning a provocative bikini. This was done six years after the release of Lemonade. Beyoncé wore a sculptural Nusi Quero bikini that was studded with hundreds of sparkling crystals and chrome spikes, putting her own spin on the season's hottest fashion trend.
The scarcely-there bikini, which was crafted by Marni Senofonte and Vance Gamble, curled around Beyoncé's hips in a helix design starting at the base of her neck. The top half of the one-piece costume featured a pair of chrome nipple pasties, while the rest of her chest was accented with delicate crystal threads that sparkled as brilliantly as her shining riding saddle. She completed the ensemble with honey-brown waves that cascaded beyond her waist, evoking a popular 16th-century haircut, liquid silver heels, a caramel manicure, matching eyeshadow, and a bright pink lip.
Just one month before the album's scheduled release date on July 29, Beyoncé unveiled the album cover. The holographic horse that resembles a disco ball and is at the middle of the future cover art that is displayed against a black background is also prominent. Beyoncé has once again demonstrated her mastery of breath-taking visual covers, whether it is in her seductive Nusi Quero one-piece or her timeless Roberto Cavalli outfit in the "Lemonade" video.
Beyoncé posted a letter with the artwork that stated, "In a scary time for the world, making this album gave me a space to escape and dream. In a period when not much else was moving, it gave me the freedom and adventure I needed. My goal was to establish a secure environment free from bias. a location where overthinking and perfectionism are not allowed. a location where one can yell, let off steam, and experience liberation. It was a lovely exploring adventure. I sincerely hope you enjoy this music. I'm hoping it motivates you to let go of the jiggle. Ha! And to feel as special, powerful, and alluring as you are."
“Break My Soul,” the lead track from Renaissance, was unexpectedly released and universally loved. With vocals by Big Freedia and a sample of the Robin S 1993 hit "Show Me Love," the song is reminiscent of 1990s dance music. According to reports, Renaissance may feature everything from dance songs to country music.
