SLEUTHS on social media stumbled upon a number of clues that led them to believe Beyoncé is gearing up to release another album.
It turns out that Beyoncé’s fans were right and the pop music singer is in fact preparing for the release of her seventh album, Renaissance.
When is the release date for Beyoncé’s album Renaissance?
On June 10, 2022, Beyoncé removed the profile pictures from her Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok accounts.
In place of her previous social media icons, she left her main profile shots blank, which ignited speculation among music fans.
After new music rumors ran rampant, #beyonceisBACK started trending on Twitter.
One excited fan tweeted: “B7 IS REALLY COMING OMG BEYONCE COMING TO END THE PANDEMIC.”
A second fan tweeted: “I’m going to sleep. I will start working on my first job tomorrow and the only thing I can think is B7.”
“I don’t believe anything about B7 just begging Beyonce to drop it ASAP,” said another.
Days later on Thursday, June 16, Beyoncé changed her social media bios to reveal the name and release date of her forthcoming project.
Fans can expect Renaissance on July 29, 2022, which is only the first part of the project she has up her sleeve.
In September 2021, the performer did tease that she was working on new music.
During an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Beyoncé stated: “With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again.
“I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible.”
The GRAMMY-winning superstar added: “I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half.”
“Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare.”
She confirmed: “After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!”
In order to promote Renaissance, the star musician changed her bios on social media once again.
On Monday, June 20, the former Destiny’s Child member edited her online information to reflect the upcoming release of the album’s first single.
When did Beyoncé release Break My Soul?
Break My Soul was the first song promoted from the project and was made available for listeners at 12am on Tuesday, June 21.
On Thursday, June 30, she released the cover art for Renaissance and went into detail about the inspiration behind the new album.
Beyoncé wrote on Instagram: “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world.”
“It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving.”
The Single Ladies singer further explained: “My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment.”
“A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, and feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.”
She added: “I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle.”
“Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”
Is Beyoncé going on tour?
The source revealed: “Beyonce’s new album is ready but this era will be like no other.
“She wrote most of the songs during the pandemic, when she was desperate to be with her fans and perform.”
The insider further shared: “This new record and campaign will be her most interactive one yet because she wants to reach out to the fans.
“It will focus on live experiences outside of touring, including intimate shows and pop-up performances.”
The insider also added: “She is planning to spend a lot of time performing and promoting it in the UK, so there will be unique surprises in store for the British fans.”
“People in her camp have scouted out venues for her to perform at when the music comes out and then there will be another huge tour later on.”
Official tour dates for the singer-songwriter’s seventh album campaign have not been revealed and she did not comment regarding the whispers of a new tour.
