Beyoncé releases “Break My Soul” the lead single for “Renaissance” album

Beyoncé, whose first album Renaissance in five years drops this July, has officially shared its lead single entitled “Break My Soul.”

According to HypeBeast, clocking in at just over four-and-a-half minutes, the cut features production work by Tricky Stewart, Terius Nash and Bey herself. 

The upbeat, summer-ready cut, adds the outlet, fuses sonic hints of music from the islands as Beyoncé sings of finding new love and life — feeling free with the anthem as she sings “Bey is back and I’m sleeping real good at night.”

Renaissance will mark Beyoncé’s first full-length album since 2016’s award-winning Lemonade. TIDAL — owned by her husband JAY-Z — confirmed in a surprise announcement that the upcoming record is set to release on July 29, while the album’s Apple Music page revealed a total of 16 tracks.
