The first single off Beyoncé Renaissance project is expected to be released at midnight Eastern Time. The new song “Break My Soul” release was announced via Beyoncé’s official Instagram by changing the bios on her social media pages to read: “6. BREAK MY SOUL midnight ET.” Her much-anticipated album Renaissance, is poised to be released July 29.
“Break My Soul” will arrive just about two years after Beyoncé’s single “Black Parade,” which she released on June 19, 2020 in observance of Juneteenth. The track was eventually included on The Lion King: The Gift (Deluxe Edition) and also earned her the Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance in 2021. With the award, Beyoncé became the winningest female artist in Grammy history.
Renaissance is Beyoncé’s first solo studio album since April 2016’s Lemonade. “Break My Soul” is the musician’s first new song since November 2021’s “Be Alive.”
