Beyoncé’s new album RENAISSANCE is set for release on July 29, music streaming services including Spotify and Tidal announced early on Thursday, marking her first studio album release in six years that follows multiple teases on social media over the past few days.
The full name of the album appears to be RENAISSANCE – act i, a possible indication the new project may be released in multiple parts.
The official announcement was shared by the social media handles of all major music streaming services including Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and YouTube Music—indicating that unlike her last album ‘Lemonade’ this will release on all platforms.
The new album will be Beyoncé’s seventh solo album.
Thursday’s announcement comes after several days of teases on social media which included the removal of Beyoncé’s display pictures from her Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube pages.
Beyoncé’s last studio album Lemonade, released in 2016, was both a massive critical and commercial success. The album received nine Grammy nominations and ended up winning two awards for Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video for the song “Formation.” Last year, Beyoncé became the most decorated female artist in Grammy history after receiving a record 28th award and tied with Quincy Jones.
