Empowered and disruptive: This is how Beyoncé sounds on her new album

Beyoncé has given the best news to her fans. The artist has published this morning sixteen new songs that are part of Renaissance, the first album of a three-part project on which she has worked in recent years.

Inspired by the disco and house music of the 80s and 90s, the American artist invites hedonism and carefree living after a few difficult years for everyone, just as she herself has advanced.

The songs in question are full of synthesizers, voiceovers and references to icons such as Grace Jones, Giorgio Moroder or rappers Nile Rodgers and Drake.

Aware that she is one of the few people capable of paralyzing the music industry, Beyoncé broke her usual secrecy last month to announce that she had an album ready that she had worked on during the pandemic.

"My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment, a place to be free from perfectionism and excessive thinking. A place to scream, let go, be free," he said then.

A launch strategy that breaks with everything else and that marks the solo return of the Texan, who begins with the song I'm That Girl, in which she asks "please, bastards, don't stop me" while rapping about being "indecent", "losing my mind" and "being high all the time".

That same mantra appears in other songs like Break My Soul, whose lyrics echo the "great retreat" of burnt-out employees in the US, celebrating that someone "has quit their job" and is looking for "new motivation."

Songs that are far from political, including America Has a Problem, which from its title seemed like it was going to be. But not everything is as carefree as it seems. For example, Church Girl's quasi-gospel and Move beg for more than one dance move, and Energy has all the ingredients to go viral on TikTok. In fact, the singer created an account on this social network a few weeks ago, so now she is about to see what promotional campaign or party she sets up on the social network for this and the other two albums that she has already fiance.
