Beyoncé first announced Renaissance in mid June. Following the album announcement, the 16-song tracklist was posted on Bey’s Instagram story. In addition to song titles, credited composers such as Jay-Z, Skrillex, 070 Shake, The-Dream, and Drake were also revealed. Pitchfork reports that samples by Donna Summer, James Brown and Teena Marie are set to appear on the album, which arrives July 29.
Recently, Beyoncé shared the album’s artwork, which mirrored Bianca Jagger’s famous Studio 54 photo. Previously, she surprised-dropped the first single from the album “Break My Soul.” The track samples Robin S’ 1993 hit “Show Me Love,” and features vocals from Big Freedia. "Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world...," Beyoncé shared on Instagram last month.
Some of the eye-catching song titles featured on the album include "America Has a Problem,” “Church Girl,” “Cuff It,” and “Thique.” Fans are particularly curious about the track “Alien Superstar.” Reportedly, a source told Metro that “everyone lost their minds” when they heard the song, and it may be the album's next single.
