Beyonce has released new single ‘Break My Soul’.
The 40-year-old pop megastar dropped her latest song – the first tune to be taken from her upcoming album ‘Renaissance’ – on Monday night in the US, and the house track samples both Robin S’ dance hit ‘Show Me Love’ and Big Freedia’s ‘Explode’.
On the song, Beyonce sings: “Now, I just fell in love, and I just quit my job / I’m gonna find new drive, damn, they work me so damn hard / Work by nine, then off past five / And they work my nerves, that’s why I cannot sleep at night.”
In the pre-chorus, she belts out: “Motivation / I’m looking for a new foundation, yeah / And I’m on that new vibration / I’m building my own foundation, yeah / Hold up, oh, baby, baby.”
The ‘Crazy In Love’ hitmaker is set to release her new album on July 29, and it’s believed the collection – her first since 2016’s ‘Lemonade’ – will drop in multiple parts.
Last summer, she gave fans a hint of what’s to come from her new material and promised to “break the rules that need to be broken”.
She said at the time: “With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again.
“I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible…
“I have paid my dues and followed every rule for decades, so now I can break the rules that need to be broken. My wish for the future is to continue to do everything everyone thinks I can’t do.”
Meanwhile, Beyonce is on the cover of British Vogue’s July issue, and the publication’s editor in chief Edward Enninful teased Beyonce’s future plans.
He wrote: “New music is coming – a thrilling abundance of it…
“The creation has been a long process, she explains, with the pandemic giving her far longer to spend thinking and re-thinking every decision. Just the way she likes it.”
