The Houston, Texas born singer is set to release her seventh studio album, RENAISSANCE later this month.
Beyoncé has previewed the tracklist for her forthcoming album RENAISSANCE a week before it's release.
Among the new songs on Beyoncé's seventh studio album, are tracks 'America Has A Problem' and 'Plastic Off The Sofa'.
RENAISSANCE is the first solo studio album for the singer since 2016's Lemonade, with intermissions for Homecoming: The Live Album, collaborative albums The Lion King: The Gift and The Lion King: The Gift [Deluxe Edition].
Beyoncé recently spoke about the 16 track LP on Instagram, saying: "Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world.
"My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.
"I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are."
The full tracklisting for RENAISSANCE is:
I’m That Girl
Break My Soul
Plastic Off The Sofa
All Up in Your Mind
America Has A Problem
Renaissance is set to feature pop and country tracks, with contributions from artists such as Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic), Raphael Saadiq, Big Freedia, The-Dream, and Tricky Stewart - the latter three having worked on the album's first drop, 'Break My Soul'.
Released late June, the infectious dance track and lead single from RENAISSANCE is something completely new for Beyonce, marking a new era for this new album. 'Break My Soul' is extremely reminiscent of the '90s club scene, with samples from 'Show Me Love' by Robin S and 'Explode' by Big Freedia. The drop was in perfect time to make this release the dance track of the summer.
Beyoncé had confirmed she was working on a new project last summer. "I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half," the singer explained. "Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies.
"Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!"
