Since “Lemonade” (2016), her last solo studio LP and accompanying movie, Beyoncé has mentored fans with a number of ambitious projects in-between.
In 2018, she performed as one of the headlines at Coachella, where her show paid tribute to the marching band tradition of historically black colleges and universities. It was widely hailed as a victory Music that “redirected her music, marginalizing her connections to pop and framing it squarely in a strain of Southern black musical tradition,” New York Times critic John Karamanica wrote. The performance was later turned into a special on Netflix and an album titled “Homecoming”.
Also in 2018, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, her husband, released a joint album, “Everything is love” attributed to Carter. And in June 2020, at the height of the national protests following the murder of George Floyd, she said He released the song “Black Barred” With lines like “Raise your fist in the air, show black love.”
“Black Parade” won a Grammy the following year for Best R&B Performance, one of which Four prizes that night Which brought Beyoncé’s career group to 28 – more than any other woman. This year, Beyoncé was nominated at the Academy Awards for Best Original Song for Be Alive, from “King Richard,” a biopic about the father of Venus and Serena Williams.
How the early leakage will affect the business prospects of “Renaissance” remains unclear. Years ago, the previously unauthorized release of music could have had dire consequences for the album. But this risk has been mitigated by switching to streaming.
And Beyoncé, like most other artists today, has taken pre-orders for physical copies of her album, which will be based on charts once they ship — usually release week. On Beyoncé’s website, the four boxed sets of “Renaissance” and its limited edition vinyl are sold out.
