Get ready to be liberated!
From mixing afrobeat and club beats with hip hop loops or techno-pop choruses, switching from a classic house beat to a full bounce track, the queen’s latest R&B/funk/disco album, Renaissance, is incredibly enjoyable and danceable.
Beyoncé’s vocal prowess is on full display. She serves up the ultimate experimental pop classic: an ode to the creative musical mastery of Donna Summer, Janet Jackson, Grace Jones, Sheila E., Nile Rodgers, Teena Marie, Chicago house artist Lidell Townsell, and Atlanta rapper Kilo Ali. Renaissance has approximately 100,000 credits for all the samples and contributions from numerous artists.
This is Black girl magic at it’s most powerful! Renaissance is a love letter to Black house music and culture. Each of these tracks make you want to get up, dance, and release that pent-up anger or depression we’ve been dealing with all of our lives.
So many of us have called this “the album we didn’t know we needed.” Thank you, Beyoncé, for inviting us to the best party of 2022.
Bey has created something phenomenal, majestic, and distinctive, serving up Black dance floor therapy for confidence and energy.
