Beyoncé’s latest studio album RENAISSANCE has arrived.

Clocking in at just a little over one hour, the exuberant 16-track record features guest appearances from Beam on “ENERGY” and Grace Jones and Tems on “MOVE,” and the likes of Mike Dean, 070 Shake, The-Dream, Raphael Saadiq and more provided production work. Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo are also credited in the album as the track “ENERGY” samples Kelis’ “Get Along With You,” which was produced by the pair, while Sabrina Claudio and Syd are listed as songwriters for the cut “PLASTIC OFF THE SOFA,” along with contributions from Lucky Daye, Honey Dijon, Drake, JAY-Z and more.

RENAISSANCE marks Bey’s seventh studio album and is her first solo full-length release since 2016’s Lemonade. It also serves as the first entry in a trilogy of albums, which are yet to be announced. “This three-act project was recorded over three years during the pandemic. A time to be still, but also a time I found to be the most creative,” she wrote in a letter to her fans. “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.”

Stream Beyoncé’s RENAISSANCE on Spotify and Apple Music.
