Beyoncé‘s seventh studio album RENAISSANCE has set a new Spotify record.

The streaming service announced that on July 29 — the record’s release day — the album became Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day by a female artist in 2022 so far. While Spotify did not share the official numbers from their end, reports state that RENAISSANCE earned a total of 43.25 million streams to break the record. In addition, all of the tracks on the album debuted in US Spotify’s top 25, with seven of them entering the top 10.

RENAISSANCE is Bey’s first solo full-length release since 2016’s Lemonade and 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.”

In related news, Beyoncé leads the week’s Best New Tracks with Calvin Harris and Omah Lay.
