It’s been six long years since Beyoncé released her 2016 album Lemonade. She returns with the first of her trilogy, Renaissance Vol 1. She had this to say about the project:
“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgement. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.”
Renaissance Vol 1 features 16 new tracks and guest appearances by The-Dream, Pharrell, Jay-Z, 070 Shake, Skrillex, Drake, Leven Kali, Nile Rodgers, and more.
