Beyoncé’s latest album, Renaissance is being released in four box sets and limited-edition vinyl, which finds her creating an upbeat collection of hits, boundary-expanding deep cuts whose quaint grandeur feels starkly cutting-edge. It suggests that the new harmony for the well-known singer is to keep it a little bit retro.
As we all know how much Beyonce likes to dazzle and shine in front of the camera but this time Renaissance arrived without any visual support. She insisted on a more old-school release and left it to the imagination of her fans.
The effect is already visible. ‘Alien Superstar’ – the album’s cherry on the top – is already a viral hit on Twitter and TikTok.
