Beyonce to release new album this summer
Beyonce, who has about 348.5 million SNS followers, changed her Instagram and Twitter profile to ‘Act i RENAISSANCE 7.29’ on Thursday.
Simply put, Beyonce’s new album ‘RENAISSANCE’ will be released on July 29th.
It may also indicate that a second or more volume may be in progress because new records are being billed as ‘act 1’.
In addition, the future album will consist of a total of 16 tracks.

The 40-year-old singer became a hot topic on the internet last Friday when her profile picture suddenly disappeared from all her social media pages.
Fans are already starting to speculate that Diva’s new album may be in the works.
Their expectations were raised when Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles, shared a post on her Instagram page last week.
She uploaded a clip of her famous daughter singing live and captioned it ‘I miss your song’.
And it seems that their wishes come true.
Meanwhile, the celebrity has updated their official website that the new album can be pre-ordered.
A set of 4 Renaissance boxes is now available for $39.99. Includes another t-shirt, CD, 28 page photobook and mini poster.

Beyonce may have hinted at a new album for 2021
After an interesting announcement, some detective fans pointed out that Beyonce may have hinted at her seventh album last year in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar.
She told the magazine frankly, making fun of new music being made.
‘At all the isolation and injustice of the past year, it seems we are all ready to escape, travel, love and laugh again,’ said the mother of three. I feel a renaissance is coming, and I want to be involved in cultivating that way out as much as possible.’
The artist who fell in love continued, ‘It has been a year and a half since I entered the studio. Sometimes it takes a year to manually search through thousands of sounds to find the right kick or snare.’
