Beyoncé adds one more record under her belt through the release of her latest album, “RENAISSANCE.” The album has made a significant impact worldwide in its first few days.
The highly anticipated record was released on all streaming platforms on July 29th. Spotify shared the next day that the record became the most-streamed album in a single day by a female artist in 2022 so far with over 43 million streams around the world. In addition to that, all of the tracks debuted in US Spotify’s Top 25, with seven of them entering the top 10. “RENAISSANCE” also debuted #1 on the Top Albums Debut USA and on the Top Albums Debut Global Spotify charts during the weekend of its release. The tracks from this record are also making an impact on the charts, with them occupying the first nine positions on the Top Songs Debut USA’s chart from July 29th to July 31st. The album has become Beyoncé’s most acclaimed album ever on Metacritic with a 93 score. With these astonishing records, it’s no doubt that Beyoncé is one of the current musicians that can stop the world with her new releases.
“RENAISSANCE” is Beyoncé’s seventh studio album and it’s composed of house music and afro-beats, focusing on putting energy into the dance floor. As she has shared on Instagram, this album has “allowed her to create a safe space to dream and to be free of perfectionism and overthinking.” This is her first solo album since the release of “Lemonade” in 2016, and it’s also the first album of her three-act project that she recorded over three years. The release dates for the next records are yet to be announced.
