Beyoncé shared the full tracklist for her forthcoming new record – the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Lemonade’ – on her Instagram Stories feed last night (July 20).

While posting the LP’s official artwork last month, the pop star shared a statement about the experience of making her long-awaited next full-length project. “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” Beyoncé wrote.

“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, [and] feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.”


She added: “I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

Beyoncé is due to release ‘RENAISSANCE’ next Friday (July 29). You can pre-order/pre-save it here.
