Beyoncé has returned with new single "Break My Soul", marking the first taster of her forthcoming album Renaissance.
"Break My Soul" is the first single from Beyoncé's upcoming seventh album Renaissance, and features a sample of Robin S.'s '90s house hit "Show Me Love", which was also sampled this year for Charli XCX's "Used To Know Me", and Daddy Yankee's "Pasatiempo".
Big Freedia also expressed how it felt to contribute to Beyoncé's new single on Twitter, writing, "It feels surreal to be on the track with the Queen Beyonce once again I’m so honored to be apart of this special moment I’m forever grateful lord."

Following the release of "Break My Soul", Drake has been trolled for his house-driven Honestly, Nevermind album that landed last week, which wasn't received so positively.

"Break My Soul" is Beyoncé's first new outing since contributing "Be Alive" to the King Richard film soundtrack in November last year.
Renaissance will be Beyoncé's first solo album since 2016's Lemonade. She did team up with Jay-Z on Everything Is Love in 2018, and also released the soundtrack album The Lion King: The Gift in 2019.
