Just a week away from the release of her seventh studio album “Renaissance”, Beyoncé continues to tease her fans with special surprises. Luckily for the Beyhive, the world-famous superstar shared three things related to the new musical body.
Queen Bey has released the cappella and instrumental versions of her new single, “Break My Soul.” In addition to the new styles, she also unveiled a different cover art for the limited-edition vinyl of “Renaissance.” Instead of a simple black background, there is a painting of a mythical horse reminiscent of the Renaissance era. Beyoncé still appears riding a celestial horse, but instead of her metal spiked bikini she wore on the official album cover, the triple threat artist poses in a silver one-piece outfit by Giannina Azar. The sparkling one-piece featured a high stand-up collar, side cutouts and sequined chains that dangled from the waist. She accessorizes metal studs with a white cowboy hat.
To add even more glamor to her look, the award-winning singer completed the ensemble with a set of strappy sandals. The shoe style wrapped around her ankle and featured a pointed outsole and sat on a thin heel.

The inside of the vinyl sleeve, when opened, reveals an image of Beyonce lying on the horse, cowboy hat in her right hand, microphone held in her left as she sings. The vinyl will also feature four close-ups of the singer-songwriter, one for each side of the two inside sleeves. Among the highlights, Grace Jones and Tems appear on the song “Move”. In a TikTok teaser for the album, gloved hands reveal more cover art in a video. In addition to the gloves, she’s seen wearing an edgy veil and hats – more subtle nods to Jones’ signature style, with amped up glamour.
Beyoncé first dropped her official album cover with a heartfelt message to her fans on Instagram in June.
“Creating this album allowed me to dream and find escape in a frightening time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when nothing else was happening. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgement. A place to be free from perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to let go. Ha! And to feel as unique and strong and sexy as you are,” she wrote alongside the photo.
