Beyonce samples Show Me Love on first Renaissance single

By | Published on Tuesday 21 June 2022


Beyonce has released the first single from her upcoming new album ‘Renaissance’. Titled ‘Break My Soul’, it’s a 90s-style dance banger, which samples ‘Show Me Love’ by Robyn S and ‘Explode’ by Big Freedia, and which encourages us all to quit our jobs.

It was revealed last week that ‘Renaissance’ would be arriving on 29 Jul, via an update to the singer’s social media bios. Pre-sales of a boxset on her website, as well as listings on streaming services, revealed a few more details – like that there will apparently be sixteen tracks on the record. But there was little word on what it would actually sound like.

According to Variety, though, Beyonce has recorded dance and country tracks for her latest project. However, it’s not clear if both genres will appear side by side on the same album – this upcoming release having been billed as “Act I”.

If Beyonce has made a full piano house album, then ‘Break My Soul’ suggests that’s something we should be excited about. Have yourself a listen here:
