For her new album, she wrote songs about her personal freedom and the pleasure of escapism. She also spoke about her desire to release an album that is free of judgment or perfection.
Beyonce’s Renaissance album is a love note to Black queer pioneers of dance music, is a heartfelt tribute to them. It’s a sensual, joyful, and joyous release. It’s one of the most explicit albums she’s ever released. It features Black and queer musical icons, and blends post-1970s Black dance music styles. There are also drag-themed songs by Moi Renee.
