Beyonce has released her new single Break My Soul hours before the track was due to drop and fans are already hailing it the anthem of this summer.
The singer, 40, surprised fans by dropping the track almost two hours earlier than it was due to go live, to the delight of the Beyhive.
The house-inspired track is the first single from Beyonce’s upcoming seventh studio album Renaissance and gives fans major hints to what we can expect from the record.
Beyonce reunited with producers Tricky Stewart and The-Dream for Break My Soul, who she previously worked with on Single Ladies, and husband Jay Z is listed among the songwriters for the track.
Fans were instantly obsessed with the song, tweeting: ‘Is she telling us to quit our jobs?? Because I will, Beyoncé, I will!’
Another added: ‘Beyoncé gave us an anti-capitalist, pro-gay summer anthem with vocals, rapping, a choir call and response, and FREEDIA. We really won #BreakMySoul.’
One joked: ‘Beyoncé saw that it was the summer of late-millennial burnout, the labor movement, ‘90s revival, and queer pride and was like, “Yeah, I can make a song about that”’.
Fans were also quick to notice that Break My Soul samples Robin S’s 1993 track Show Me Love, with both of its songwriters – Allen George and Fred McFarlane – credited on the single.
According to reports from Variety, Renaissance will dabble in genres ranging from country music to dance tracks like Break My Soul.
She added, ‘I have paid my dues and followed every rule for decades, so now I can break the rules that need to be broken.
‘My wish for the future is to continue to do everything everyone thinks I can’t do.’
