Beyoncé Unveils Country-Inspired ‘Renaissance Part II’ Album [Video]

Beyoncé has revealed the highly anticipated sequel to her 2022 “Renaissance” album.

In the intricately crafted Super Bowl commercial, Beyoncé is depicted scrolling through songs on an iPhone before appearing at a lemonade stand, a nod to her iconic 2016 album. The ad continues with clever wordplay on her name, portraying her as “Barbey,” a play on Barbie, then as “BOTUS,” humorously suggesting her ambition to become the first female president.

The commercial wraps up with Beyoncé declaring, “OK, they’re ready — drop the new music. I told y’all the ‘Renaissance’ is not over.”

Shortly after, Beyoncé’s Instagram page unveiled the country-themed final teaser video, featuring the album title and release date. The video showcases country music with a crowd assembling to admire a billboard displaying “Texas! Hold ‘Em” alongside an image of Beyoncé. As the music shifts, Beyoncé begins to sing: “This ain’t Texas, ain’t no hold ’em / So lay your cards down, down, down, down.”

Speculation has long circulated that the second installment of “Renaissance” could take the form of a country music album. These rumors gained momentum recently when Beyoncé appeared at the Grammys wearing a cowboy hat.

Beyoncé initially released her seventh studio album, “Renaissance,” in July 2022 under her company Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. The album’s success was substantial, garnering her four Grammys in 2023, including the coveted title of best dance/electronic music album.

Following the release of “Renaissance,” Beyoncé launched her groundbreaking Renaissance World Tour, which became her highest-grossing tour to date, amassing over $500 million in revenue from its 56 shows.
