Beyoncé is one of the world’s best-selling music artists, having sold more than 120 million records as a solo artist by 2010. The singer and songwriter announced her seventh studio album, Renaissance, on June 15th, and it dropped to fans’ delight. Another remix of Beyoncé’s Renaissance anthem “Break My Soul” starring Madonna has been released.
Queen Bey recently released “The Queens Remix” of her dance floor filler. This version is only presently accessible for purchase on Bey’s official website. Although Bey did make a special appearance in Madonna’s 2015 star-studded “B-tch I’m Madonna” music video, the “Break My Soul” remix marks the first time the two have worked together.
Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Diplo were among the other celebrities mentioned in the video. Also among TIDAL’s original investors is Madonna. Since the release of her Renaissance album last week, Beyoncé has been dominating headlines.
Renaissance is predicted to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 next week with between 275,000 and 315,000 total album-equivalent sales. Beyoncé’s most recent release has received a ton of support from the BeyHive, but it hasn’t been without criticism.
Bey eventually took Kelis’ 2003 hit “Milkshake” out of the song when she complained about how it was sampled on “Energy” without her permission. Additionally, some considered the phrase “spaz” in the song “Heated” to be “ableist,” taking offence to it. The song’s lyrics were later removed by Beyoncé and her team, a move that Brooklyn Nets player Kevin Durant termed a “joke.” Check out the tweet below.
