According to Harper's Bazaar, the cover art for her highly awaited seventh studio album, Renaissance, was posted on Instagram.
A first glimpse of her album cover, which will be unveiled on July 29th, provides fans a taste of what Beyoncé has in store for the Beyhive with her new music. Although she didn't mention it, she said she was influenced by global social and economic changes.
"After the past year of seclusion and injustice, I believe we are all eager to escape, travel, love, and laugh once more. The September 2021 Harper's Bazaar cover story by Beyoncé reads, "I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be a part of nourishing that escape in any way I can."
Her Instagram fans were enthralled by a photo she recently shared.
Nusi Quero, the designer of the crystal top she wore on the cover of her debut album, Dangerously in Love, in 2003, has created a bejeweled harness for the Grammy Award-winning singer while she rides a silver holographic horse. Wearing stilettos and flaunting an all-over nude look with ethereal blonde hair streaming down her back and bright red lips, Harper's Bazaar claims.
The "Break My Soul" vocalist is paying respect to Countess Lady Godiva from the 1897 picture by English artist John Collier.
She captioned the shot with a description of her experience working on her new album: “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” she wrote. “It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”
A visual accompaniment to her role in the upcoming remake of Disney's Lion King, she released Lemonade six years ago and her follow-up, Black is King, in 2020. It was reported by the Daily Beast that in 2021 she released her Oscar-nominated song "Be Alive" for King Richard.
