The BeyHive is buzzing, and with good reason.
Recorded over three years during the pandemic, the latest drop is “Act 1” of three, and its crammed with assists from the likes of BEAM, Grace Jones, Tems and plus production help from husband Jay-Z, Drake, Skrillex, Giorgio Moroder, Nile Rodgers and more.
Queen Bey is in elite company, having led the Billboard 200 chart with all six of her previous album releases, most recently with Lemonade.
Whether Lemonade squashes its rivals and extends that streak, the BeyHive will be eagerly awaiting.
How eager? Very, judging by the memes and messages flooding social media as Beyonce’s millions of fans log on and soak up the new album.
Check out some of the reaction below.

I can't believe all of these songs are club bangers, yet COVID, monkeypox, and every other biblical plague known to man are about to whoop our asses in the coming weeks… #RENAISSANCE pic.twitter.com/gRxORTl3wJ— your fav emotional support introvert (@reallifeidiot24) July 29, 2022
