Beyoncé Announces Country-Themed ‘Renaissance Part II’ Album and we’re here for it!
Beyoncé announced the long-awaited Part II of her 2022 “Renaissance” album — and confirmed rumours of a country inspired album, due 29th March.
Everything was revealed in the elaborate, self-referencing ad were we saw Beyonce scrolling through songs on an iPhone, then at a lemonade stand (referencing her 2016 classic album of the same name), following with a series of plays on her name: “Barbey,” referencing Barbie, “BOTUS,” saying she’ll be the first female president, then the first woman to launch the first rocket for the first woman in space.
The streaming service Tidal has exclusively released these two new tracks, “Texas Hold ‘Em” is almost entirely acoustic guitars, bass drum and vocals, with a chorus that concludes, “It’s a real-live boogie and a real live hoedown, don’t be a bitch just take it to the floor now.”
There is also a billboard and a car license plate posted on Beyonce’s latest Instagram that says “Texas Hold ‘Em,” referencing the poker game named after the singer’s home state, and possibly a song title.
