New Beyoncé music is finally here—and everybody on Twitter might just quit their jobs because of it.
The icon dropped her latest song, a showstopping house anthem called “Break My Soul,” at midnight on Tuesday. It’s the first single to lead off her seventh studio album, Renaissance, which will officially drop on July 29.
Beyoncé previously hinted at the name of her forthcoming project while speaking for Harper’s BAZAAR‘s September 2021 cover story.
“With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible,” she said. “I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio.”
Naturally, fans on social media have erupted with praise for the new summer dance track. Many also resonated with certain lyrics that criticize the soul-crushing effect of typical nine-to-five jobs.
Now, I just fell in love, and I just quit my job
I'm gonna find new drive, damn, they work me so damn hard
Work by nine, then off past five
And they work my nerves, that's why I cannot sleep at night
Ahead, the best Twitter reactions to Queen Bey’s latest single.
