Even though Beyoncé joined TikTok last year, she hasn’t yet uploaded anything to the video-sharing website until now.
On 14th July, Beyoncé shared a collection of videos from other TikTok users dancing and responding to her most recent track, ‘Break My Soul.’ There is a clip of Cardi B screaming along to the line in the footage- “In case you forgot how we act outside.”
“Seeing y’all release the wiggle made me so happy!” Beyoncé captioned the TikTok, which has garnered 3.6million views. “Thank you so much for all the love for BREAK MY SOUL!”
The song ‘Break My Soul,’ featuring Robin S and Big Freedia, was released by Beyoncé last month. Speaking about the single in a four-star review, NME’s Kyann-Sian Williams said: “With dance music (especially disco) being the sound of revolution when ballroom culture started to evolve, electronic music has always been significant to queer spaces.”
“So, with Beyoncé using the genre to tell those ‘searching for something that lives inside [them]’ to get motivation to build their own foundations, this is a motivation track. And if you don’t need any motivation, then you can simply enjoy this track, turning any walkway into a runway.”
The song is the first single from Beyoncé’s upcoming seventh studio album, ‘RENAISSANCE’ which is set for release on 29th July. Following her 2016 LP ‘Lemonade,’ it will be the singer’s first release in six years.
“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” Beyoncé wrote last month. “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.”
