Beyoncé’s big announcement

But, without a doubt, there is one news that has eclipsed everything else. Beyoncé has been the star of one of those coveted advertisements that so many millions of people see. His was from the telecommunications company Verizon.

In it he invited his followers to look for an official announcement on social networks, something that was going to “break the internet”. In the advertisement we can see her next to Tony Haleactor of the series veep.

For just over a minute he tries in various ways to smash it on the internet. He doesn’t achieve it by breaking up a lemonade stand, nor by introducing Beyoncé in an artificial intelligence version. She is neither transformed into Barbie, nor presenting herself as a candidate for president of the United States. Not even, becoming the first woman to travel to space to perform.

Okay, you’re ready: release the new music. I told everyone that the Renaissance is not over“, he ends by saying. It’s his way of announcing a new album: Act II.

Two new songs

Then she posted another video on social media in which we can see her driving a car with a license plate from Texas, her homeland. There she announced the release of the second volume of her trilogy for March 29 and made the style of this album clear: country. When a few days ago we saw her at the 2024 Grammys with a cowboy hat, she was already giving us clues.

In addition, it presented two new songs at once, Texas Hold ‘Em and 16 Carriages. The first of them has acoustic guitars, bass drum and voices, and the second opts for an epic and orchestral arrangement in the choruses.

After his homage to black dance club culture from the first album in the trilogy, he now makes a foray into country, which is not the first. This is their eighth album that has arrived impacting and, as I said in the announcement, breaking the internet. He who takes the baton of Renaissance2022.

Both songs have the contribution of the producer Raphael Saadiqrecognized for hits like How Does It Feel? of D’Angelo and work with Beyoncé’s sister, Solange.
