We Reviewed Every Song on Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ Album in One Sentence

Beyoncé is back and it was worth the wait. Queen Bee has released ‘Renaissance’, which is the first act of a three-album long project. Renaissance is an album filled with danceable bops and it’s clear that miss B has made this one for the gays and the girls only. The 16-tracks long project is a journey, so we decided to review each track with a one-sentence review.

I’M THAT GIRL

Beyoncé’s opener starts with a promising sample, setting the tone for an interesting and memorable album.

COZY

This steady and impactful track is an immediate favorite and is set to bless many summer parties’ sound systems.

ALIEN SUPERSTAR

The remarkable third song stands out for its production and peaks in its last ecstatic minute, referencing ballroom culture and blowing listeners away with harmonies only Beyoncé can deliver.

CUFF IT

The lighter disco tune is an unsurprising move but still a win thanks to Beyoncé’s one-of-a-kind instrument: her voice.

ENERGY

The only feature on the album goes to Beam on this fun interlude, making it a perfect fit for the album, but slightly underwhelming on its own.

BREAK MY SOUL

The beloved single is by now well imprinted on everyone’s mind and still feels like a highlight on the full-length.

CHURCH GIRL

An unexpected trap beat leads the way through this almost-satirically religious anthem, probably upsetting some Christians along the way.

PLASTIC OFF THE SOFA

This love song is at risk of going unnoticed but hides elegance in its simplicity.

VIRGO’S GROOVE

The second half of the album begins with a lengthy beach bar-ready track that relies heavily on its vocals, as the beat alone does not have enough spice to carry us through the six-minute-long song.

MOVE

This banger comes in at the top of the ranking, inviting you to both move out of the queen’s way but also shake every single part of your body.

HEATED

Leaning towards reggaeton, “HEATED” feels like a summer breeze, calling all the independent women to the dance floor.

THIQUE

Bad bitch energy, nothing more, nothing less.

ALL UP IN YOUR MIND

Arguably the best song on the album is built on world-class production and surprises at every turn, and it gets better with each replay.

AMERICA HAS A PROBLEM

The most intriguing title delivers one of the most danceable songs, while the chorus is begging to be sung along to on every backseat.

PURE/HONEY

This double song hits the peak of ballroom inspiration. It should cost a billion to sound this good, Beyoncé.

SUMMER RENAISSANCE

The sparkling house rendition of a Donna Summer classic beautifully sums up the glorious album, proving Knowles Carter’s endless ability to inspire, surprise, and please.

Beyoncé’s new album ‘Renaissance’ is out now on all platforms. Review co-written by Boris Paul Roelandt.
