Beyoncé Is Going Full-On Country For ‘Renaissance: ACT II,’ Releases 2 New Singles

Beyoncé stopped the world when she announced Renaissance: ACT II — a full-on country album and follow up to her disco-themed, ACT I album.

In an exciting Verizon ad played during the 2024 Super Bowl, Bey took viewers down memory lane of times she’s caused conversation, as well as ways she could stop the world in the future.

In the commercial, Bey could be seen at her Lemonade stand (referencing her 2016 album), channeling “Barbey” in reference to Barbie, taking on the role as “BOTUS” (Beyoncé Of The United States), and even taking a trip to space.

“OK, they ready — drop the new music. I told y’all the ‘Renaissance’ is not over,” she concludes the visual.

Following the announcement, the “Break My Soul” icon posted a teaser to her Instagram showing her next musical venture into country music, as well as two pieces of cover art for singles “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages.”

Upon Renaissance: ACT I‘s release, Bey revealed that the LP would be part of a three act project — the first installment being heavily-influenced by ballroom, disco and house music. To accompany the album’s success, Bey also released a concert-film/documentary to show the process and journey of creating the Renaissance tour — which grossed a record-breaking $579 million.

Unclear if Renaissance: ACT II will receive the same treatment, fans will just have to wait and see.

ACT II drops on March 29.
