Beyoncé's Renaissance visuals are officially on the way!
The superstar surprise-dropped a teaser for what will hopefully be a full array of visuals for her seventh studio album. Arriving two weeks after the album's release, the 2-minute teaser shows Queen Bey wearing several futuristic outfits involving black fabrics and silver breastplates (one of which she cracks an egg on) and accents as she sings the album's opening song "I'M THAT GIRL."
The video also gives a possible hint at the other videos on the way, with a rapid montage of different Beyoncés flashing on screen a la Everything Everywhere All At Once. Some looks already gaining buzz among the Beyhive include a monochromatic green beauty moment, a silver headplate with multiple faces, and Bobyoncé.
In true Parkwood fashion, the surprise clip does not include a date when the rest of the visuals will arrive.
Beyoncé's seventh studio album Renaissance has been the soundtrack to this past month, as fans immerse themselves in the superstar's grand foray into house music (and send the tracks to the top of the streaming charts). Amid the passionate response on Twitter, two questions have come up: How much should we save for tour tickets, and where are the videos?
The "Formation" singer has become known for her innovative and breathtaking visual albums, including her Lemonade and Black Is King films, as well as her Netflix documentary Homecoming. Surprisingly, the star has yet to release a full music video for any of Renaissance's tracks, including the single "Break My Soul."
For this release, Beyoncé is giving fans time to solely focus on the music. Per a press release from Parkwood Entertainment, visuals are "scheduled for a later date," though the statement did not clarify whether the star will release music videos for each track or a whole visual album.
"The originator of the visual album format, and the preeminent visual artist, decided to lead without visuals giving fans the opportunity to be limitless in their expansive listening journey," the statement reads. "It is a chance again to be listeners and not viewers, while taking in every gem of the pristine production."
Queen Bey's releases have always been unpredictable, so it's hard to guess whether she'll announce the visuals' arrival ahead of time, or just drop them by surprise. It's also unknown whether the visuals or a tour announcement will arrive soon, or after the next two parts of the star's three-act project are released.
What we do know is that the videos will probably continue the stunning, futuristic-disco aesthetic that we've seen from the album's artwork so far. The superstar released several new album art stills last week along with a heartfelt note to fans, writing "We are going to take our time and enjoy the music."
