When does Beyoncé's 'Renaissance' come out?

'Renaissance' will be hitting streaming platforms on July 29 – so not long to go at all!

The seventh record from the 'Crazy In Love' songstress comes a long six years after Beyoncé's critically acclaimed visual album 'Lemonade', which was released in 2016 to rave reviews.

The Beyhive have been patiently waiting for a follow-up ever since the genre-subverting musician dominated the scene with singles like 'Hold Up', 'Sorry' and 'Formation'.

What genre will 'Renaissance' be?

Bey has kept her cards close to her press during the promotion of her seventh record, with fans and music critics alike patiently anticipating the style of 'Renaissance'.

Thus far, all signs point toward dance and house music getting a moment on the album thanks to the mega-success of the disco-esque single 'Break My Soul'.

Variety reports that the album will also include remnants of country music, with Ryan Tedder, of One Republic, serving as a songwriter for several tracks.

Ryan has worked on a slew of successful bops throughout his career, notably co-writing and co-producing the 2009 'Halo' with Beyoncé.
