Beyoncé’s highly anticipated album “Renaissance” was released on Thursday night as the clock

leaked approximately 36 hours before its official release.
The news came as a shock as Beyoncé is known to keep her secret. Social media is filled with

year-old American musician praises her fans for being patient.
“So, the album leaked, and you all actually waited until the proper release time so you all can

your love and protection.
“I appreciate you for calling out anyone that was trying to sneak into the club early,” she

Renaissance marks Beyoncé’s first solo album in six years since the 2016 release of Lemonade.
The singer revealed the track list for her forthcoming seventh album “Renaissance” last week.

release, and feel freedom.
Beyoncé goes on to say that it was a beautiful journey of exploration and is hoping that her fans
throughout the world find joy in her new album.
