The Queen is back.
Beyonce Knowles-Carter gives fans exactly what they've been waiting for — Act II.
The “Cuff It” singer announced she's dropping new music during a Super Bowl commercial. A little while later, he posted on Instagram that the second part of his “Revival” project will be released on Sunday, March 29 with two singles.
Her Instagram video features country music and a crowd gathers to watch a billboard that reads “Texas! Hold 'Em” and features a picture of Beyoncé. The music changes, and Beyonce sings: “This ain't Texas, no hold / So put your cards down, down, down, down.”
The second act of “Revival” has long been rumored to be a country music album. Those rumors reignited last week when Beyoncé wore a cowboy hat to the Grammys.
Beyonce is famous from Houston, Texas. The Instagram video featured music by fellow black musicians from the South: Sun House's “People Grinnin' In Your Face” and Chuck Berry's “Maybelline.”
'Texas Hold 'Em' and '16 Carts'
The first two singles from the new project were released to streaming services on Sunday evening.
“Texas Hold 'Em” is a laid-back foot-stomper, while “16 Garages” is a power ballad. Although she wears a metallic bikini in “Texas Hold 'Em”, she wears a cowboy hat in the artwork for both singles. For “16 Carts” he wears a very traditional western shirt.
Verizon Promotion Notice
Beyoncé appeared in a Verizon commercial during the second half of the Super Bowl. In the ad, he tries to break Verizon's 5G Internet, with Tony Hale as his foil.
He started a lemonade stand, became a “barbe,” created Pionk-AI and performed in space, but nothing short of Verizon's service.
“You won't break me,” she says after the ad ends. “Okay. They're ready. Release the new music.”
Fans began frantically searching the corners of the internet until her Instagram posts surfaced minutes later.
'Renaissance: Act I'
Beyoncé will release her seventh studio album “Revival” in July 2022 through her label Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. The album earned her four Grammy Awards in 2023, including Best Dance/Music Album, making her the most decorated artist in the history of the awards.
After “Revival” dropped, Beyoncé embarked on her groundbreaking Revival World Tour, her highest-grossing tour to date. It grossed over $500 million in its 56 shows.
Beyonce released a concert film. The film was a box office success, grossing over $20 million in its opening weekend.
Ahead of its debut, Beyoncé announced that the “Revival” album was the first part of a three-act project.
After it was released, he shared a message on his website.
“Making this album allowed me a place to dream and escape in a terrible time for the world,” he wrote. “It allowed me to feel free and adventurous when little else moved. My mission was to create a safe space, a space free of judgment. A space free of perfectionism and overthinking. A space to scream, to let go, to feel. Freedom, it's a beautiful journey of exploration.”
In true Beyonce fashion, she didn't give any more details about when she'll be releasing the rest of the act, but the day is here, and it sure looks like there's a lot more in store.
