About Renaissance concert Film by Beyoncé
Beyoncé’s Renaissance film will merge videos and footages from her tour. The singer released a trailer with the caption “Be careful what you ask me, I just might comply”. On tour, her fans asked where Renaissance visuals are and the singer said “You are the visuals”. People didn’t really understand this, but with Renaissance film coming out immediately after her tour ends, it makes more sense.
Renaissance film will feature audience reactions to her performance and also some narration by Beyoncé. It will be similar to Beyoncé’s Netflix’ music film “Homecoming” which was the concert footage of her performance in Coachella. Meanwhile, this time, her music film will be showing in theatres and not on any streaming platform- at least for now.
With Beyoncé’s Renaissance film, it means fans will not be getting any videos for Renaissance songs. It also means that the visual interpretation of the album is subject to that of the fans, and not of the singer. It will also give fans who couldn’t be at the tour an opportunity to experience the feeling on large screen.
Renaissance film is expected to do well in domestic box office, and hopefully, at the Global Box Office.
There are signs that Renaissance Concert film will do well already, as the movie tickets website- AMC has had to put ticket buyers on hold as a result of the enormous traffic they are experiencing.
The film might feature behind the scene footages of her performance practices and her family’s preparation with her for the tour.

On June 7, 2022, Beyoncé began teasing a new album by removing her profile photo from all of her social media channels. Four days later, the singer’s official website’s homepage featured the text “What is a B7?” Fans observed placeholders for her impending seventh and eighth studio albums on the website.
On June 15, Beyoncé’s BeyGood organization released a collage of studio albums by black musicians on their Twitter account to celebrate Black Music Month by showcasing black brilliance and creativity. A photo of an arm pointing at Brandy’s seventh studio album B7, was also included in the collage (2020).
The following day, Beyoncé unveiled the album and made the Renaissance pre-sale available on her website and digital streaming outlets. There will be 16 tracks on the album.
Edward Enninful, the editor-in-chief of British Vogue, listened to Renaissance music as part of Beyoncé’s cover story. He appreciated what he heard, praising the record’s mix of genres “Music I adore to my core,” she says of the album, which features “soaring vocals and strong beats.”
Music that inspires you, that opens your mind to many cultures and subcultures, to our forefathers and mothers. Music that will bring so many people together on the dance floor. Music that touches your heart.”
Beyoncé confirmed on June 20, 2022, that the album’s lead track, “Break My Soul,” would be released on June 21.
Beyoncé confirmed that she has been working on her upcoming seventh studio album for over a year during her Harper’s Bazaar cover story in August 2021, noting, “With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again.” I see a renaissance taking shape, and I want to be a part of nourishing it in whatever way I can.
She further explained that time “melts away” for her when making a studio album. “Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare,” she said. “One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. “Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio.
After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!”
Variety’s Jem Aswad revealed shortly after Beyoncé announced Renaissance that the album will have dance and country-leaning tracks, with input from composer Ryan Tedder and producer Raphael Saadiq.
