Renaissance Act II: Beyoncé announces new album in Super Bowl ad

The long-awaited second part of Beyoncé’s Renaissance project was announced during a Super Bowl ad.

“Okay, you’re ready. Release the new music,” said the singer at the end of the announcement by the American communications giant Verizon.

Immediately following the announcement, Beyoncé released two new songs titled Texas Hold ‘Em and 16 Carriages.

The album, due out March 29, is expected to lean toward the country genre.


In the ad, Beyoncé attempts to overload Verizon’s capacity and ‘break the Internet’ in increasingly absurd ways, including playing the saxophone, creating a “Beyonc-AI robot,” dressing like Bar-bey (Barbie), running for president, and act of space.

Veep star Tony Hale is aware of whether the Internet has crashed in response.

At the end of the announcement, from the rocket in orbit, she radios back: “Okay, they’re ready. Drop the new music.”

Beyoncé was at the Super Bowl in Las Vegas with her husband Jay-Z and her daughters Blue Ivy and Rumi.

She was filmed in the crowd calmly sipping a drink in the moments following the announcement.

The first installment of Beyoncé’s Renaissance project was released in July 2022. Shortly after, she revealed that the album was the first of a three-act project.

The album earned him a record-breaking 32nd Grammy.

Almost a year later, she embarked on the Renaissance world tour, which was later released as a film.
