Beyoncé's upcoming album Renaissance will mark the star's first solo album in six years.

It’s finally happening! Beyoncé’s seventh studio album, Renaissance, officially gets its release date. Columbia Records took to social media early Thursday morning and announce the release of the Grammy Winner’s new album. The official social media account of Columbia Records shared an image of a black square with ‘act i’ and ‘RENAISSANCE’ written in white on each side. The record label simply captioned the post, “Beyoncé. RENAISSANCE. July 29.”

The same graphic was shared on social media by high-def streamer Tidal around the same time. Beyoncé also updated the bios on her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to reflect the upcoming release. The soon-to-be-available album is said to have 16-tracks total, per BeyLegion. Four unique box sets are currently available for pre-order on Beyoncé’s website, which includes a CD, T-shirt, mini-poster and a 28-page photo booklet.

Beyoncé’s Renaissance will mark the star’s first solo album in six years. She previously released 2003’s Dangerously in Love, 2006’s B’Day, and 2008’s I Am… Sasha Fierce, 2011’s 4, 2013’s Beyoncé and 2016’s Lemonade. Beyoncé also appeared on the 2018 collaborative album Everything Is Love with husband JAY-Z, as well as 2019’s The Lion King: The Gift, a soundtrack for Disney’s live-action adaptation that features original music by the artist.

The star also released Homecoming: The Live Album in 2019, which went hand in hand with her iconic Coachella performance from the year prior. The LP features live renditions of some of the former Destiny Child member’s biggest hits. News of Beyoncé’s latest album comes about after she dropped hints for her Beyhive. The “Crazy in Love” singer previously teased fans with some potentially big news last week, mysteriously deleting her profile photos from all her social media account.

Beyoncé last deleted her branding right before she dropped Lemonade years ago. Beyoncé has been known to utilize the element of surprise with her solo music career, providing no warning before she dropped her self-titled 2013 album exclusively on iTunes. However, the lack of marketing didn’t hurt, as the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Beyoncé new album will release on July 29, 2022.
