Beyoncé has released a brand new single, ‘Break The Soul’. It’s the first taster of her new album, Renaissance (due July 29). It’s her first album since 2016’s Lemonade.

‘Break My Soul’ was due to be out at midnight ET. However, it actually hit streaming service Tidal, just before 10pm.

You can check out the official lyric video below. It’s a house-inspired, self-empowerment anthem, with Beyoncé warning those who might do her harm, ‘You won’t break my soul’, and threatening to quit her job, find new drive and find new motivation.
