Other Beyoncé fans were quick to spy that the singer had previously hinted at the title of her upcoming release in an interview with Harper's Bazaar in 2021.
The musician revealed to the outlet she had been in the studio 'for a year and a half,' recording throughout the pandemic.
Addressing what she had in store for her next release, she said: "I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible."
The singer also noted that even 'after 31 years,' creating music feels 'just as exciting as it did when [she] was nine years old'.
Beyoncé resolved: "There's nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio."
Renaissance Act One is set for release on 29 July.
