Imma let you finish… but Beyonce’s latest album is arguably her best one yet. Collaborative, fiery and empowering, it is both a nod to the past and a glimmer of hope for the future. Whether you are cruising with your friends and need a good song to bop along to (Break My Soul), working out or at a party (Pure/Honey), have a new love interest (Summer Renaissance or All Up In Your Mind) or simply needing motivation to get up (Energy), Renaissance is a gift of revival for the heart and soul. For me, it is a convenient compilation of the only anthems I will need going into Summer 2023.
