Beyonce has sent the internet into meltdown with her new song Break My Soul, which is already the anthem of the summer.
Not only did Queen Bey release her new hit hours earlier than expected, she gave us all the throwback we needed, taking us back to club classics.
Safe to say, fans are obsessed.
It’s the first single from her upcoming studio album Renaissance, and now we’ve got some major hints about what to expect.
She reunited with producers Tricky Stewart and The-Dream for Break My Soul, who she previously worked with on Single Ladies, and husband Jay Z is listed among the songwriters for the track.
So, here’s what you need to know about Break My Soul.
What songs are sampled in Break My Soul?
Break My Soul samples the iconic Show Me Love by Robin S.
While it was originally released in 1990, it was remixed in 1992 by Swedish house music production duo StoneBridge and Nick Nice and re-released.
Show Me Love became a huge hit internationally and became one of the most well known house anthems around.
Break My Soul also features Big Freedia as a guest vocalist, with the New Orleans artist revealing just what it meant to appear on Bey’s comeback single.
‘It feels surreal to be on the track with the Queen Beyonce,’ she wrote on social media.
‘Once again I’m so honored to be apart of this special moment. I’m forever grateful lord.’

When is Beyonce new album out?
Beyonce’s next album is slated for release on July 29 and is believed to be coming in multiple parts.
Fans have been holding out for a full solo studio album from the star since Lemonade, which was released in 2016 and was a hit with both fans and critics – and came with a 65-minute film featuring most of the songs from the album (so watch this space!).
She then released a joint album with husband Jay Z – 2018’s Everything Is Love – as well as a live album, Homecoming, from her 2018 Coachella performance and The Gift In 2019, a soundtrack album following live-action remake of The Lion King.
