Beyoncé Reveals ‘Renaissance’ Tracklist, Folks Are Amused Drake Is Involved In One Song


Beyoncé set the Internet on fire when she hopped on IG Stories with a Renaissance tracklist! Turns out, Drake is credited as a writer on one song and folks are amused. More inside….

We’re exactly one week away from Beyoncé snatches our edges and wigs when she drops her seventh studio album, ACT 1: Renaissance. The BEYHive is anxiously awaiting the dance album that will bring back the legendary Studio 54 disco era to our ears.

To further build up the anticipation, Bey released the tracklist for the upcoming LP, which features the titles of 16 brand new songs, including her first single “Break My Soul,” on her IG Stories. She doesn’t do IG Stories often, but when she does, the Hive is grateful. 

Along with the song titles, a list of composer credits were also revealed, apparently by Apple Music.



The credited composers include her husband Jay-Z, Drake, The Dream, Pharrell Williams, Skrillex, 070 Shake, and more. Folks were amused Drizzy was “in the room” for Bey’s album and then dropped his own dance-heavy album a month before Mrs. Carter’s drop.


Drizzy is featured on Bey’s new song titled “Heated.” Below is an alleged snippet that has been making its social media rounds:
