Beyoncé Announces New Album ‘Act II: Renaissance’ After Super Bowl Ad


Beyoncé has new music on the way. On Sunday, the 42-year-old singer took to Instagram to announce that Act II: Renaissance will be available on March 29.


She shared the news with a country-style video on Instagram, teasing that the first song off the record may be called “Texas Hold ‘Em.”


Indeed, shortly after her initial announcement, Beyoncé revealed that the first two songs off the album, “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages,” are out now.


The announcement came after Beyoncé starred in a commercial for Verizon, in which she, with the help of Tony Hale, tried to break the internet through a series of promotional stunts.


The ad ended with Beyoncé exclaiming, “Drop the new music!” While no further information was revealed at the time, Beyoncé’s follow-up Instagram post answered all of fans’ burning questions.
