Beyoncé’s Renaissance tops global charts and breaks streaming record

Beyoncé has thanked her fans and everyone involved in ‘Renaissance’ after the album topped the charts around the globe and broke a streaming record.

The 40-year-old Grammy winner’s acclaimed seventh studio album has debuted atop the Billboard Hot 200 chart in the US and has been crowned the biggest debut by a woman with 332,000 units shifted.

The ‘Crazy in Love’ hitmaker is the only female artist to have all her albums debut at No.1.

The album also topped charts in the UK, Ireland, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Australia, Canada, Denmark, New Zealand, South Africa, and Brazil.

‘Renaissance’ is now the most-streamed album on Spotify in a single day by a female artist in 2022.

The lead single ‘Break My Soul’ also topped the Billboard Hot 100, with the Destiny’s Child star joining Sir Paul McCartney and the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, as the third artist in history to have 20 top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 as a solo artist and 10 on the chart as a member of a group.

Beyoncé said the record was the result of “years of experimentation” and “blood, sweat and tears”, and she can’t thank her team, collaborators, and everyone involved in the making of the much-lauded dance record, including Grace Jones, Honey Dijon, Beam, Skrillex and BloodPop, enough.

In a letter posted on Beyonce.com, she wrote: “We did it!!!

“Thank you so much for your love and support. Nothing made me happier than seeing a club full of people sing every single word to every song from top to bottom.

“This was years of experimentation. This was years of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears… I’m thankful that it was received and understood.”

She continued: “Thank you to my beautiful team for your heart and grind.

“Thank you to all the brilliant collaborators and musicians, composers, and everyone involved in creating this piece of art.

“And thank you to the absolute best fans on the planet.

“I’m grateful to be loved by you.”

She signed off the post: “I love y’all deep. B.”

‘Renaissance’ is the first part of a trilogy.
