The disc features guest appearances by The-Dream, Pharrell Williams, hit boy, Jay-Z, Drake, Nija Charles, 070 Shake, P2J, Labrinth, Skrillex, AG Cook, Nile Rodgers, Lucky Day, have, Syd, LilJuMadeDaBeat, Sabrina Claudio, Tricky Stewart, Denisia “Blu June” Andrews, Symbolic One, Moi Renee, Raphael Saadiq and much more. Bey, who is notoriously reserved between album cycles, is known to talk about everything on her projects. In the booklet of her new work, she revealed in the twitter that the project will be a trilogy. “Act I has arrived, while two more acts are on the way.”
“This three-act project was recorded over three years during the pandemic,” the singer wrote. She also talks about the inspiration behind her first project in six years. “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and find an escape during a scary time for the world,” said Bey. “It allowed me to feel free and adventurous at a time when little else was moving.”
“My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free from perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, let go, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.” The post includes a never-before-seen photo of her three children, Rumi, Sir and Blue, whom she thanked “for allowing me space, creativity and inspiration” along with her husband, Jay-Z.
Beyonce also paid tribute to her uncle Jonny, whom the artist credits as the “first person to expose me to a lot of music and culture that serves as an inspiration for this album”, as well as those who paved the way for the dance music genre.
