Beyonce releases surprise new music after star-studded London Renaissance film premiere


Music superstar Beyonce has released a new single to commemorate the "opening weekend" of the Renaissance tour film.

The new track, titled My House, was released following the UK premiere of Renaissance: A Film By Beyonce in Leicester Square, which follows the 39-date world tour of her 2022 Grammy-winning album.

Beyonce raps throughout the track which she co-wrote and co-produced with The Dream, real name Terius Gesteelde-Diamant.

The official Instagram account for Apple Music said: "A gift from the queen for the opening weekend of the Renaissance film.

"Listen now to @beyonce's new track 'MY HOUSE'."

The lyrics include: "I will always love you, but I'll never expect you to love me when you don't love yourself.

"Let's heal the world, one beautiful action at a time, this is real love."

It comes after US superstar Taylor Swift appeared at the UK premiere of the Renaissance film following Beyonce's appearance at The Eras Tour film premiere in October.

Swift later devoted an Instagram post to Beyonce, praising the music star for her influence and "generosity of spirit".

The UK premiere of film also saw Blue Ivy, who features in the film, pose for pictures with her mother Beyonce.

During the picture-taking, Beyonce can be seen asking if her daughter is cold before stopping pictures to seemingly get her a jacket, in a video posted on Instagram by Beyonce's mother Tina Knowles.

Ms Knowles captioned the video: "This has me in tears right now. To the fans that are there uplifting this beautiful talented 11-year-old, I thank you, I appreciate you."

Other stars in attendance at the Renaissance: A Film By Beyonce premiere in the UK included actress Blake Lively, Destiny's Child star Michelle Williams, and more.

It is not known whether My House is a stand-alone song or will feature in an upcoming album.

Elsewhere, Beyoncé is taking over Flannels once again to coincide with the concert documentary release. It's the second time this year, she has done so having turned it into The Renaissance Flagship back in May during her five-day London residency.

This time around, the luxury retailer will be exclusively stocking the 16-piece Renaissance merch collection in their London, Liverpool and Sheffield stores from December 1.

"We’re so excited to be teaming up with Parkwood Entertainment again. The first Renaissance Flagship was an absolute highlight in a year of activity at Flannels X – the response was overwhelming – so this time we knew we wanted to bring the experience to more stores in the UK," says Beckie Stanion, Frasers Group CMO of the partnership.

They’ll also be honouring the mega star’s affinity for all things silver (with Beyoncé dubbing her all-silver concert dress code her “House of Chrome”) with special edits of their favourite chrome pieces (think Diesel’s chrome 1DR bag) and a special appearance from the encrusted horse, dubbed Reneigh by fans, which was ridden by Beyoncé in her closing number.

The pop-up opened exclusively on Friday morning at 8:30am to the Grammy winner's Beyhive, 90mins before it opened to the public.
