Queen Bey surprisingly releases a new single in time for her highly anticipated concert film, Renaissance.
The track, which marks Beyoncé’s first solo release since Renaissance in July 2022, begins with a chant:
“Ooh, who they came to see? Me
Who rep like me? Don’t make me get up out my seat
Who let my goons out that house? Uh, huh, who?
Who let my goons out that house? Uh, uh, who?
Queen Bey is then heard going into full rap mode driven by dynamic horns and an infectious trap beat.
“It fits right in with the dance/house tracks she delivered on her hit album Renaissance.” — Stephanie Holland from The Root
Shortly after, fans noticed that the single was reminiscent of the HBCU tribute energy of Beyoncé’s 2019 Homecoming performance at Coachella in 2018.
Beyoncé has been candid in recent years regarding the cultural influence and impact of HBCU’s in her life. In her 2019 concert film, Homecoming, she shares how she took inspiration from HBCU’s like Texas Southern University and Prairie View A&M University.
“I always dreamed of going to an HBCU. My college was Destiny’s Child. My college was traveling around the world, and life was my teacher. When I decided to do Coachella…it was more important that I brought our culture to Coachella.”
“I wanted all of these different characters, and I wanted it to feel the way I felt when I went to battle of the bands.” she explained. So I studied my history, I studied my past, and I put every mistake, all of my triumphs, and my 22-year career into my two-hour Homecoming performance.”
What do you think of Beyoncé’s latest single? Is it giving HBCU vibes?
‘My House’ is now available on YouTube, Tidal, and Apple Music.
