Beyonce’s birthday celebration comes after the ‘Crazy in Love’ hitmaker dropped her seventh album ‘Renaissance’ – her first in over six years – in July after sharing her the new song ‘Break My Soul’ in June.
On Instagram, the Grammy winner – who is yet to drop the hotly-anticipated visuals for the 16 tracks – remarked making the LP made her “feel free”.
Beyonce wrote: “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving.
“My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment, a place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”
