Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé was full of surprises, and Queen B prepared a special gift for her fans at the very end. Her brand-new single “My House” was released as a part of Renaissance end credits, before hitting the music streaming platforms.
Beyoncé opens this track with a monologue, “I will always love you, but I will 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!” before delivering an epic hip-hop-infused anthem inspired by her Houston roots.
The-Dream, who collaborated with Beyoncé on such songs as “Single Ladies” and “Break My Soul” helped her bring “My House” to life, and he’s credited as its co-writer and producer. This is Beyoncé’s first solo single since the release of Renaissance, and it comes months after her Travis Scott collaboration “Delresto (Echoes)” from the rapper’s latest album Utopia.
Beyoncé’s highly-anticipated Renaissance concert film finally came out on December 1. It earned $11.6 million on its first day and is projected to gross $20–25 million during its opening weekend. Both critics and fans welcomed it with open arms, and it currently holds a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
