Beyoncé has just dropped her latest track sampling house music legend Robin S.’ 1990-released track ‘Show Me Love’.

In a pop-meets-UK Funky crossover, ‘BREAK MY SOUL’ is Beyoncé’s latest delve into dance music, also including a sample from Big Freedia’s 2014-released ‘Explode’.

The US singer has yet to let fans in on the theme of the upcoming record, her first since 2016’s ‘Lemonade’. The anticipated album has been hinted to in her recent British Vogue cover story, due out in July.

As described in the recent issue, ‘Renaissance’ will include “music that makes you rise, that turns your mind to cultures and subcultures, to our people past and present, music that will unite so many on the dance floor, music that touches your soul.”

Sitting at 115 BPM, ’BREAK MY SOUL’ could mark a dance-oriented turning point for Bey’s latest release. Produced by the singer herself, Beyoncé also enlisted Jay Z, The-Dream, Tricky Stewart and BlaqNmilD to help produce the new single.
