Beyoncé Unveils 'Cliquebait' Version of 'Break My Soul'

Klaudia//August 5, 2022
Beyoncé isn’t quite done dropping new remixes of her Renaissance lead single, “Break My Soul.”

On Thursday (Aug. 4), Queen Bey’s “Cliquebait” version of “Break My Soul” was released, adding a fun club remix to an already dance-heavy track. The accompanying YouTube video features the star dancing atop the silver horse on her latest album cover.

Beyoncé Confirmed She Will Remove an Ableist Slur From a Song on Renaissance

Klaudia//August 2, 2022
Only a few days have passed since Beyoncé’s newest album, Renaissance, changed our lives. But the release wasn’t completely without controversy. The Grammy winner is now facing backlash over a lyric that contains an ableist slur.

The disabled community called out the pop star’s song “Heated,” which includes the lyrics, “spazzing on that ass, spaz on that ass.”

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, in the U.S., spaz is popular slang meaning “go crazy,” which is its intent within the lyrics of “Heated.” But the word, while generally used to mean the latter domestically, is an ableist insult in the U.K. and other countries (including to some people in the U.S.) since it refers to the medical condition spastic paralysis. In a statement sent to Insider, a rep for Beyoncé confirmed that the lyric will be changed. “The word, not used intentionally in a harmful way, will be replaced,” the statement said.

Beyoncé hasn't yet debuted the new lyric, but we’re guessing it’s going to keep us dancing.

Meet Nova Wav, the Songwriting and Producing Duo Behind Half of "Renaissance"

Klaudia//August 1, 2022
Two years ago, songwriting and producing duo Nova Wav first chatted with Beyoncé over pizza about what would become her seventh full-length album: “Renaissance.”

Released on Friday, the 16-track record is filled to the brim with infectious, danceable tracks, and Nova Wav — made up of Brittany “Chi” Coney and Denisia “Blu June” Andrews — are honored to have a hand in eight of the songs. The duo, who has produced and written for Jay-Z, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Kehlani, DJ Khaled, H.E.R., Jazmine Sullivan and more, first met Beyoncé in 2014. In 2020, they struck gold as writers on Beyoncé’s single “Black Parade,” which went on to win a Grammy for best R&B performance. So when they got the call to work on “Renaissance” in the midst of the pandemic, the duo was more than ready to dive in.

“She wanted people to feel like they were escaping,” June tells Variety of Beyoncé’s vision for the album. “We’re outside again, and even if things are still iffy right now in the climate of the world, she gave us something to dance to and something to feel good about.”

Below, Nova Wav breaks down a few of the songs on “Renaissance” — including writing “Cuff It” and “Summer Renaissance” after a trip to the strip club — gushes over Beyoncé and shares what the album means to them as women in a male-dominated field.

Tina Knowles Gushes Over Beyoncé's Album Dedication to Uncle Johnny

Klaudia//July 30, 2022
Beyoncé‘s Renaissance era is about love in all forms, and in an open letter alongside the freshly released album, the superstar dedicated the 16-song set to her children, her husband, and her family as well as LGBTQ+ “pioneers” — particularly her late Uncle Johnny.

“A big thank you to my Uncle Johnny,” the letter reads. “He was my godmother and the first person to expose me to a lot of the music and culture that serve as inspiration for this album. Thank you to all of the pioneers who originate culture, to all of the fallen angels whose contributions have gone unrecognized for far too long. This is a celebration for you.”

In response to the sweet dedication, Bey’s mother Tina Knowles took to Instagram to share her own memories with her beloved nephew. “This dedication was beautiful ! It included my Nephew Johnny on this photo with me when I am 38 years old he is 40 we are at a club he made this dress for me it was so cute!” she wrote alongside a photo of the open letter.

She continued, “Johnny was the closest human being in the world to me we were inseparable growing up ! Later He was my nanny / housekeeper / designer / Dance partner / confident and bestie. I laughed constantly with him and trusted him unconditionally! When he died a piece of me went with him . Solange and Beyonce worshiped him . He helped me raise them. And influenced their sense of style and uniqueness!”

Knowles went on to reveal that Johnny made Beyoncé’s prom dress, which the singer references in Renaissance track, “Heated,” when she chants, “Uncle Johnny made my dress/ That cheap Spandex, she looks a mess.”

“I got so teary eyed,” Knowles said of the lyric. “You see Johnny loved house music ! And introduced my kids to it early on. He is smiling from Heaven at Bey right now ! Saying you did that Ms Thing !! We love you Johnny and we miss you constantly . Wish you were here to dance with me we would tear it up!!!”

An Oral History of Beyoncé in Austin Powers: Goldmember

Klaudia//July 17, 2022
Beyoncé has given the world innumerable gifts: the lyric “tell MCI to cut the phone poles,” the Bob Fosse–inspired “Single Ladies” dance, the infamous Met Gala elevator drama, decadent pregnancy announcements, this GIF, Coachella. Which Beyoncé souvenir am I most grateful for? I choose what now feels like an anomaly in her rarefied, holier-than-holy pop career: Foxxy Cleopatra, a.k.a. “a whole lotta woman.”

Austin Powers in Goldmember, the third installment in a franchise that launched to modest success and ballooned to an abiding cultural phenomenon, turns 20 this summer. Destiny’s Child would release one final album in 2004, but Goldmember — the seventh-highest-grossing movie of 2002 — marks Beyoncé’s transition from girl-group captain to singular superstar. It’s when Beyoncé Knowles became simply Beyoncé, even if it feels nothing like the Beyoncé we know today. With the movie came her first solo single (the underrated funk jam “Work It Out“) and a bridge to the image-defining smash “Crazy in Love,” generally considered her true breakthrough.

At the time, Beyoncé was anxious to prove herself as an actress. (Crossover fame remained very important in the early 2000s. Just ask Mariah Carey.) Her only credit was Carmen: A Hip Hopera, MTV’s contemporary spin on the classic French opera. That’s where Goldmember producer John Lyons got the idea to enlist her to play Foxxy, a stylish FBI agent who used to shag Austin (Mike Myers) and moonlights as a nightclub singer at Studio 69. As Beyoncé recounted in 2002, she auditioned twice. “I read with Mike and just tried to be the straight guy. When I left, I was convinced I wasn’t going to get it,” she told Newsweek. For her callback, she “went back in wearing a Pam Grier–like catsuit, an Afro wig, and had memorized every blaxploitation film ever made.” Her fate was sealed.
