Beyoncé has surprised fans with the release of a new single, “MY HOUSE,” to celebrate the premiere of her RENAISSANCE concert film. The song is a pulsating, boisterous dance track that showcases the Queen Bey’s rapping skills and her ability to blend musical genres.
The song’s lyrics are about finding solace and empowerment within oneself. Beyoncé raps about creating a space where she can be herself and express her true identity. The song is also a celebration of self-love and acceptance.
“I will always love you/But I’ll never expect you to love me,” Beyoncé croons on the song’s bridge. “When you don’t love yourself/Let’s heal the world/One beautiful action at a time/This is real love.”
Listen to the song below.
“MY HOUSE” arrives days after Beyoncé faced scrutiny on social media for seemingly trying to emulate Kim Kardashian. The mother-of-3 attended the premiere of her concert film “Renaissance” over the weekend at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills, California, sporting a Versace gown and platinum blonde hair. While many praised her look, others criticized it, suggesting that she was trying to appear white.
Coming to the defense of her daughter, Tina Knowles-Lawson called out the “bozos” responsible for spreading such “stupid ignorant self-hating racist statements.” She explained that Beyoncé’s look was part of the “Renaissance” theme, which featured silver attire and platinum hair.
“How sad is it that some of her own people continue the stupid narrative with hate and jealousy,” Knowles-Lawson wrote on Instagram. “Duh, she wore silver hair to match her silver dress as a fashion statement. ALIEN Superstar duh!”
Moments later, Beyoncé seemingly responded to the skin-lightening comments by posting a carousel of photos on her Instagram.
