Beyoncé revealed her first full-length country album, titled Renaissance Act II, during Super Bowl LVIII. Here is everything we know.

Born in Houston, Texas, Beyoncé is as country as they come. She might have largely explored and conquered many other genres in her career, from R&B to pop and dance, but you know what they say. You can’t take the country out of the girl.

During Super Bowl LVIII, the megastar teased new music via her glamorous Verizon commercial, which ended with the words: “Drop the new music.” Moments later, two new country songs appeared on streaming services and sent fans into an absolute frenzy. The singles were accompanied by a viral video that gave fans a glimpse into the musical journey.
