Everything We Know About Beyoncé’s ‘Act II’ So Far

From the moment Beyoncé announced her 2022 album Renaissance, she made it clear that the project was only the beginning of a multi-act body of work. And now, after keeping fans waiting almost two years for a follow-up, the 42-year-old superstar has finally announced that Act II is on its way.

True to Bey fashion, the “Halo” singer unloaded the news with basically no prior warning. While she was casually enjoying the 2024 Super Bowl with Jay-Z in Las Vegas Feb. 11, fans all over the world were freaking out over the Act II announcement that simultaneously went live on her socials (but more on that later).

Once it arrives, Act II will mark Bey’s eighth studio record. It’ll also vie to become her eighth straight No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as all seven of her previous LPs have debuted atop the chart — from 2003’s Dangerously in Love to Renaissance.

And as excited as the Hive is to enter the Act II era, Renaissance is certainly a difficult one to leave behind. The album found the former Destiny’s Child member embracing an entirely new sound inspired by electro-house music, traveling the world on her record-breaking Renaissance Tour and earning a whopping four Grammys at the 2023 awards — best dance album, best dance/electronic recording for “Break My Soul,” best traditional R&B performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa” and best R&B song for “Cuff It” — after which she became the winningest artist in Recording Academy history.

More information about Act II will come in due time. But for now, see everything we know about the album so far below.
