I have nothing but respect for MY president. Renaissance is pure house bliss by one of music's greatest voices. Beyoncé goes from serenading you with her beautiful high pitched choir to swerving all over you with her rap game in an instant, and yet it all feels so natural. For the most part, the beats and instrumentation are genuinely insane with so many layers that it'll take tons of listens to absorb it all. That said, I feel like Beyoncé is acting like this album is way more ... read more

I mean I really can't say anything that hasn't already been said about this immediately iconic album. Beyoncé's lyricism, samples, production, and songwriting are all stellar. I will say some songs are leaps and bounds more enjoyable and memorable than others and this is not an album I can listen to front to back repeatedly because of both its length and those more uninteresting tracks, but I'm still a very big fan of this record.

when an unstoppable force meets a very movable object. this spear is crafted with a boisterous flame, an energy both uniquely proud and intently self reflective, guaranteeing its eager edge will crack any shield in its skyrocketing trajectory

I don't get it. I wish I could, but I don't. Beyonce's personality is never not invited and the production for what its worth is still quite good, but to be honest it doesn't fully click.

I've never been a big fan of this pop's subgenre, but i must admit this album is a piece of good dance music. Beyonce is still great and let the God bless her

The intro track is so aimless; had me worried for the rest of the album. But here we are.

NR

Longe de ser o melhor álbum dela, porém ainda é um álbum acima da média do pop mainstream. Talvez esse seja o mínimo do mínimo quando se fala em Beyoncé.

O conceito pode parecer batido à primeira vista, visto que o dance pop voltou com tudo nos últimos dois/três anos. Contudo, ela trouxe algo a mais, por conseguir conciliar a sua bem conhecida militância a um projeto divertido e acessível - bem nos moldes ... read more

One of the best Dance albums I have listened to, blends so many unique sounds and Beyonce's energy is amazing. Her vocals are as good as ever. Super good album and a must listen.

It‘s mega versatile and flows very nicely. This big homage to all kinds of Dance Music just slaps. It is so detailed and well produced. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the lengh of this LP, which is 62 minutes. It‘s a little long for my taste. My favourite track must be the closing track SUMMER RENAISSANCE.

*RENAISSANCE* is the seventh studio record from the modern-day pop queen herself, Beyoncé. After the success and praise from her previous project, 2016's *Lemonade*, Beyoncé stayed active in the music scene, releasing multiple projects over the following years. In 2018, she teamed up with the now-forgiven JAY-Z to release the collaborative record, *EVERYTHING IS LOVE*. In 2019 she pulled double-duty, releasing a live album in April before serving as the headlining artist of the ... read more

muito bem construído com diversos gêneros mas sem perder a coesão. ele é energético e animador do início ao fim.

Beyonce again became overrated female artist with this hyper produced album. Great idea of the seamless joint of songs like a dicso night, but here we hear less catchy pop songs that she gave us in Lemonade. Some melodies too predictable and ordinary. But Renaissance become strong in the middle after ordinary "Break My Soul"

Best: Virgo's Night, Church Girl, I'm that Girl, Pure, Plastic Off The Sofa, Move.
Worst: All Up In Your Mind.

Singing at the top of her lungs Beyonce > Low-key Beyonce

But still, this is pretty damn good project. I do wish there was more energy overall, and I think the songs aren't really that catchy, but I found the album to be very enjoyable and entertaining at least.

no way at all appealing to be. Beyoncé has one of the boldest voices in contemporary pop music and her talents are wasted over house beats.

Beyoncé's return after a 6 year hiatus is different from any of her other albums; but while it's more experimental, it shows Beyoncé at her plateau or peak in music creation; which isn't a bad one to be at at all.

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is one of the most popular, influential and genre-defining artists of our generation. This album will show that she will influence another genre of music; dance pop. 'RENAISSANCE' is her first attempt at making a dance pop/house ... read more

May be a little underwhelming in that Beyonce is catching up to trends here rather than setting them like her previous two records did, but the spin she puts here pays homage to dance music history so well that it'll win you over anyways.

Compared to her last projects, this one isn't very personal. It's more like a dance pop/house experience, where she can brag about herself, what somehow works, because of the context of the album and the general perception of Beyoncé. It's a fun experience at times, that isn't such as pretentious, as previous albums.

After a whole week with this record i can finally point out that this is one of the best albums of this decade, and i'll tell you why: this is going down on history as one of the most self-referential works and literally renaiscence pieces from pop music. At the same time she showed us everything that went wrong with Drake's album: Honestly, Nevermind it's an album from someone that never experienced profundity, doing purely mall music. Beyoncé digged deep on queer, black, latinx ... read more

Em uma celebração á cultura negra, Beyoncé fez seu tão esperado comeback solo após anos se envolvendo em projetos musicais paralelos.
Para nossa surpresa e privilégio, o disco traz uma sonoridade Pop/House, onde a Queen B mostra toda sua versatilidade e habilidade única como intérprete nos entregando uma ótima performance ao longo das 16 faixas que compõe a obra.
Há de se destacar os samples presentes no disco, ... read more
