Beyhive Twitter’s funniest reactions and memes to Beyonce’s ‘Renaissance’ album

In case you missed it, our queen Beyoncé just released her seventh studio album, “Renaissance” last Friday. The beyhive— Beyonce’s fan base, celebrities, and music critics bowed down to the singer as she released another masterpiece in her entire career.

Hinting for almost a year now, Beyoncé has been keeping her fans excited about her latest album with songs about self-love, in disco beats that can make everyone in the room dance like there’s no tomorrow.

“With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible,” the singer hinted in her cover interview for the Harper’s BAZAAR September 2021 issue.

“I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!” she added.

In honor of the one-week release of “Renaissance”, here are the funniest reaction memes from the fans.

A+ for the transitions

Fans commend Beyonce for showing off her artistry (as always!) in her latest album through seamless transitions. One user tweeted, “these transitions between every song #RENAISSANCE”.

Fans couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the transition between songs “Cuff It,” “Energy,” and “Break My Soul.”

They also took note of how songs “Alien Superstar” and “Church Girl” are very contrasting to each other. The result? A meme.

Funniest reviews from the beyhive

Thanks to this latest work of art, fans can’t pick which one is their favorite. One user said, “Beyoncé got me adding every song to the favorites. SHES CLEARING.”

It may have taken some a little too far as she inspired one user to “lock us back up!” since the singer said that she was working on the album while in quarantine.

One of her songs, “Alien Superstar”, may or may not have been inviting our extra-terrestrial friends to a dance challenge.

Celebrities such as Grammy award-winning singer SZA and TV host Jimmy Fallon woke up early to listen to and appreciate the icon’s new album.

As part of the album’s release, she released pre-merchandise available to pre-order on her website. She also had a retro-futuristic glam cover for British Vogue for July 2022 issue.

Prior to the “Renaissance” album, the 40-year-old singer released two albums entitled “Beyoncé” (2013) and “Lemonade” (2016).
