Beyoncé’s Renaissance Album Is Officially Here and It’s An Escapist’s Paradise

Top 5 Favorite Songs off Beyonce’s Renaissance Album

Plastic Off the Sofa

OK, so I originally thought this song was going to give sex in the key of “Partition” but I was SADLY MISTAKEN. It is about love though and encompasses impeccable harmonies, runs and scales that would make even the best singers around jealous and incredulous. It has a timeless, classic feel to it that feels like something our parents might’ve sweetly danced to back in the day. It’s definitely a velvety-smooth, vintage-feeling vocal masterpiece and I need the essence of it packaged, bottled, signed, sealed and delivered to me ASAP.

The opening verse saying “Ass gettin’ bigger” is the exact sentiment I presumed to be present in this song and I’m so happy I was right. The entire song really is just Beyoncé creatively talking her shit about her body, her bag, and just all around bad bitchery-ness. It’s yet another bad bitch anthem that makes my little Yonce-loving heart very happy. How’s the saying go? “If you got it, flaunt it.” That’s definitely the vibe present in this song.

“I’m one of one. I’m number one. I’m the only one. Don’t even waste your time trying to compete with me. No one else in this world can think like me.” WHAT do you say after that? The song gives Afro-futuristic ballroom vibes, almost as if the ballroom scenes in Pose took place in the year 3000. It feels ahead of its time while feeling just right for the moment of time that we’re in. With every declaration of “unique,” I feel transported and brought right back home all at the same time.

Honorable Mentions: Break My Soul (duh) and Virgo’s Groove. The Taurus in me won’t let me include the latter song on this last but trust and believe, the song has already gone diamond in my Airpods.
