Multi-award-winning singer, Beyoncé has unveiled the artwork for her upcoming seventh studio album titled ‘Renaissance.’
The image on the artwork shows the 40-year-old mother of three sitting atop a celestial holographic horse, with objects placed in just the right places to conceal specific parts of her body.
“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” she said on Instagram.
“It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are,” she concluded.
Meanwhile, a Twitter user drw special attention to the cover saying it appears to be based on a Renaissance painting of Lady Godiva, a noblewoman. Another person compared the artwork to Bianca Jagger riding into Studio 54 on a horse, which is not surprising given the house music and pastiche disco on her most recent song and Vogue photo shoot.
