Beyoncé Teases New Visuals With ‘Summer Renaissance’ Clip

On Monday, Renaissance singer-songwriter Beyoncé shared a new “Summer Renaissance” clip to promote her Tiffany & Co campaign.

Beyoncé hits the ballroom in a new Tiffany & Co. promotion. Donna Summer-sampled track “Summer Renaissance,” the final song on Bey’s seventh album Renaissance is played in the black and white clip while the vocalist and partygoers burn up the dancefloor. In the Mark Romanek-directed clip, Bey drips in diamonds while attending a late-night gathering that replicates Studio 54 during the ’70s.

Although fans anticipate a visual album from the 28-time Grammy Award winner, the Tiffany & Co. clip should satiate them for awhile, as Acts II and III of Renaissance are expected to release in the coming months.

Bey “decided to lead without visuals giving fans the opportunity to be limitless in their expansive listening journey,” as a press release for Renaissance stated. “It is a chance again to be listeners and not viewers, while taking in every gem of the pristine production,” the release continued.

“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” Bey shared in press materials. “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.”

Bey will reportedly hold a stadium tour next summer, her latest since 2018’s On The Run II with her husband and longtime collaborator Jay-Z.
