In the past, the 40-year-old singer has not revealed many details about her albums. She launched her self-titled album 'Out of the blue' in December 2013 and released a teaser trailer for 2016's ‘Lemonade’ just one week before its release.

The multi-Grammy-winning singer has kept busy in the intervening years, collaborating with her husband Jay-Z on 2018's ‘Everything is Love’ and releasing a live album and film, 'Homecoming', the following year. She performed at Coachella in 2018, which is considered one of the greatest festival performances ever. Apart from this, the singer contributed to a number of creative projects like the song ‘Black Parade’, for Disney’s ‘The Lion King’, which won her her 28th Grammy, and the visual album 'Black Is King' in 2020. It is a companion piece to Beyoncé's handpicked album, ‘The Lion King: The Gift.’
