Fresh on the heels of her new film “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé” arriving in theaters, Beyoncé has dropped a new song, “My House,” to coincide with its release.
Some speculated that there was a new song aired in the credits for the movie, but subsequent viewings put those rumors to bed. But Beyoncé had plans of her own, releasing the distinctly Houston-adjacent “My House” on Thursday night, shortly after the pic released in theaters and right at store-turn on streaming services.
“I will always love you, but I will never expect you to love me when you don’t love yourself,” she says in a spoken-word moment on the song. “Let’s heal the world, one beautiful action at a time, this is real love!”
“My House” is a callback to her Houston roots, recalling the sneer of homegrown acts like UGK. “Bitch I carried / When I grow up I’m gon’ buy me a (house) / Make love in the (house) / Stay up late in this (house) / Don’t give a fuck about my (house) / Then get the fuck up out my (house).”
Beyoncé had the premiere of “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé” in Los Angeles on Saturday night, and tonight had her second premiere in London, where Taylor Swift made an appearance to seemingly return the favor for her appearance at her “Eras Tour” film premiere.
“Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé” is a part-documentary, part-concert film that revisits her record-shattering Renaissance World Tour that concluded in October. In the film, she weaves together performances from the trek with vignettes that invite viewers into her personal life, with appearances from her mother Tina Knowles, husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
