World stop… and keep stopping! Beyoncé sure knows how to keep the hive on their toes! Just a few days after the announcement of the release date of her album, the artist released a new single on a Tuesday when the norm (which she set) for new music is usually on Fridays.
Beyoncé making Friday releases the industry standard and then turning around and releasing new music on a Tuesday again is peak Beyoncé behavior.

The singer’s announcement of the new song was pretty underrated. Beyoncé’s bio sections on Instagram and Twitter were quietly updated midday to read: “6 break my soul midnight ET.” As if fans weren’t already excited for the new drop, she then released the song on Tidal three hours before midnight. Everyone else was able to hear the new song at midnight, when she broke the internet… and apparently souls.
“Break My Soul” is the sixth song on her long-awaited sequel to “Lemonade.” Its a disco dance track sampling Big Freedia’s ‘Explode’ and Robin S.’s ‘Show Me Love.’ Writing credits also include Jay-Z and Adam Pigott.
