Beyoncé fans declare new song Break My Soul a queer ‘anti-capitalist’ anthem: ‘We really won’

Beyoncé is officially back with her new song “Break My Soul”, and it’s already been declared a gay anthem for the ages.

The song, which serves as lead single off her upcoming album Renaissance, samples the classic house hit “Show Me Love” by Robin S. To the delight of queer people everywhere, it also samples Big Freedia’s “Explode”.

In classic Beyoncé fashion, the singer dropped the song hours earlier than expected on Tidal.

In “Break My Soul”, conveniently released during Pride Month, Beyoncé channels her inner Karl Marx when she sings: “Now, I just fell in love, and I just quit my job / I’m gonna find new drive, damn, they work me so damn hard / Work by nine, then off past five / And they work my nerves, that’s why I cannot sleep at night.”

Everyone is ready to quit their jobs after hearing Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul”

Needless to say, fans are absolutely obsessed, overjoyed, and generally gagged by the new song – and pretty much everyone is ready to quit their jobs and join their local communist political party in Beyoncé’s honour.

Beyoncé saw that it was the summer of late-millennial burnout, the labor movement, ‘90s revival, and queer pride and was like, “Yeah, I can make a song about that”

Others used the opportunity to call for Beyoncé and Lady Gaga to team up for a “Telephone” part two.

No because Lady Gaga liked that tweet of Beyoncé dropping. Beyoncé is in her house era. The Chromatica Ball is starting. This is the perfect alignment for another collab… pic.twitter.com/PyiiWccm2S

“Break My Soul” marks Beyoncé’s first original song since she released “Be Alive” in 2021, which was written for the film King Richard.

The singer is expected to release her hotly-anticipated seventh studio album Renaissance on 29 July.
