LOS ANGELES -- This is Beyoncé's house, and we're just living in it.
Queen Bey dropped a new single, "My House," on Friday to herald the opening weekend of her much-anticipated concert movie, "Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé."
"A gift from the queen," exclaimed Apple Music in an Instagram post with a photo of Beyoncé dressed in metallic body armor, much like the Afrofuturist bodysuits she displayed during her tour.
Last week, "Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé" premiered at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Directed by Beyoncé, the film shows both onstage moments and the painstaking, behind-the-scenes process of pulling together the massive world tour. It draws from footage from at least a dozen tour dates, including the September night at Inglewood's SoFi Stadium when the singer was joined by both Diana Ross and Kendrick Lamar.
The movie builds on Beyoncé's record-breaking Renaissance tour, which extends the experience for fans who attended and allows those who may not have had hundreds of dollars to spend on a ticket to take part in the phenomenon. At a runtime of two hours, 48 minutes, the movie is just as long as some of the tour stops.
