Invigorating VH1 Hit From 1996, BREAK MY SOUL

You cannot tell me that it is not 1996 and I’m home sick from elementary school and watching this song dominate the hour of VH1. This song is an instant Summer hit with lyrics infusing a rebellious strength to be. I’m not calling this a disco number, this is a carefree 90’s renaissance of freedom

You cannot tell me that it is not 1996 and I’m home sick from elementary school and watching this song dominate the hour of VH1. This song is an instant Summer hit with lyrics infusing a rebellious strength to be. I’m not calling this a disco number, this is a carefree 90’s renaissance of freedom anthems.

And I especially loved this great commentary from “Beyonce Drops Disco-fied New Single, ‘Break My Soul’,” By Jem Aswad:

Three hours before the announced release time of her new single, Beyonce surprise-dropped “Break My Soul,” the first single from her forthcoming seventh solo studio album “Renaissance,” and it’s the Bey jam fans have been waiting for: A driving dance track co-produced by the “Single Ladies” team of Tricky Stewart and The-Dream, with a plinking, insistent hook, a hot beat and periodic exhortations from Big Freedia.”

“Release your anger, release your mind/ Release your job, release the time/ Release your trade, release the stress/ Release the love, forget the rest.”

…In an apparent slight to major streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, the song initially appeared only on Tidal — the streaming service co-owned by Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z — three hours before its announced release time of midnight ET, and on Vevo/YouTube an hour or so later. Beyonce has a history of this: Her 2016 “Lemonade” album was available only on Tidal for three years, a move that likely cost her millions in streaming royalties.

I want this lyrically foretold “foundation” to be entirely owned by Beyonće. Surprise after surprise, she is re-defining the music industry’s future. And it’s a cathartic experience to behold.
