Break My Soul (The Queens Remix) interpolates Madonna’s 1990 classic Hot 100 No. 1 Vogue, and pays tribute to legendary Black female artists such as Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross, as well as iconic ballroom houses including the House of Aviance and the House of Xtravaganza. The new version of the Renaissance lead single follows four DJ remixes, a “cliquebait” video, and the official visualizer for the original version of the song.
Meanwhile, the original Break My Soul rose to No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated Aug. 13, becoming Beyoncé’s eighth No. 1 single as a soloist, and her first solo chart-topper since 2008’s Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It). Concurrently, her highly acclaimed Renaissance album opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The first part of what Beyoncé has called a three-act project, debuted with 332,000 equivalent album units — the second-best first week of 2022, behind Harry Styles’ Harry’s House.
