Beyoncé has shared a new trailer for Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé. Check it out below. “In this world that is very male-dominated, I’ve had to be really tough,” she says in a voiceover. “To balance motherhood and being on this stage, it just reminds me of who I really am.” The movie arrives in theaters on December 1.
The movie, based on the Renaissance World Tour, which got under way in May, will be the first video accompaniment to the Renaissance era, though a “Cliquebait” clip accompanied “Break My Soul” and “Summer Renaissance” soundtracked a “brand campaign” for Tiffany & Co. Beyoncé also unveiled a Kendrick Lamar remix of “America Has a Problem.” When Renaissance was announced, Beyoncé referred to it as the first act in a three-part series.
The Renaissance World Tour setup included a flying disco horse and mechanical robot arms. In addition to a huge crew, Beyoncé included her daughter Blue Ivy in choreographies and invited Arca to open with a surprise DJ set in Barcelona.
This year, Beyoncé became the artist with the most Grammy wins of all time. She took home Grammys for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best R&B Song.
