Beyoncé drops Renaissance film trailer
Beyoncé fans are desperate for a live album of the Renaissance World Tour but what would the tracklist be?
Listen to this article
As soon as the Renaissance World Tour kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden in May, the BeyHive have been begging Beyoncé to give us a Renaissance live album. All the arrangements in the show are exquisite and fans are desperate to stream and sing along to Beyoncé's new versions of classic hits like 'Dangerously In Love 2' and every single Renaissance track.
Now, that Beyoncé has released Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé in cinemas, the chances of a Renaissance live album are starting to seem more and more possible. Beyoncé's website also mysteriously went completely down for five hours on December 18th. With that in mind, here's what we know so far including a release date, tracklist and more.
As it stands, Beyoncé is yet to say anything about a Renaissance live album. However, the last time that Beyoncé released a concert film was Homecoming in 2019 and, sure enough, a live album was released alongside the movie. With this in mind, it's possible Beyoncé will release a live album in the coming days or when the movie drops on streaming.
Now, members of the BeyHive will know that we've been burned by our queen before. Neither The Mrs. Carter World Tour, nor The Formation World Tour had live albums. However, they didn't have films either. In other words, it seems like we're much more likely to get a Renaissance live album because a concert film definitely exists.
Another sign that points to a potential live album is the fact that Beyoncé has released a new song called 'My House' that appears in the Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé credits. Could this be a 'Before I Let Go' / Homecoming situation, where 'My House' acts as a bonus track on a Renaissance live album?

Beyoncé's website also mysteriously went down on December 18th for five hours, leading fans to guess that a live album was about to be announced or the elusive visuals. However, Beyoncé's label Parkwood later tweeted: "Fixed it".
Hours later, Beyoncé released a new video announcing that Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé would be shown in more countries. However, she is still yet to say anything about a live album or visuals.
What is the Renaissance live album tracklist?
Fans will already know that the setlist for Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé differs from the concert setlist. To shorten the film and make space for more documentary footage, Beyoncé has cut: '1+1', 'I'm Goin' Down', 'I Care', 'Rather Die Young' and 'Love On Top'. Her Tina Turner 'River Deep, Mountain High' cover has also been replaced with a shortened rendition.
If the tracklist follows the film setlist, it will be as follows:
- Dangerously in Love 2
- Flaws and All
- I’m That Girl
- Alien Superstar
- Lift Off
- Cuff It / The Wetter Remix
- Break My Soul / The Queens Remix
- Run the World (Girls)
- My Power
- Black Parade
- Savage (feat. Megan Thee Stallion)
- Church Girl
- Get Me Bodied
- Before I Let Go
- Crazy in Love
- River Deep, Mountain High
- Love Hangover (Diana Ross Intermission)
- Plastic Off the Sofa
- Virgo’s Groove / Naughty Girl
- Kitty Kat
- All Up in Your Mind
- Drunk in Love
- America Has a Problem (feat. Kendrick Lamar)
- Pure/Honey / Blow
- Summer Renaissance
- My House
However, it's possible that the cut songs will still be on the live album. We need that 'I'm Goin' Down' version on streaming!
Fans have already come up with concepts for a Renaissance film and live album release but they are all fake as it stands.
