Beyoncé achieves her first solo Hot 100 No. 1 with "Break My Soul."
Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul” is Her First Solo No. 1 Hit in 14 Years.
The lead single from the album, "Break My Soul," became the artist's first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 in 14 years, according to news that broke this week. In 2008, Queen Bey's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" became her last No. 1 solo song.
She has since released important albums including Lemonade, which had numerous well-known hits and guest appearances.
But between now and 2008, Beyoncé's name did appear on popular songs. In 2017, her duet with Ed Sheeran from the UK peaked at number one. She also remixed Megan Thee Stallion's song "Savage."
Beyoncé became the first female artist to ever have seven albums launched at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart when her seventh album, Renaissance, did so.
With every album release, Beyoncé continues to accomplish significant goals. When every song from her sixth album, Lemonade, reached the Billboard Hot 100, Beyoncé became the first female artist to have 12 or more singles on the chart at once. Beyoncé has also had seven singles reach No. 1 on the Billboard 100 throughout her career.
Four remixed versions of the song, including one with Madonna and another with Honey Dijon and Will, were included on a surprise EP when the song "Break My Soul" debuted in June. The Renaissance songs "Cozy" and "Alien Superstar" were produced by i.am and Dijon. Producer Nita Aviance, a multi-instrumentalist, and Chicago house music veteran Terry Hunter have also contributed to the EP.
The singer thanked her husband Jay Z and their kids in an online letter, and she also dedicated the album to her uncle Jonny.
He introduced me to a lot of the music and culture that served as the inspiration for this record, according to Beyoncé, who also happens to be his godmother. "Thank you to all the culture's pioneers and fallen angels whose efforts have languished unacknowledged for far too long. This is an occasion to celebrate you.
