After hearing Beyoncé’s most recent track, “Break My Soul,” Michelle Obama praised the singer highly on social media. Renaissance, the famous singer’s highly-awaited seventh studio album, will be set to release later this summer, and the track is its lead single.
“Queen @Beyonce, you’ve done it again!” the ex-first lady began her Instagram post. “‘Break My Soul’ is the song we all need right now, and I can’t help but dance and sing along while listening to it. Can’t wait for the album!”
Obama and Beyoncé have a long history of friendship. In appreciation of Obama’s inclusion on Time magazine’s yearly list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2019, the singer even wrote a moving essay in her honor. In addition, Beyoncé gave performances at the 2013 and 2009 inaugural balls.
“When I first met her, I was embraced by a warm, regal, confident woman who possessed a reassuring calm, on the eve of President Obama’s historic first Inauguration,” Beyoncé penned in an essay for Time magazine. “The way she looked, walked and spoke, in that warm but authoritative tone, we saw our mothers and sisters. She was strong and ambitious and spoke her mind without sacrificing honesty or empathy. That takes a lot of courage and discipline.”
