Beyonce has just released a brand new song called Be Alive, and we are freaking out.
On Friday. the Single Ladies chart-topper dropped the new single on YouTube, without any warning and with the comments disabled.
And, in true Beyonce style, she’s not said a single thing about the new release, and has just pushed it out into the world without comment. Classic Bey move.
Fans will revel in the fact the queen is back with the track from Will Smith’s new film King Richard, with the stripped-back piano intro, powerful verses, and, of course, that iconic voice and harmonies, making this track an unmistakable Beyonce anthem.
An upbeat number with true Beyonce power and panache, it’s fair to assume this may chart well next week.
Be Alive focuses on the importance of family and being together, opening with the words: ‘It feels so good to be alive/ Got all my family by my side.’
Queen Bey has not released an original album since her record-breaking Lemonade in 2016, other than a collaborative record with husband Jay-Z in 2018.
And, to say Beyonce’s fans are in a frenzy after the surprise new track is an understatement.
‘Be Alive is such a beautiful song Beyoncé never disappoints,’ one fan gushed on Twitter.
‘Be Alive proves once again why Beyoncé is & will always be my favourite out of every other Artist. She’s just DIFFERENT,’ one person wrote, adding ‘She’s insane.’
‘BEYONCÉ IS GIVING US VOCALS ONCE AGAIN’, another fan wrote.
‘The harmonies,the lyrics ,the production ,THE TRANSITION ???? so beautiful, i missed her so much’.
‘the harmonies in be alive… BEYONCÉ IS NOT PLAYING WITH YOU BITCHES’, another agreed.
One fan wrote simply: ‘yes i do believe beyoncé is the best vocalist alive rn i don’t care like i’m not asking you i’m telling you’.
Be Alive was written for the upcoming Serena and Venus William biopic, King Richard, starring Smith as the tennis stars’ father.
A clip of Beyonce’s newest offering was previewed in the film’s trailer last month.
King Richard places Venus and Serena’s father Richard directly in the spotlight, going back to the earliest days when the sisters first pick up a racket, and the lengths Richard goes to bring the best out in his daughters.
The film has been receiving positive reviews from critics, with Metro.co.uk granting it four out of five stars and praising it for going ‘above and beyond’ traditional sports movies and biopics.
King Richard is released in cinemas on November 19.
