Beyoncé has released a new family portrait ahead of the release of her seventh studio album, Renaissance. The picture features the singer with her three children.
Pictures of Blue Ivy, 10, and the five-year-old twins Rumi and Sir have appeared on Beyonce’s website, where they can be seen sleeping in her bed next to the singer. It also comes with a letter from Beyoncé, in which she explains how she’s dedicating her upcoming album, in part, to her children.
Rumi, Sir, and Blue have given her “the space, creativity, and inspiration,” she stated in her thank-you note.
“And a particular thanks to my wonderful husband and muse, who held me down during those late nights in the studio,” she wrote in her thank-you note.
Here is a special message from Beyoncé. #RENAISSANCE
Dedicated to her children, her husband, her family, her Godmother Uncle Johnny, and to the LGBTQ+ community and all of the pioneers who originated the culture and the fallen angels whose contributions have gone unrecognized. pic.twitter.com/hm6Om9fi52

Beyoncé went on to thank her “godmother,” Uncle Jonny, as well as her Parkwood Entertainment team and her parents in the remainder of her statement.
“My uncle, Jonny, deserves a big thank you. As my godmother, he was instrumental in introducing me to a wide range of musical and cultural influences that helped shape the sound of this record “She wrote. “We owe a debt of gratitude to all of history’s pioneers and fallen heroes, whose achievements have gone unappreciated for far too long. It’s a special occasion for you, so enjoy it.”

She put a finish to the letter with a kiss on the cheek “To everyone who listens to my music, thank you for your support. I hope it encourages you to let go of the jiggle. Ha! and a sense of self-confidence that comes from knowing who you are.”
Harper’s Bazaar’s September 2021 cover story had previously featured an interview with Beyoncé in which she hinted at the title of her upcoming album, Renaissance.
“We’ve been through a lot this year, and I think we’re all ready to let go, travel, fall in love, and have a good time again. I sense a renaissance taking shape, and I want to do everything in my power to help it flourish “she remarked at the moment. “For the past year and a half, I’ve been working in the studio on various projects.

A year of searching through thousands of sounds to locate the perfect kick or snare might sometimes take me. Up to 200 layered harmonies can be found in a single chorus. Even so, the level of love, passion, and healing that I experienced in the recording studio is unmatched by any other experience.
It still excites me as much as it did when I was nine years old, despite the passage of 31 years. Yes, it’s time for some music!”
