Beyoncé is finally back with a brand new album. Her 7th solo LP "Renaissance" was released in stores and on streaming platforms on July 29 just weeks after announcing the project (which is going to be three records in total) and its lead single "Break My Soul," a house-music infused bop that features a sample from the '90s gay anthem "Show Me Love" by Robin S.

She also dedicated the album to her family as well as her late uncle, who died of complications due to HIV. In the album's booklet, she writes that he was her "godmother and the first person to expose me to a lot of the music and culture that serve as inspiration for this album. Thank you to all the pioneers who originate culture, to all the fallen angels whose contributions have gone unrecognized for far too long. This is a celebration for you."

The album has been out for a number of hours now and Gay Twitter is already sharing thoughts on the 16-track album. Find the best reactions and responses to Beyoncé's "Renaissance" below.
