Beyonce makes an epic comeback with an incredible Vogue shoot and new music on the way

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is back in full force after a six-year absence from music, with the superstar icon announcing her brand new solo album Renaissance.

The highly anticipated record will be the singer’s first since she released Lemonade in 2016, and to mark the pivotal moment, she also posed for an absolutely stunning Vogue cover.

The former Destiny’s Child member also appears to be marking her next step into the industry, as she poses on horses and motorcycles in one of vogue the magazine’s most ambitious fashion shoots ever.

Named Fashion Fantasia, Beyoncé, 40, who is married to rapper Jay Z, and who was recently spotted playing an NBA game with her family, showed off her fashion prowess as she prepares to take over the two industries once again.

In the blink of an eye, the singer went completely dystopian a la Matrix in a black leather biker jacket, lace-up velvet high-heeled boots and skin-tight black pants as she posed on a sleek motorcycle.

With her hair styled in small buns, Beyoncé donned black lipstick and matching nail polish as she brooded on camera.

With a red velvet curtain in the background, there was also blue smoke to complete the futuristic image.

In another snap, the Single Ladies hitmaker went head-to-toe gold in a daring jacket that was covered in sequins and featured a huge oversized collar at the back.

With her hair swept back and slicked back for the photo, Beyoncé also opted for choppy bangs, along with shimmery gold lipstick and eyeshadow to complete the style.

Resting on red sequined fabric, the beautiful musician also wore dramatic space-themed earrings with dangling gold planets.

Perhaps the most striking image is the cover of Vogue, which shows the musician dressed in a black velvet dress and gloves, she posed on a horse flooded with red light.

Along with a huge black feather headpiece, the mum-of-three also donned another pair of black platform boots as she put a hand above the horse’s side.

“Beyoncé is turning up the heat,” the cover reads, while inside the magazine, Vogue editor Edward Enningful shares his interview with the star.

Promising “thrilling abundance”, the publisher recalled: “[On set] it was a magical vibe and soon B was walking around, feeling comfortable and free to be herself.

“Her husband and children came to surprise her on set. It was a family day, if a bit surreal.”

He also observed that Beyoncé was having a “precious time in her life” and was focusing on her family above all else.

“Now, at 40, she feels so good as a mother, an artist and a woman,” noted Enningful, recalling how the star revealed that creating her new album was a “long process.”

Despite this, she was grateful that the international shutdowns gave her much more time than usual to reflect and “rethink” each decision, which is “just the way she likes it”.

Plus, the Vogue editor was invited over to her house for a normal Sunday family dinner, and Enningful emerged feeling like the iconic singer couldn’t be more normal.

Calling her family unit “my earth, my heart, my soil and my sanity,” Beyoncé has taken time off with her kids and family, but is ready to kick off her next decade with a new era.

She tagged this new chapter “act i” in the teaser on her social media.

Spotify and other music channels then shared the new Renaissance will be released on July 29.
