Next month, Beyoncé will support a brand-new Renaissance song on rhythmic radio. On Tuesday, October 4, the 28-time Grammy winner will make a format change with “Church Girl,” a hit song that she co-produced with The-Dream and NO I.D.
Stuart White contributed additional production to the good-girl-gone-bad song, which utilizes a clip from the reverent 1981 song “Center Thy Will” by the illustrious Clark Sisters. During the week of August 13, it made its Billboard Hot 100 debut at No. 22.
The track that came after Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul,” which topped charts in August, is called “Church Girl.” The-Dream and Tricky Stewart co-wrote and co-produced the house song, which also topped the R&B charts.
Prior to it, “Break My Soul,” her eighth number-one single, spent two weeks at the top of the Hot 100. With more than 500,000 equivalent copies sold, the RIAA also awarded the song a gold certification.
Beyoncé’s seventh studio album Renaissance’s lead song, “Break My Soul,” was released. She posted a few remixes of the song, including “The Queens Remix,” which included Madonna, a world icon.
With 332,000 equivalent copies sold in its first week of sales, Renaissance opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Beyoncé ranked second overall and had the biggest one-week sales of any woman this year thanks to the opening amount. She stands out from the crowd as the only woman with seven studio albums that have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 thanks to her accomplishment.
“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” said Beyoncé. “It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.”
