Fresh on the heels of her new film “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé” arriving in theaters, Beyoncé has dropped a new song, “My House,” to coincide with its release.

Viewers at screenings noted that the song appeared in the credits, and she released the distinctly Houston-adjacent “My House” on Thursday night, shortly after the pic released in theaters and right at store-turn on streaming services.


“Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé” is a part-documentary, part-concert film that revisits her record-shattering Renaissance World Tour that concluded in October. In the film, she weaves together performances from the trek with vignettes that invite viewers into her personal life, with appearances from her mother Tina Knowles, husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
