Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé finally hit the theaters this week, and Queen B celebrated its release in style! She marked the occasion by sharing a brand-new single “My House”, which appeared in the post-credits of her highly-anticipated concert film.

“My House” opens with a spoken-word portion that hears Beyoncé saying, “I will always love you, but I will never expect you to love me when you don’t love yourself. Let’s heal the world, one beautiful action at a time, this is real love!”

“My House” is a rap-infused tune driven by trap beats and horns, and it sees Queen B paying homage to her Houston roots. She co-wrote and produced it alongside The-Dream, who’s also credited as co-writers of her smash hits “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” and “Break My Soul”.

“My House” is Beyoncé’s first solo single since the release of her latest studio album Renaissance, which inspired the concert film of the same name. According to its official synopsis, it chronicles “Beyoncé’s intention, hard work, involvement in every aspect of the production, her creative mind and purpose to create her legacy, and master her craft.”

Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé hit the theatres on December 1, and it’s projected to gross $20–25 million during its opening weekend.
