Beyoncé and Jay-Z will reportedly be collabing for the last act in the Renaissance trilogy. New York Times‘ pop culture reporter Kyle Buchanan tweeted that Jay-Z will join Beyoncé to fulfill the Renaissance three-part series. “Before Twitter goes down, instead of making you follow me somewhere else, I’ll just tell you what I’ve heard about the other 2 acts of Beyonce’s 3-part ‘Renaissance’ project,” the reporter wrote. “(2nd act is an acoustic album, 3rd act is a collaboration with Jay-Z).”

If this third act comes to fruition, it would be the second time Beyoncé and Jay-Z have created a joint album together. Their album Everything Is Love debuted in 2018.
“This three act project was recorded over three years during the pandemic. A time to be still, but also a time I found to be the most creative,” Beyoncé wrote at the time. “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. 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.”
Beyoncé seemingly confirmed that she will be going on tour in 2023 after tickets for a Renaissance World Tour were up for auction during the Wearable Art Gala last month. The package read: “Valued at a total of $20,000, United [Airlines] x WACO offers you a chance to see Beyoncé on her ‘Renaissance’ tour starting in the summer of 2023 at any of United’s national and international destinations around the world. This prize is complete with 2 first-class international United Airlines Polaris tickets to select cities with 3-night hotel accommodations at a Marriott property. And, to one of the most sought-after musical performances of all time, 2 concert tickets to Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ 2023 tour with a guided backstage tour with Miss Tina [Beyoncé’s mother]!”
The winning bidder was said to have paid between $45,000 and $50,000 for the prize, Variety reports.
