Written by Sweenie Saint-Vil on November 22, 2022
Beyoncé‘s Renaissance previously topped the Billboard 200, as well as Billboard‘s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top R&B Albums, but now it’s making its mark on the dance/electronic charts.
Billboard reports the album is now dominating the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart after the publication noticed the reception from the dance community and reevaluated its genre categorization.
While the album is now catching steam in the dance/electronic categories, Renaissance‘s singles have long been charting in the genre. Following the project’s release, “Break My Soul,” “Pure/Honey,” “Summer Renaissance” and “Thique” landed on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Most recently, the viral TikTok hit “Cuff It” debuted on the Hot Dance/Mix Show Airplay.
Renaissance dropped in July as Bey’s seventh studio effort. It’s been nominated in both R&B and dance categories for the Grammy Awards next year. The album, which is part of a three-act project, was recently named among TIME‘s Best Albums of 2022; it’s #3 on the list.
