Beyoncé surprised and delighted her fans on Monday night when she released her latest single Break My Soul hours before it was originally expected.

The 40-year-old hitmaker dropped the song — which is saturated with danceable beats — not long after 10 p.m. ET, despite promising that it wouldn’t be out until midnight.

Break My Soul is the first advance single from the former Destiny’s Child singer’s upcoming seventh studio album, titled Renaissance.

She’s back! Beyoncé, 40, surprised and delighted her fans on Monday night when she released her latest single Break My Soul hours before it was originally expected

The song, which seems to be the sixth track on Renaissance, appears to have bypassed several streaming platforms, including Spotify, in favor of a Tidal release, which is fitting, as her husband Jay-Z is a co-owner of the company.

The hard-charging single reunites Beyoncé with the in-demand producers Tricky Stewart and The-Dream, who previously worked on her classic tune Single Ladies.

Release your anger, release your mind / Release your job, release the time / Release your trade, release the stress / Release the love, forget the rest,’ she sings on the track, which features interjections from Bounce rapper Big Freedia.

Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z doesn’t appear to be featured on Break My Soul, but he’s listed under its multiple songwriters (as S. Carter).

Beyonce featuring Big Freedia – ‘Break My Soul’ lyrics

[Intro: Big Freedia & Beyoncé]

I’m ’bout to explode, take off this load

Bend it, bust it open, won’t ya make it go

Yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka

Yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka (Release ya wiggle)

Yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka

Yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka (Release ya wiggle)

Ah, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

[Chorus: Beyoncé]

You won’t break my soul

You won’t break my soul

You won’t break my soul

You won’t break my soul

I’m tellin’ everybody

Everybody

Everybody

Everybody

[Verse 1: Beyoncé]

Now, I just fell in love, and I just quit my job

I’m gonna find new drive, damn, they work me so damn hard

Work by nine, then off past five

And they work my nerves, that’s why I cannot sleep at night

[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]

Motivation

I’m lookin’ for a new foundation, yeah

And I’m on that new vibration

I’m buildin’ my own foundation, yeah

Hold up, oh, baby, baby

[Chorus: Beyoncé]

You won’t break my soul (Na, na)

You won’t break my soul (No-no, na, na)

You won’t break my soul (No-no, na, na)

You won’t break my soul (Na, na)

I’m tellin’ everybody (Na, na)

Everybody

Everybody

Everybody

[Post-Chorus: Big Freedia]

Release ya anger, release ya mind

Release ya job, release the time

Release ya trade, release the stress

Release the love, forget the rest

[Verse 2: Beyoncé]

I’ma let down my hair ’cause I lost my mind

Bey is back and I’m sleepin’ real good at night

The queens in the front and the Doms in the back

Ain’t takin’ no flicks but the whole clique snapped

There’s a whole lot of people in the house

Tryin’ to smoke with the yak in your mouth

(Good at night) And we back outside

You said you outside, but you ain’t that outside

Worldwide hoodie with the mask outside

In case you forgot how we act outside

[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]

Got motivation (Motivation)

I done found me a new foundation, yeah (New foundation)

And I’m takin’ my new salvation (Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, new salvation)

And I’ma build my own foundation, yeah (Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, baby, baby

[Chorus: Beyoncé]

You won’t break my soul (You won’t)

You won’t break my soul (Break my soul)

You won’t break my soul (You won’t)

You won’t break my soul (Break my soul)

And I’m tellin’ everybody (Everybody)

Everybody (Everybody)

Everybody (Everybody)

Everybody, yeah

[Verse 3: Beyoncé]

If you don’t seek it, you won’t see it

That, we all know (Can’t break my soul)

If you don’t think it, you won’t be it

That love ain’t yours (Can’t break my soul)

Tryin’ to fake it, never makes it

That, we all know (Can’t break my soul)

You can have the stress and not take less

I’ll justify love

We go round in circles, round in circles

Searchin’ for love (Round in circles)

We go up and down, lost and found

Searchin’ for love

Looking for something that lives inside me

Looking for something that lives inside me

[Chorus: Beyoncé]

You won’t break my soul

You won’t break my soul

You won’t break my soul

You won’t break my soul

I’m tellin’ everybody

Tellin’ everybody

Everybody

Everybody

You won’t break my soul

You won’t break my soul, no, no

You won’t break my soul

You won’t break my soul

And I’m tellin’ everybody (Oh yeah, yeah)

Everybody (Oh yeah, yeah)

Everybody

Everybody (Oh yeah, yeah)

[Bridge: Beyoncé]

I’m takin’ my new salvation

And I’ma build my own foundation, yeah

Got motivation (Motivation)

I done found me a new foundation, yeah (New foundation)

I’m takin’ my new salvation (New salvation)

And I’ma build my own foundation, yeah (Own foundation)

[Outro: Big Freedia]

I’m ’bout to explode, take off this load

Bend it, bust it open, won’t ya make it go

Yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka

Yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka (Release ya wiggle)

Yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka

Yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka, yaka (Release ya wiggle)

Release ya wiggle

Release ya wiggle

Release ya anger, release ya mind

Release ya job, release the time

Release ya trade, release the stress

Release the love, forget the rest
