Beyoncé posts joyful first TikTok featuring fans dancing to her new song 'Break My Soul'
Beyoncé has posted her first TikTok, and it's a sweet tribute to her Beyhive.
The music icon released the video on the app Thursday: A compilation of fans (and Cardi B!) dancing and singing along to her latest single, "Break My Soul." Queen Bey also tagged the featured TikTok creators in the comments.
"Seeing y'all release the wiggle made me so happy," she captioned the video. "Thank you so much for all the love for BREAK MY SOUL! - Love B."
Beyoncé's entire music catalog is also now available on the app for creators to include in their videos.
Though her TikTok account has existed for several months, this is the first time she has posted a video. As of Thursday, @beyonce boasts 3.3 million followers.
"THE QUEEN HAS ARRIVED," the official @tiktok account commented.
"Beyoncé has tik tok and she gives credit to the creators...King energy," user @brezils wrote.
"Imagine waking up and (realizing you're) featured on the official Beyoncé page," @the92explorer added.
Beyoncé's TikTok debut comes ahead of the release of "Renaissance," her seventh studio album which is due July 29 and promises to be an escape from "a scary time for the world."
"Break My Soul," the album's first single, debuted June 20 at the end of the Juneteenth holiday weekend. The song is a glistening dance track that samples Big Freedia's "Explode" and nods to Robin S.'s 1993 hit, "Show Me Love."
"You won't break my soul," Beyoncé repeats throughout the song, while also calling for a reinvention ("And I just quit my job/I'm gonna find a new drive") and semi-rapping with attitude, "the queens in the front and the doms in the back/ain't takin' no flicks but the whole clique snapped."
The megastar joining the app also comes as the music industry is increasingly pushing for artists to join TikTok thanks to its ability to make musicians and their songs go viral.
In late May, Halsey posted on TikTok saying that their label was refusing to release their song "So Good" unless the singer created a viral moment for it, something Halsey considered the height of "fake."
