How Renaissance Impact the Culture

Beyonce effectively incorporated diverse elements of cultural renewal in her album. The album came before the movie and it was a 16-track piece that took us through a period of black oppression into a period of creating a haven, free from scrutiny and takes us into a period of black perfectionism.

Beyonce brought a new style into the black pop culture, by incorporating diverse elements of black music, dance, and culture that have now been accepted by all black communities worldwide. From the beginning of the Renaissance movie, listeners were exposed to all kinds of genres including pop, Afrobeat, Soul, Electronics, and house.

Beyonce was able to integrate all these genres perfectly, and many music producers continue to replicate Beyonce’s genius in their new projects.
