Beyoncé announced a new album and dropped two singles on Sunday moments after she hinted that new music was coming during a Super Bowl ad for Verizon.


“Act II” will be released on March 29, Beyoncé announced in a teaser video about the album posted to her Instagram account.


She released two new singles, “Texas Holdem” and “16 Carriages,” on Tidal. She is expected to drop the singles on other streaming services after the Super Bowl.


Her fans — known collectively as the Bey Hive — have been waiting for a follow-up to her Grammy-winning 2022 album, “Renaissance.” “Renaissance” was promoted as “Act I” of a three-part project.
