ASMA KHALID, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Asma Khalid. The weekend is almost here, and that means it's about time for Leila and I to hit the dance floor. Beyonce just graced us with her seventh studio album, "Renaissance." It pulls from '70s disco, '80s synth-pop, '90s house Afrobeats.
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "HEATED")
BEYONCE: (Singing) Never met a girl with a mind like this.
KHALID: This is only the first act. There will be two more sister records. On her website, Beyonce wrote, I hope it inspires you to release and wiggle and to feel as unique, strong and sexy as you are. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
