Beyoncé Album Creates Huge Google Search Spike for ‘Renaissance’
Beyoncé’s next album will almost certainly top the charts, but it has already caused a stir on the internet, and it is even enlightening people — in droves — about important issues in the world today.
FOX3 has been informed by Google employees… in the last day, there has been a fifty percent rise in the number of people searching for the phrase “renaissance,” which is the name of Bey’s album. In addition to this, the number of searches that included the word “renaissance definition” increased by more than 100%.
It would appear that Beyoncé fans are brushing up on their history knowledge while satisfying their cravings for her songs.
Since the announcement on Thursday that the singer’s seventh album was going to be released, “The Beyoncé effect” has been in full force, and Google can plainly see it in its data.
Although she collaborated on music with her husband Jay-Z in 2018 and worked on Disney’s “The Lion King” in 2019, this will be Beyoncé’s first solo album of original songs since she released her self-titled debut album in 2016.
Google should have been able to anticipate this increase in traffic — The Beyhive observed that Beyonce had deleted her social media profile images the previous week, which is when she began trending online. Nothing escapes the attention of her loyal devotees.
The album is scheduled to be released at the end of July, and in the meantime… there is a chance that Renaissance fairs will benefit unintentionally from all of the attention surrounding Beyoncé.
