However, it dropped on Tidal, the streaming service co-owned by her husband Jay-Z a couple of hours earlier, and as a lyric video on YouTube.

You won’t break my soul,” the 40-year-old singer repeats in the chorus.

“Release your anger, release your mind / Release your job, release the time / Release your trade, release the stress / Release the love, forget the rest,” continues the new track, which features interjections from rapper Big Freedia.
