Beyoncé fans, it’s party time! The superstar’s seventh album was revealed to the world a few days ago, accompanied by its myriad references to the great times of disco and house (and its share of super-scorching lyrics). And you can be sure of one thing: it will punctuate dance floors around the world during this hot summer.
But the most attentive ears have already spotted other references, lost between the samples of Robin S. and rowdy electro beats. The last track of the album, Summer Renaissance, presents itself as a hymn to the glory of fashion: she quotes some of her favorite brands like Versace, Prada, Bottega Veneta and Balenciaga. “So much elegance and debauchery, it’s all haute couture that I’m showing off”, she sings with delicious arrogance on the intoxicating synths of the classic disco of Donna Summer I Feel Love.
Longtime fan of the Telfar brand

But by writing in black and white her love for the brand, she proclaims herself as the most devoted fan of Telfar. As she says herself at the end of the song: “I’m in my bag” [Je suis prête à en découdre].
