In only a few short hours, the Lemonade songstress garnered over 3 million followers — leaving fans raving over her joining in the comments section.

Joining TikTok is only the latest in what’s been a series of events for Beyoncé’s return. On June 16, Columbia Records announced on social media that Renaissance, her upcoming album, is officially scheduled to drop on July 29.

Renaissance will mark the star’s first solo album in six years. She previously released 2003’s Dangerously in Love, 2006’s B’Day, 2008’s I Am… Sasha Fierce, 2011’s 4, 2013’s Beyoncé and 2016’s Lemonade.

Meanwhile, on June 20, the singer dropped the first single off the album titled “Break My Soul.” Last week, the song climbed from No. 15 to No. 7 on the Hot 100 Billboard charts, three weeks after its debut. This made her the first woman to attain at least 20 top 10 records as a solo artist, and the third entertainer of all time to have at least 10 top 10 hits as a member of a group, Billboard reports.

“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving,” she wrote on Instagram. “My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking.”

She continued, “A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”
