Joe Budden Seemingly Suggests Beyoncé’s Fans Didn’t Like Her Latest Album ‘Renaissance’

Joe Budden seemingly claims Beyoncé’s fans didn’t care for her most recent album “Renaissance.”

On a recent episode of his show “The Joe Budden Podcast,” the hip-hop commentator cracked a few jokes about Drake fans having to “get low” or duck out of sight because he released a “mid” album, seemingly referring to Drake’s 2022 house music project “Honestly, Nevermind.”

During the conversation, Joe Budden sarcastically added that Beyoncé’s fans know what it’s like because they felt the same way about “Renaissance.”

In a circulating clip online, the rapper-turned-podcaster is heard taking aim at the iconic singer’s latest project. Joe Budden, 42, said,

“Do you know how tough it was for us Drake fans to go get low for a few months. If you don’t, you can just ask the Beyoncé fans right now. Maybe y’all don’t see when the fans collectively go get low, but I do. One of the best in the world, we can’t pop our sh*t, ’cause y’all tellin’ us it’s mid at every turn. Every week, n*ggas asking, ‘Oh, you heard some of that sh*t outside? ‘Cause I haven’t!’ That sh*t was like a stab in the heart.”

After receiving backlash, Budden insisted he liked the album and took the time to clarify via an IG comment section, according to reports. He wrote,

“I loved B’s album, if y’all comprehension is off just say that.” 

Despite what Budden had to say, it seems most enjoyed “Renaissance.” The project even landed Beyoncé 4 Grammy Awards this year!

“Renaissance” is reportedly Beyoncé’s first solo album since 2016’s “Lemonade.” The seventh studio album was released on July 29, 2022, by Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. The album has even prompted a highly-anticipated worldwide tour.

As previously reported, on Wednesday (February 1), the 41-year-old superstar took to Instagram to officially confirm her 2023 world tour on behalf of her album “Renaissance.”

The tour is scheduled to stop in stadiums across the world through the spring, summer, and fall seasons. It will begin in Europe this May before arriving in North America on July 8. “Renaissance” will take the stage on consecutive nights at Toronto’s Rogers Centre from July 8th – July 9th.
