Beyoncé has officially posted on TikTok — and licensed her entire catalog for use on the short-form video platform.

Superstar Beyoncé has joined TikTok, and her entire catalog is now available for users of the short-form video app to utilize as backing tracks for their creations. Among her classic hits like “Single Ladies” and “Halo,” the artist’s latest single, “Break My Soul,” is also available for use.

Beyoncé’s first TikTok is a compilation of user-generated content inspired by her music. The TikTok accompanies a caption thanking her fans on the platform for their support. “Seeing y’all release the wiggle made me so happy!” reads her caption. “Thank you so much for all the love for BREAK MY SOUL! — Love B.”

Queen B’s TikTok account has gathered more than 3.4 million followers since its July 14 morning debut, furthering her impressive social media presence. The artist has 268 million followers on Instagram, 56 million on Facebook, about 25 million subscribers on YouTube, and over 15 million Twitter followers.

“Break My Soul” is the first single from her upcoming seventh solo studio album, Renaissance, slated for release on July 29. The album will feature an eclectic mixture of dance and country-inspired tracks, with contributions from prolific songwriter Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote her 2008 hit, “Halo.” Tedder is known for his songwriting work with artists such as Adele, The Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, and his own group, OneRepublic.

Beyoncé is the only artist in history to have all her first six studio albums top the Billboard album charts. Renaissance is the first new solo music from the artist since 2016’s Lemonade. The new album includes “act i” as a subtitle, suggesting it will be part of a larger project. Beyonce says she’s been working on the album during the pandemic and even hinted at the album’s name in an interview in 2021.
