Beyoncé attempted to break the Verizon network in a Super Bowl LVIII commercial and teased new music.
In the spot, the “Break My Soul” singer tried different ways to overload Verizon’s wireless network by opening a Lemonade stand, dropping new music playing the saxophone, becoming a gamer, introducing an A.I. version of herself and channeling Barbie turning into “BarBey.”
Beyoncé also tries to break the internet by announcing her candidacy as “Beyoncé of the United States,” and going into space to perform.
However, none of Beyoncé’s attempts broke Verizon with the singer saying, “You ain’t gonna break me.”
At the end, Beyoncé teased, “OK, they ready. Drop the new music.”
Over on Beyoncé’s socials, the singer shared a video teasing new country music, including the first single, “Texas! Hold ’em.” The album is set to drop March 29.

News of Beyoncé’s music comes a week after her husband Jay-Z blasted the Grammys for not awarding her Album of the Year despite being the most awarded artist in history.
“I’m just saying we just want you to get it right,” Jay-Z said about the Grammys. “We love y’all. We want y’all to get it right — at least get it close to right.”
Jay-Z acknowledged that music is subjective and added, “I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than everyone and never won Album of the Year. So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that. The most Grammys… Never won Album of the Year. That doesn’t work.”

Azealia Banks has spoken out against Beyoncé’s new country-tinged musical direction, saying she is “setting herself up to be ridiculed”.Beyoncé announced details of her new album ‘Renaissance Act II’ during a Verizon advertisement during Sunday’s Super Bowl. The record is the second instalment of what is expected to be a ‘Renaissance’ trilogy, and it will come out on March 29.As soon as the advert concluded, Beyoncé released the project’s first two singles ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ and ‘16 Carriages’, and the banjo twang of the former and the slow, forlorn pacing of the latter both seem to confirm ongoing fan speculation that Beyoncé was planning on releasing a country-flavoured album.Now, Banks has spoken up, warning her fellow performer that she was making a mistake. In an Instagram Stories post (via Music News), she said about the new material: “Nothing country about it.
Justin Bieber turned down the offer to join Usher during his Super Bowl performance.The set took place over the weekend (February 11), when the R&B star became the latest artist to perform at the iconic Halftime show during the 58th instalment of the Super Bowl.

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic When Beyoncé released “Daddy Lessons” as a track on the “Lemonade” album in 2016, the country flavor she baked into the tune felt too right to be limited to a mere one-off. But what were the odds she would ever return to that kind of genre influence for an entire album? Probably less than they would have been if anyone had ever tried calculating the odds of the Rolling Stones following a singular country song like “Faraway Eyes” with a whole project leaning in that direction… which, obviously, they never did.

A surprise album drop.The superstar teamed up with Verizon for a Super Bowl commercial costarring actor Tony Hale that was all about “breaking the internet,” going through various viral moments, both real (the Lemonade release) and imagined (running for Beyoncé of the United States…which, yes).But it was the very end of the commercial that seemed to truly break the internet: as the Verizon logo appears, Bey's voice can be heard saying “Okay, they ready.
