Proletarians of the world, unite after Beyoncé!
The billionaire singer’s new song, Break My Soul, urges workers to “release your work” and “free your work” as she wins 9-5.
She sings: “I just quit my job”, followed by: “Damn, they work so hard for me / Nine o’clock, five o’clock / And they strain my nerves / That is the reason why I can’t sleep at night.”
Some listeners called Beyoncé’s idea of singing about working 9-5 “regrettable” while others praised her “solidarity” with real workers – and celebrate her released an “anti-capitalist bop dance” for the “exhausted millennials”.

Break My Soul saw the singer give a rallying call, with guest vocalist Big Freedia rapping: “Release your anger, clear your mind / Clear your work, free your time / Free up Release your work, release stress”.
Many fans have joked on social media that the track – the first track from Beyoncé’s upcoming album Renaissance – was released in support of the first day of yesterday’s RMT rail strike action.
But others pointed out that within the first few hours of its release, the song was available exclusively on the Tidal streaming service owned by Jay Z and Beyoncé.
We are all equal – but some are more equal than others.
