The world waits for her cultural cue, and now Queen Bey says it’s fine to quit your job. The ‘work sucks’ vibe in her new song Break My Soul will echo worldwide, experts say, with one in 5 workers likely to seek new jobs in the next year. And it’s a message that will resonate with women who are “especially prone to burn out after shouldering child care responsibilities in addition to work during the pandemic shutdowns.” Mrs Carter isn’t the first muso to tap into the zeitgeist during times of change in the labour market – her track has been compared to the Bee Gees’ Stayin’ Alive and Michael Jackson’s Workin’ Day and Night when it comes to expressing frustration with the work situation. The song, which debuted Monday, has landed with fans… It’s on her new album Renaissance: Act 1 – it’s due to be released at the end of July.
