"Break My Soul" (written in all capital letters) is a 2022 song by American singer Beyoncé. The song was released June 20, 2022. It is the lead single from her seventh studio album, Renaissance (2022). The song samples the 1993 house song "Show Me Love" by Robin S, which was written by Allen George, G Syier Hawkins Brown, and Fred McFarlane, with background vocals from New Orleans bounce rapper Big Freedia and a sample of Freedia's song "Explode". "Break My Soul" was co-produced by Beyoncé, The-Dream, and Tricky Stewart.
Julianne Escobedo Shepherd of Pitchfork said the song shows "Beyoncé as an SSRI [antidepressant]" and that Beyoncé is "acknowledging the predicament in which many of her non-zillionaire listeners find themselves."
