In less than two months, Beyoncé and her crew will head out to amaze audiences with her long-awaited RENAISSANCE tour. While jokes about the mother of three practicing vocal runs while sprinting on the treadmill in heels, and exclusively consuming almonds and water to keep her figure right have been circulating on social media, her album continues to speak for itself by breaking more records. Most recently, one of her newer songs beat out an old fan favourite as her longest-charting solo song of all time.

Twitter account @PopBase shared the news on Monday (March 27) evening, that Beyoncé's 2008 hit, "Halo," has officially been surpassed by "CUFF IT" on the Billboard Hot 100 in terms of total weeks charting. The former song arrived on the Houston native's I Am... Sasha Fierce album, and has an undeniably ethereal, feel-good vibe to it. The latter, of course, is on the RENAISSANCE project and has since seen incredible remixes from Blxst and Bey herself.

"CUFF IT" Continues to Break Records

While "CUFF IT" is undeniably a fan favourite, other popular titles from the 16-song tracklist include "BREAK MY SOUL," "ALIEN SUPERSTAR," and "ENERGY" featuring Beam. Shortly after unveiling RENAISSANCE to the world last summer, Beyoncé hinted that the project was part of a trilogy, though it remains unclear when the next two albums will be arriving. As for her tour, it's due to begin on May 10 in Stockholm, before the vocalist takes over stages in various other cities around the world. Ahead of the big premiere, fans got a preview of what's to come when Beyoncé made a grand return in Dubai earlier this year.

At the time, she was helping to celebrate the opening of a new hotel in the luxurious country, and celebrity friends like Kendall Jenner, Chloe and Halle Bailey, and her husband, Jay-Z were all in attendance. A strict no-phones policy was enforced ahead of the performance, though some attendees still managed to capture clips and leak them online. While what we saw of that show was undeniably impressive, it's likely that the upcoming RENAISSANCE shows will only be better thanks to the Virgo superstar's incredible work ethic. Revisit "CUFF IT" below, and check back later for more music news updates.
