Just hours after the Grammy-winner premiered the film in London’s Leicester Square on Thursday night (November 30), she dropped the track, which plays during the end credits on streaming services.
The lyrics include: “I want pink diamonds on my belly chain and my nipple rings (Grrah!)/ I’m grabbin’ grain, sippin’ sideways on this candy paint,” a nod to Paul Wall‘s classic Texas rap anthem “Sittin’ Sidewayz.”
Reactions to the song have been largely positive, with one post on X, formerly Twitter, saying: “Renaissance in IMAX… when My House started banging during the credits I thought I was in the club.”
Another said: “The fact that Beyonce is using her ACTUAL accent on this first half of this song… That’s that COUNTRY baby, that’s that Texas!”
One fan also joked: “Beyoncé made ‘My House’ for everyone who hosts parties at their house and want a song that tells people to get the f*ck away at 3am.”
The London premiere of Renaissance saw a number of A-list stars walk the red carpet, including Taylor Swift, will.i.am, Blake Lively and Beyoncé’s former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams.
The film, which chronicles the development and delivery of Beyoncé’s 2023 Renaissance World Tour in support of the album of the same name, is released worldwide in cinemas on Friday (December 1).
Written and directed by Beyoncé herself, the film features live concert footage, intimate behind-the-scenes moments and also clips from inside the studio as she was recording the album.
The nearly three-hour film is being released through a deal between Beyoncé and AMC Theatres, cutting out the major Hollywood studios in a similar manner to Taylor Swift’s concert film earlier this year.
The deal will see Beyoncé receive around 50 percent of the total box-office, which is projected to gross between $30 million and $40 million.
