Beyoncé announces release of the 2nd part of her 'Renaissance' album in Super Bowl ad

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel.

Taylor Swift's favorite team won the Super Bowl, but Beyonce stole the show. Queen B announced the long-anticipated release of the second part of her "Renaissance" album in a Verizon Super Bowl ad. The commercial includes scenes of Beyonce breaking a block of ice at a lemonade stand and later running for office. Then two songs from the country-themed album were released online. The full album is out next month.
