Hit-Boy Featured On Beyoncé’s Highly-Anticipated Album “Renaissance”
3X GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING PRODUCER HIT-BOY FEATURED ON BEYONCÉ’S HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED ALBUM “RENAISSANCE”
Beyoncé’s 8th studio album “Renaissance,” has arrived. This is Beyoncé’s first album in six years and first since her world-conquering Lemonade. The 16-song project cites production by Hit-Boy for her song “THIQUE.” Hit-Boy, who’s no stranger to collaborating with artists, is responsible for producing a string of anthemic records for Beyoncé (“Sorry,” “Flawless,” and “Bow Down / I Been On” to name a few).
“Renaissance” references disco, funk, house, techno, bounce and more, the generally upbeat songs draw from a wide array of writers and producers. Beyoncé’s collaborators outside of Hit-Boy include The-Dream, Pharrell Williams, and Drake.
Ahead of his forthcoming EP due for release this fall, the iconic beatmaker is leaning heavily into embracing all aspects of his artistry. Since announcing his partnership with UnitedMasters to launch their Beat Exchange marketplace, Hit-Boy has shown no signs of slowing down, landing an instrumental role in Madden 23’s global campaign for their official launch.
Hit’s prolific run in music has cemented his position as one of the industry’s most sought-after beatmakers. Fueled by his boundless ambition to leave a legacy of dominance, the California-bred sound architect has captured the attention of Hip-Hop enthusiasts around the world for his musical contributions. Most recently, he’s ascended from behind the boards to flex his knack for storytelling with tracks “Corsa” feat. Dom Kennedy (watch HERE) and “Scholar” feat. 24hrs and Devin Morrison (watch HERE).
Fan favorites like “better off” by Ariana Grande and “Woo” by Rihanna are unmissable snapshots of Hit-Boy’s versatility as a producer. Alongside his accomplishments in the hip-hop space, Hit has made inroads within pop, collaborating with artists such as Beyoncé (“THIQUE”), Selena Gomez (“Good For You”), The Pussycat Dolls (“Love the Way You Love Me”) and more.
As one of the music industry’s most sought out hip-hop producers, the California-bred Hit-Boy has more than earned his moniker. Born Chauncey Hollis, the 34-year-old, 3x GRAMMY Award-winning multi-hyphenate artist from Pasadena and the neighboring Inland Empire, boasts an impressive roster of credits, from wielding pop smashes for Beyoncé, Rihanna and Ariana Grande to producing hit records for Jay-Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and more over his thirteen plus years in the industry. As a rapper and songwriter in his own right, Hit-Boy has recorded and released seven mixtapes and three collaborative albums. Recently earning a GRAMMY for Nas’ King’s Disease (Hit served as an executive producer on the ‘Best Rap Album’), the super producer has earned his first-time GRAMMY nomination for the ‘Producer of the Year’ category. He has racked up several additional accolades, including ‘Producer of the Year’ at the 2021 and 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards, ‘Producer of the Year’ at the XXL Awards, ‘Outstanding Producer of the Year’ at the 2021 NAACP Image Awards and Complex’s ‘Best Hip-Hop Producer Alive’ of 2020. He recently served as executive producer for Nas’ King’s Disease (GRAMMY winner) and King’s Disease II, Big Sean’s Detroit 2 (debuted No. 1 on the Billboard 200) and Benny the Butcher’s Burden of Proof.
