Superstar Beyonce released a new single this week, and many fans say the lyrics are inspiring them to quit their jobs.

The 40-year-old artist dropped Break My Soul on Monday evening, which is the first single from her brand new studio album Renaissance, and the dance house track has reportedly gone down a storm with fans.

However, the song’s lyrics may actually be encouraging fans to wave goodbye to employment.

The track features the line: “Now, I just fell in love, and I just quit my job, I’m gonna find new drive, damn, they work me so damn hard.”

Many hardworking fans instantly jumped on these lyrics believing that Beyonce is now an advocate of the “Great Resignation.”

One tweeter went so far as to accuse the hitmaker of being directly responsible for mass resignation: “BREAKING: Beyoncé’s ‘Break My Soul’ identified as source of The Great Resignation.”

Another fan joked that they couldn’t quit their job after spending $50. They wrote: “Not Beyoncé telling me to quit my job.. Not after making me pay $50 for that mystery box.”

The Great Resignation refers to the large number of Americans who’ve jacked in their job over the last 12 months. This has led to a scenario where there are now more job openings than job seekers. According to CNN, this is due to many factors but primarily comes down to people changing priorities during the pandemic.
