Beyonce has revealed the credits for her forthcoming seventh full-length solo album “Renaissance,” and they’re every bit as star-studded and envelope-pushing as you’d expect, a mixture of household names like Drake, Jay-Z and Pharrell, veteran hitmakers like The-Dream, Raphael Saadiq, Hit Boy, Mike Dean and Nova Wav, and some unknowns who are having their first entries on Genius.com.

Based on the songwriting credits revealed in Apple Music — with a few typos — collaborators include:

Drake, on the song “Heated,”
Jay-Z, with credits on three songs,
Pharrell Williams, likely in collaboration with his Neptunes partner Chad Hugo (the name “Chad” appears at the end of the credits for song “Energy”),
Nigerian singer Tems,
Solange/ D’Angelo collaborator Raphael Saadiq,
R&B chanteuse Sabrina Claudio,
Longtime Beyonce collaborator The-Dream (“Single Ladies,” “Who Run the World (Girls)”) on multiple songs,
Longtime Jay-Z/ Kanye West collaborator No I.D.,
Songwriting/production duo Nova Wav (Denisia “Blu June” Andrews and Brittany “@Chi_Coney” Coney),
PC Records founder and Charli XCX collaborator A. G. Cook,
R&B singer and former Odd Future member Syd,
Longtime Kanye West collaborator Mike Dean (whose name is in all-caps for some reason)
artist/producer Labrinth,
Star producer and Chic co-founder Nile Rodgers, although it seems possible it could be a sample,
DJ/producer Honey Dijon,
Veteran hip-hop producer Hit-Boy (Jay-Z and Kanye’s “N—-s in Paris,” Beyonce’s “Sorry”)
And what appear to be samples of songs involving James Brown, Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer.
