The picture sparked a frenzy as her fans sought to know who the new man in their favorite's life is. Well, his identity is now confirmed. Knowles' boyfriend is the jazz composer, Gio Escobar.
Escobar was born in 1995 in Brooklyn, New York, and is of Puerto Rican descent. Like Knowles, he is also a music lover and founded Standing on the Corner, a Brooklyn-based experimental jazz and hip-hop group.

Besides making music, Escobar has experience working on radio and co-hosted the radio show, "Stay Inside," on "Red Bull Radio," alongside rapper and producer Earl Sweatshirt.
Although Knowles is only just revealing Escobar to the world, the lovebirds were allegedly first spotted being cozy in August 2019, at a time when she was still married.
The singer said she met a phenomenal man eleven years ago, who changed every existence of her life.
A source confirmed to ET that Escobar and Knowles have been dating for a while and are very happy together, adding that they make for a sweet couple.
The source's words also confirm the pictures of Knowles and her new man now circulating on social media that show them enjoying a sunny day, smiling and pleased to be with each other.

In a statement, the singer said she met a phenomenal man eleven years ago, who changed every existence of her life, but that they had separated and parted ways.
Knowles and Ferguson tied the knot on November 16, 2014, at Louisiana's Marigny Opera House. Guests at the wedding included Solange's sister, Beyoncé, her husband, Jay-Z, and their daughter, Blue Ivy.
Fans will be looking on to see how Knowles and Escobar's relationship turns out. For now, they will be hoping the singer shares more pictures showing her and her lovebird's happy moments.
