Update 17/4 Omg, so as if we couldn’t think Beyonce could bless us anymore - in the words of Adele, ‘How does she know when we need her?!’ - she has only gone and dropped a live album to accompany her Netflix documentary Homecoming. Yas!
The album features a recording of her entire Coachella headline performance – including the live versions of Sorry, Drunk In Love and Crazy In Love. And best of all? It has 40 tracks. It also features new track Before I Let Go, her first original release since teaming up with Jay-Z on The Carters in 2018.
Sounds like there’s a lot of new Beyonce material to get through. Not bad for a Wednesday. Read more details about the doc below...
All our dreams have come true, because Beyonce- Queen Bey - is dropping a documentary on Netflix. And by the looks of the trailer, it is going to be absolutely incredible.
In the clip, we see the 37-year-old mother-of-three like we’ve never seen her before, all while she prepared for last summer’s sublime Coachella performance. (She was the first black woman to headline the festival.) It also provides an insight into her family, with famous husband Jay-Z, seven-year-old daughter Blue Ivy and even twins Rumi and Sir - who the pair have kept very private up until now - all making an appearance.
And, in the background of the teaser, plays an interview with late poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou, which gives an insight into the purpose of the doc. In it, Maya is heard saying, ‘I have a chance to show how kind we can be, how intelligent and generous we can be. I have a chance to teach, and to love, and to laugh. I know that when I finish doing what I’m sent here to do, I will be called home. And I will go home without any fear, trepidations, wondering what’s gonna happen.'
‘Homecoming presents an intimate look at Beyoncé’s historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically black colleges and universities,’ the Netflix announcement reads. ‘Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement.’
Homecoming: A Film By Beyonce is out on April 17. Watch the trailer below.
