Beyoncé Just Dropped A Surprise Album To Coincide With 'Homecoming' Netflix Documentary

Beyoncé Just Dropped A Surprise Album To Coincide With 'Homecoming' Netflix Documentary

Queen Bey - and queen of surprise - just casually dropped an entire new album to coincide with her Homecoming documentary landing on Netflix today.

The live album features a recording of her entire Coachella 2018 headline performance, which includes live versions of 'Sorry', 'Drunk In Love', 'Formation', and 'Crazy In Love' plus loads more of her material.

There's a total of 40 tracks on Homecoming Live, which includes a cover of 'Before I Let Go', a 1981 song by Frankie Beverly and Maze appearing at the end of the Netflix documentary on Beychella.

Beyoncé's put her own twist on the cover with her own material, making the song her first original release since collaborating with husband Jay-Z on The Carters in 2018.

Both Netflix documentary Homecoming and this brand new album captures Bey's Coachella headline performance, which saw her become the first black woman to headline the musical festival in its almost 30 year history.

Cameos from Destiny's Child and Beyoncé's sister Solange Knowles also appear on the new album.

So, if you weren't able to see Beyoncé take to the Coachella stage last year, you'll be able to fully experience her performances with the album and doc.

The surprise album drop comes after fans noticed music website Genius listed another album B7, with an expected release date of 18th April.

However, Beyoncé's new album seems to have dropped a day earlier.

Netflix only announced the Homecoming last week, describing it as: "An in-depth look at Beyoncé's celebrated 2018 Coachella performance from creative concept to cultural movement."

Footage of the iconic performances will be interspersed with candid clips of Beyoncé and will include interviews with the megastar detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision - from the initial concept to the cultural movement it inspired.

Needless to say, we'll be listening to Beyoncé on repeat today.
