Beyonce drops new album ‘Homecoming’

Beyonce drops new album ‘Homecoming’

She was the festival's first black woman to headline, and the career-spanning set, which featured 60+ people on stage as a marching band and dancers, decked out in fictional Beyoncé university wear, was a schooling and celebration of blackness.

Beyonce, the queen of surprise and so much else, has again dropped a record with no warning: a live album to go with an upcoming Netflix documentary on her performance at Coachella past year.

The album includes two bonus cuts near the end: "Before I Let Go" and "I Been On".

For what it's worth: Lemonade still is not on Spotify, so for subscribers, this might be the best way to hear "Formation", "Hold Up" and "Freedom", among other interspersed Lemonade tracks.

And then, lo and behold, this morning Beyoncé dropped a new surprise album to coincide with the release of her Netflix documentary, Homecoming. However, Bey kept a surprise up her sleeve with the release of an accompanying live album arriving on all major streaming platforms at the same time.

Netflix's Homecoming concert doc brings "the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement", per an official description, and shows more intimate behind-the-scenes moments as the singer prepared for the show. "There were days I thought I would never be the same", she says, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Homecoming film is now available on Netflix.
