Beyoncé‘s Homecoming, a concert film recorded during her 2018 Coachella set, dropped on Netflix on Wednesday morning. The Netflix film was first announced earlier this month. 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.
Homecoming: The Live Album features all of the audio from Beyoncé’s “Beychella” headline set, including appearances from Jay-Z and Solange, alongside the Destiny’s Child reunion. There is also a recording of Blue Ivy singing “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
In addition to this the album also features two bonus songs: a cover of Frankie Beverly and Maze’s 1981 single “Before I Let Go,” produced by Tay Keith. The song samples Cameo’s “Candy.” The album also fetures “I Been On,” which was first released in 2013 but has never featured on an official album.
The live album is broken up into 40 tracks, including interludes with titles such as “So Much Damn Swag” and “The Bzzzz Drumline.” The Netflix movie, meanwhile, offers fans into rehearsals and quieter backstage moments.
