Beyonce has dropped a surprise 40-track companion album of her “Homecoming” 2018 Coachella performance to accompany the Netflix documentary about the event that arrived early this morning.
What We Know:
- The album includes two bonus cuts near the end: “Before I Let Go” and “I Been On.” The former is a cover of a Frankie Beverly & Maze classic featured in the documentary’s closing credits, while the latter is an updated version of a song that was uploaded to SoundCloud back in 2013; “Bow Down” was included on the singer’s self-titled album that year.
- Rumors of a new album called “B7” spread in the hours before the live album’s release based on a cover image of an album bearing that title taken from the Genius lyric-decoding website, however that may have been a placeholder built by the website in anticipation of a possible “Homecoming” soundtrack album; a search on “Beyonce B7 Genius” led to the “Homecoming” lyrics on Wednesday morning.
- In addition to the ‘Homecoming’ documentary that dropped on Netflix, Beyonce has reportedly signed a 60 million dollar deal to produce two more films.
- The Homecoming Live album is available on all streaming services and available to purchase wherever music is sold.
