WORLD STOP! The Queen Bey is coming…
Beyoncé is reportedly working on a new project — not necessarily an entire project, but a few tracks for a deluxe album filled with old songs, told by a source from US Weekly.
The insider also mentioned that Bey is also working on a Netflix documentary that is tied to her 2018 Coachella performance that will include additional footage. Today (April 7th), Netflix took to Twitter to unveil cover art that reads “Homecoming” with Greek letters mixed in between letters. At first you might think “well, that must be an ad for a show they have coming that week”, but you’ll find out that Netflix has no show called “Homecoming” in the works. However, earlier this week news came out that Beyonce was working on new endeavors, including new music and a Netflix documentary about her performance at Coachella which focused on the HBCU experience including Greek life with a Beyoncé inspired co-ed fraternity paired with a hell of a performance!
That performance sure was homecoming themed! The documentary was initially set to be released in summer, but if we are to believe this post, it would actually be dropping in 10 days. What makes all this better is that, we might get new music with it!
The “APESH**T” songstress has a lot in store for her fans and the beyhive this coming summer. In addition to her reported “deluxe album” and Netflix special, she’s additionally gearing up for the July release of Disney’s The Lion King remake, in which she voices Nala. Stay tuned!
Are you ready for the new coming of the queen era?
The Netflix trailer for the Beyoncé-directed documentary, Homecoming, that takes us through her iconic Coachella performance, dropped Monday morning (April 8th). Although Beyoncé’s voice is absent from the trailer, it promises to be more than just a touch of behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. Instead, the images are dubbed over with snippets from a Maya Angelou interview.
The Homecoming: a Film by Beyoncé trailer features videos of Beyoncé preparing for her 2018 concert, an homage to historically black colleges and universities specifically, but to the African-American and diasporic experience more broadly. In the trailer, footage shows Blue Ivy following in her mom’s dancing footsteps as she goes through choreography. While Bey and her dancers are practicing chair choreography, 7-year-old Blue Ivy is front and center rehearsing the same moves as she whips her hair back and forth.
We even get glimpses of Beyoncé’s twin babies, Rumi and Sir stealing the show as they make a quick cameo while their mom gives them kisses and plays with them. We also see the Queen Bey training and directing the band. There are also moving clips of dancers and band-members practicing, posing, braiding each other’s hair, and dapping each other up.
The 2 hour-plus film promises an “intimate, in-depth look” at the celebrated 2018 Coachella performance, revealing Beyoncé’s “emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement,” Netflix teased. It’s time to get in formation because the documentary will be available on the streaming platform Wednesday, April 17!
