Beyoncé has surprised fans by dropping her hotly-anticipated Netflix documentary 'Homecoming', which focuses on her Coachella 2018 headline performance.
The documentary features backstage footage, interviews in the run-up to the historic event and candid videos of Bey bringing her vision to life.
In addition to the documentary, Beyoncé dropped a surprise new album of live recordings from her entire Coachella set. The 40-track album includes performances of 'Drunk In Love,' 'Love On Top' and more of her beloved hits.
The album also includes two brand new songs. The first, a cover of ‘Before I Let Go’, the 1981 song by Frankie Beverly and Maze which features during the documentary's end credits. The second, a new original release titled ‘Before I Let Go’.
“So many people who are culturally aware and intellectually sound are graduates from historically black colleges and universities, including my father," the songstress says at one point during the documentary.
"There is something incredibly important about the HBCU experience that must be celebrated and protected." The documentary also shares a rare insight into Bey's family life with husband Jay-Z, and children But Ivy, Rumi and Sir.
Beyoncé's performance, which paid tribute to black culture, specifically historically black colleges and universities, was hailed as a historic moment by various entertainment and media outlets at the time.
It became the most-watched live performance on YouTube of all time, and featured surprise performances from her sister Solange, Jay-Z, and an on-stage reunion with her Destiny's Child bandmates.
