Beyoncé comes to Netflix
One year after her acclaimed headlining set at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Beyoncé showcases the pop culture extravaganza in her highly-anticipated documentary Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé, which hit Netflix today.
The nearly two-and-a-half-hour film, which Beyoncé directed and produced, provides an “intimate, in-depth look” at the singer’s epic performance that paid tribute to America’s historically black colleges and universities. Through candid footage and interviews, fans are able to witness the “emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement.”
In addition to the film, Beyoncé has released an accompanying live album, Homecoming: The Live Album, featuring nearly 40 songs from her career-spanning set—from Crazy in Love to Shining plus two bonus tracks including a cover of Maze featuring Frankie Beverly’s Before I Let Go, produced by Tay Keith, and an alternate version of I Been On.
Homecoming features rehearsal footage, home videos, and backstage moments, along with appearances from JAY-Z and the couple’s three children—Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir. Her Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams also make cameos.
