The album coincides with her Netflix documentary of the same name.
If you were like the many who stayed up all night for the release of Beyoncé’s highly anticipated Netflix documentary ‘Homecoming’, you might’ve caught wind of an extra surprise Beyoncé had in store for her fans.
Last night the songstress dropped a surprise live album, ‘Homecoming’, to coincide with her Netflix documentary of the same name.

The hour and forty-nine-minute-long album consist of forty tracks from her 2018 Coachella set, including two bonus tracks.
One of the bonus tracks is a Beyonce cover of Frankie Beverly and Maze’s hit “Before I Let Go”. And if you listen closely, you’ll even hear a sample of Cameo’s “Candy”. Beyonce made sure to give us a little extra somethin’ somethin’ for the cookouts this summer.
As previously stated, Netflix released a Beyoncé documentary entitled Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé on Wednesday.

The doc gives an in-depth look into the process of how everything came together for that iconic performance. Fans got to see an more intimate side of Beyonce than they’ve never seen before. The singer opened up about being a new mom to twins while rehearsing for her Coachella performance.
“I was supposed to do Coachella the year prior, but I got pregnant unexpectedly,” Beyonce said. “It ended up being twins, which was even more of a surprise. My body went through more than I knew it could.”
Bey revealed that by the time she gave birth, she was 218 pounds and had suffered from high blood pressure, toxemia, and preeclampsia. Even worse, she revealed that one of the twins’ heartbeats “paused a few times” which led to an emergency C-section.
Admitting that afterward, she didn’t think she’d ever be the same. Yet the star managed to push through, making sacrifices that fans weren’t aware of.
Beyoncé’s Coachella set, rightfully nicknamed Beychella, will go down as one of, if not, the greatest live performances in entertainment history.
Yet the global superstar still has more to offer. She will voice Nala in Disney’s live-action film The Lion King, in theaters July 19th.
