Beyoncé’s historic 2018 Coachella performance may have only been hours long, but it’s still the gift that keeps on giving.
Now accompanied with the internet-breaking Netflix docu-film Homecoming, which chronicles the magic behind the show, Bey also dropped a brand-new album with original sounds from the performance, titled Homecoming: The Live Album. Fans can now relive the outstanding, HBCU-inspired Coachella performance that paraded headlines last year in 40 fresh tracks, including the Queen Bey’s original cover of another Black music classic, Frankie Beverly and Maze’s “Before I Let Go.”
Complete with production from emerging hip-hop hitmaker Tay Keith, Bey croons her rendition of the throwback to close out the album, complete with all the horns, drums and hums of the Beychella marching band’s live instrumentation before an interpolation of Cameo’s “Candy” invades the beat. Per usual, Bey rose the bar on Black excellence in its most superb forms of homage, and the BeyHivers are two-stepping their way into ‘80s soul nostalgia right along with her.
