Beyonce Drops Surprise ‘Homecoming’ Album & It’s Already #1 On iTunes + Blue Ivy Shows Off Her Vocals
It’s only been a few hours since Beyonce released her latest album, which was a shock to all of her fans. But it didn’t take long for it skyrocket to the top of the iTunes chart.
Homecoming, which features the 40-song set from her iconic 2018 Coachella performance, is said to go hand-in-hand with her new documentary on Netflix of the same name. The documentary details the behind-the-scenes of the singer gearing up for her big moment. While fans were excited about the movie, little did they know she would be dropping a surprise album the same day it debuted on the streaming service.
Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy also makes her own appearance on the album and movie during Lift Every Voice and Sing.
They share an adorable mother-daughter moment as Blue Ivy reveals her passion for singing.
The projects also features that epic moment when Destiny’s Child reunited on stage for their hits Lose My Breath, Say My Name and Soldier.
Beyonce opened up about her Coachella performance in 2018 stating:
“I had a clear vision for Coachella. I was so specific because I’d seen it, I’d heard it, and it was already written inside of me. One day I was randomly singing the black national anthem to Rumi while putting her to sleep. I started humming it to her every day. In the show at the time I was working on a version of the anthem with these dark minor chords and stomps and belts and screams. After a few days of humming the anthem, I realized I had the melody wrong. I was singing the wrong anthem. One of the most rewarding parts of the show was making that change. I swear I felt pure joy shining down on us. I know that most of the young people on the stage and in the audience did not know the history of the black national anthem before Coachella. But they understood the feeling it gave them.
It was a celebration of all the people who sacrificed more than we could ever imagine, who moved the world forward so that it could welcome a woman of color to headline such a festival.”
