Beyoncé’s Netflix Documentary Is Just The Start Of What She’s Got Planned For 2019
Mark your calendar.
Beyoncé threw the internet into a frenzy with a cryptic tweet. On Sunday, Netflix posted a title card on Twitter with the phrase ‘Homecoming’ written in Greek style lettering against a mustard yellow background.
The Beyhive was quick to point out that the font and color of the title card were similar to a sweatshirt Beyoncé wore at Coachella last year.
Now it’s official: a documentary about the making of Beyoncé’s historical performance will be released on April 17.
Beyoncé became the first women of color to headline Coachella in 2018- using her platform to celebrate Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across America alongside donating $100,000 to Xavier, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune Cookman Universities.
During her performance, she incorporated HBCU traditions including stepping to trumpet confetti to a full-blown marching band. She also paid homage to African American sororities and fraternities through her wardrobe. She created her own fictional “Be(y)ta Delta Kappa” organization, Queen Bey then wore the sorority inspired iconic hoodie designed by Olivier Rousteing for her performance of ‘Drunk in Love’.
True to form, Beyoncé has yet to comment on speculation about the documentary, which Netflix describes as tracing the “emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement” featuring candid footage and interviews.
However, it seems like 2019 may be the year that Beyoncé will drop another solo LP, her first since 2016’s Lemonade. There have even been rumors that the whole LP will drop on Netflix in its entirety due to it being highly visual in nature.
