Shot over eight months, the Netflix special is part concert film, part documentary, giving the Beyhive a behind-the-scenes look at the two weekend performances that made her the first Black woman to headline the festival. She also wrote, directed and produced the project herself.
The Houston diva also surprised the masses with an unannounced companion piece to the special, releasing Homecoming: The Live Album on husband, JAY-Z’s, streaming service, TIDAL. Check out fan reaction below.
