Time to swarm, Beyhive.

Beyoncé gave the Beyhive a couple of gifts to go with her highly anticipated documentary.
The singer dropped HOMECOMING: THE LIVE ALBUM on streaming services at 3 a.m. Wednesday, the same time her Homecoming documentary premiered on Netflix, according to The New York Times.
In true Beyoncé fashion, the album was unannounced, but when you’re the queen, PR campaigns are unnecessary.
The album splits her Beychella concert into 40 separate tracks and interludes. It features every song heard at the iconic concert including her stirring version of “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
Bey also included “Lose My Breath,” “Soldier” and “Say My Name,” the three songs she performed with former Destiny’s Child group mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
The album also features three bonus tracks. “I Been On” is a cut of her song “***Flawless,” while “Before I Let Go” is a cover of Frankie Beverly and Maze’s cookout classic.
Variety reports this is the second time Beyoncé has covered the song. She did one with Destiny’s Child in 1997, but it was never released.
The third bonus track is a rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” from heir to the throne Blue Ivy Carter.
This is the “Kitty Kat” singer’s first solo project since she had the word sippin’ on Lemonade in 2016. She released EVERYTHING IS LOVE with husband Jay-Z in June 2018 while the couple was on tour.
Beyoncé is truly the gift who keeps on giving.
