Beyoncé Just Revamped This Oldie But Goodie, And Everyone’s Ready To Act A Summertime Fool
The Queen has social media in a frenzy... per usual.
The reigning queen, Ms. Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, released a millennial rendition of "Before I Let Go," and social media is ready to let the good times roll.
In royal tradition, Beyoncé's anticipated Netflix documentary Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé was accompanied with a surprise live album of the same title, as Blavity reported.
The album includes 40 tracks from the live version of Beyoncé's iconic 2018 Coachella performance, which is the focal point of her latest behind-the-scenes film.

Included on the album is a new record that fans weren't privy to at the time of the live performance—an updated, jazzed and funked-up hip-hop ode to Frankie Beverly and Maze's "Before I Let Go."
The original song, which is a staple at every coveted summer function, BBQ and party, does not disappoint in its reformed rendition. Miss Info reports that the song is produced by Tay Keith and samples two other short-shorts-with-a-crop-top favorites, DJ Jubilee's "Get It Ready, Ready" and Cameo's "Candy."
Beyoncé's vocals are strong and joyful, and the live band is crisp. Do you know what the best part of it all is? There are dance instructions mid-way through that demands a video.
Social media is ready.
