Beyonce got us all again.

The incomparable singer just dropped a 40-track live album “Homecoming,” to coincide with the release of her Netflix documentary of the same name.

According to Variety, the album includes 2 bonus tracks, “Before I Let Go,” a cover of Frankie Beverly and Maze’s 1981 classic, which is also featured in the film’s end credits, and “I Been On,” a revamp of a song previously released on Soundcloud.

Also on the album is an acapella rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” sung by Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy.

Rumors of a new album began swirling late Tuesday and then shortly after midnight, Homecoming appeared on streaming services. Homecoming’s music is taken from her 2018 Coachella performance on which her Netflix doc centers, which was a tribute to HBCU marching band culture.

Fans remain hopeful that B7, which was what fans were speculating that the album would be called, will be released as a separate studio album in the near future.

Beyonce has become known for dropping surprise albums including her 2014 self-titled release Beyonce and Lemonade, which dropped in 2016 following her HBO feature of the same name.

Homecoming, now available on Netflix, follows Beyonce’s preparation and performance at Coachella where she was the first Black woman to headline the show.
