Beyoncé Homecoming on Netflix

It’s been a busy few weeks for the Beyhive. Homecoming, an in-depth look at Beyoncé’s show-stopping performances at Coachella last year, dropped on Netflix last week (if you haven’t watched it, stop reading this and go watch it! I’ll wait.). Then Queen Bey dropped a live album to accompany the film, called Homecoming: The Live Album. THEN she released one of her most iconic albums Lemonade on Spotify. I know - it’s a lot.

Well, she wasn’t done yet. Beyoncé also posted an Instagram story. What was it? Well first, let’s backtrack a bit. One of the songs on Homecoming: The Live Album is called “Before I Let Go,” where she covered a 1981 song of the same name by Frankie Beverly & Maze. The lyrics include some pretty clear dance choreography:

Turn around, kick, then slide
And twirl that a** to the right, no
Ooh, bunny hop, bunny hop, drop, pop
Cross your legs, turn around and clap
Shuffle to the left, let’s flide now
Ooh, drop it down, drop it down low, low

Of course, Beyoncé executes these moves flawlessly in her concert, which has led to hundreds of fans taking to social media to dance along. Earlier this week, Bey took to her ‘gram to stan the hashtag #BeforeILetGoChallenge, and shared over a dozen videos of the Beyhive dancing along.

It’s officially on, ya’ll! Join the challenge by sharing your own video of you dancing with the hashtag #BeforeILetGoChallenge (and tag us @danceplug too - there’s nothing we love more than seeing our Pluggers strutting their stuff!). And if you can’t get enough of our Queen, there’s more good news - the superstar has reportedly signed a $60 million deal with Netflix that includes two more feature films. #slay
