Hints at a new album, possibly entitled “B7,” have surfaced online ahead of “Homecoming’s” Netflix debut on Wednesday. The lyrics website Genius shows the album listed under Beyonce’s discography, with an April 18 expected release date.
Some Twitter reports showed a track listing on the Genius site as well, but it has evidently been taken down or didn’t exist.
A screengrab from Genius’ website is below.
Whispers about a possible live performance album from her Coachella performance (the subject of the new documentary) were circulating after the trailer dropped last week. However, some fans are wildly speculating that this could be entirely new. Reminder: this is all speculation, but it’s fun to see the Beyhive get revved up for yet another surprise drop from their queen.
Beyonce, while known for the 2013 unannounced drop of her self-titled album, is also known for planning every step of her career down to the last detail. That makes reports of an album leak a bit suspect.
At any rate, fans can at least be certain they’ll have “Homecoming” to look forward to.
“‘Homecoming’ presents an intimate look at Beyoncé’s historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically black colleges and universities,” the release announcing “Homecoming” read. “Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement.”
