A 40 track live album and 'Blow' isn't on it??

the "before i let go" cover rules so much

Is the Netflix video different from the concert video that was put out immediately after the performance?

i never got around to watching it so this was also my like third thought

the film is so good

Lemonade's now on Spotify, with a demo of what eventually became "Sorry" appended at its end (and which is possessed of a lot less braggadocio and a lot more vulnerability than the final track - it's closer in sound to "Love Drought" or something her sister might make)

I would love to know why Rebirth Brass Band doesn't get any publishing for the two songs that she uses parts from 'Do Whatcha Wanna' on (the opening and Single Ladies)

Oh. After digging, it turns out Rebirth lifted that trombone line from a Con Funk Shun track. Goddamnit, brass bands. Too bad she didn't throw in the melody.

the film is wonderful

the film is cool. i went in pretty neutral/not in the mood to watch it but it was obviously a fantastic show and they captured it perfectly.

loved it, i want to watch it again

Now that a quick google search returns at least five articles on the cultural references in Homecoming, and they all start with New Orleans and Rebirth, I'm mad again. The bassline in 'Single Ladies' should have gotten some writing credit for sure.

Obviously the show is amazing, and it's great to see Les Twins on stage (even though they never really get to do their thing, but it's a Beyonce show I get it).

the straight up documentary parts of the film are wonderful, i even managed to convert something beyoncé said into good writing advice for myself, but i kinda hope 1) there's a physical release 2) it includes a version of the show without breaks

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 24 April 2019 16:28 (one year ago) link

hope Liz Harris got a fat check from this

Oh was she sampled?

Buddy of mine got sampled :)

apparently "Made of Air" gets a couple of needle drops xp

Re:the movie, I was hoping for a little more documentary style than behind the scenes if that makes sense but the Sons of Kemet background music made my night.

Fetchboy, Saturday, 27 April 2019 05:14 (one year ago) link

Grouper was in the background as well which was cool

two weeks pass...

I’m not a huge Beyoncé fan, but this film is extraordinary.

Hold the fuck up, a grouper song is in this???

Caroline Shaw's Partita for 8 voices, too.

New Lion King-related collaborative album out tomorrow, featuring, amongst others, African artists ranging from Wizkid to Busiswa to Shatta Wale:

the film dialogue interludes are slightly distracting but the album is really good

dyl, Saturday, 20 July 2019 05:12 (one year ago) link

The thing I find really distracting is how much of a copy this is of Kendrick Lamars Black Panther soundtrack, except that one seemed pretty personal to him. I have no idea why Beyoncé would make a Lion King album, except that she's in the film. Some of the songs are good, though.

Frederik B, Saturday, 20 July 2019 13:08 (one year ago) link

My main hope for this is "Brown Skin Girl" becomes a massive hit, so I never have to see Wizkid's entire career summarized as "Drake’s 'One Dance' collaborator" again

rob, Saturday, 20 July 2019 15:40 (one year ago) link

i don't really care about it being a 'copy' of the black panther soundtrack - doing a film tie-in compilation/soundtrack album with more effort put into the curation and production than usual isn't really some wildly innovative idea. with the success of the black panther soundtrack i'm not at all surprised that others are doing something similar. there's not really a reason it needs to exist and i'd much rather a beyonce-does-afropop album as its own thing but since it does exist i'm glad it's quite good. it certainly seems to be by far the best thing related to the lion king remake.

"find your way", "jara ara e", "brown skin girl" and "my power" are the highlights

ufo, Sunday, 21 July 2019 10:17 (one year ago) link

likely deserves a thread? it's good.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 21 July 2019 13:58 (one year ago) link

Was toying with that idea as well. Mind if I start it, or are you on it already?

breastcrawl, Sunday, 21 July 2019 14:11 (one year ago) link

Whoomp, there it is: the LiON KiNG: the GiFT <<>> where Beyoncé meets with Afropop
