Our god is an awesome god! To keep your Beychella fix satisfied after *checks notes* viewing number 711 of her new Homecoming Netflix doc/concert film, Beyoncé has also finally, officially released the live version of her Coachella set. Drag those year-old bootlegs into the trash bin! The live album spans her 37-song set, combining both weekends — including her performances with Destiny’s Child, Jay-Z, and J Balvin — and is out now on all streaming services (yes, including even her old nemesis Spotify). And because our queen is a benevolent one, she’s included some incredible bonuses featuring new-ish music: There’s a version of young legend Blue Ivy covering the Black National Anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing” in rehearsals (which her mama also sang in the show). Naturally, she knows she’s so good at it, she does it twice: “I wanna do that again because it feels good,” she adorably says to a hearty chuckle from Beyoncé.

There’s also a live version of “I Been On” that didn’t make it into the show. Lastly — and most notably — Bey has also finally released her official cover of the Black National Dance, Frankie Beverly and Maze’s “Before I Let Go,” which she covered many years ago with Destiny’s Child though never formally released. (Instead, it has long existed online via leaks.) Her solo version, with an added rap verse, plays over Homecoming’s credits. May it slap at every cookout, blockparty, and function all summer long as our ancestors intended!
