In the two years since the release of Beyoncé's sixth album Lemonade, the Beyhive has been abuzz with speculations about the singer's next trip into the studio. We were temporarily satiated by last year's Everything is Love (a surprise collaboration with her husband Jay-Z), but fans are itching to know when we can expect a new solo album. Fortunately, Beyoncé is reportedly hard at work on some new music—B7 could be closer than we think!
Before you start with the conspiracies about what the vibe of the next album (the Hive loves a conspiracy theory), slow your roll. The music might not be what you're thinking. Per Us Weekly, our fave is actually in the studio recording "a couple new tracks [for] a deluxe album filled with old songs."
Which means that any one of the albums in Bey's amazing discography could be getting an update...or maybe we're finally getting a full Beyoncé compilation album! Imagine "Baby Boy" (Dangerously in Love) smoothly transitioning to "Hold Up" (Lemonade). I'm living!
Along with the deluxe album, the Grammy winner is also said to have signed off on a Netflix documentary that follows her history-making Coachella set in 2018. This is huge for those of us who have begging and pleading for something similar to The Beyoncé Experience Live, the special DVD release that recapped her third world tour of the same name. Just the thought of being able to relive Beyoncé's epic Coachella performance (including that cute moment with Solange) has me ready to to stop playing around and finally get my own Netflix account instead of leeching off of someone else. Growth.
Between new music, a documentary, and the July release of The Lion King, summer 2019 definitely belongs to Beyoncé, and we legit cannot wait.
