One of the strangest controversies in 2018 was all of the drama around Beyonce’s amazing Coachella set. Beyonce was the big headliner for the 2018 Coachella Music Festival and she prepared. She was ready. People who were there had a religious experience. The footage was amazing. Beyonce created an entire concert devoted to Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs), the black educational experience and the black experience in total. Some people were shook. Some other people were weirdly salty about it, like how dare people… enjoy an incredible performance, how dare Beyonce celebrate HBCUs, how dare Beyonce create this incredible singular performance.
Well, as long suspected, Beyonce turned the whole thing into a documentary-slash-concert film. Yesterday, Netflix released this one tweet:

It doesn’t even say “Beyonce”! But the Beyhive KNEW. They knew that Queen Bey had given them a documentary. I’m actually surprised Bey didn’t give this to HBO, which is where she went for Lemonade. I guess she’s a Netflix girl now. Anyway, after everyone freaked out about that one tweet, the trailer dropped. I’m already having a quasi-religious experience to the choreography mixed with the Maya Angelou voiceover.
Beyonce owns Netflix now, I’m pretty sure. From now on, it’s Beyflix.
