According to a report from Variety, the singer struck a $60 million deal with the streaming titan for three specials. It’s not yet clear whether Homecoming, the two-hour-plus concert film, documentary, and live album, chronicling her headlining Coachella set, released earlier this week, is included in the deal. The report also states that Netflix won over HBO, who hosted the visual portions of Lemonade and her On The Run tour with JAY-Z, in a bidding battle for exclusivity on the specials.

Unrelated to the Netflix deal, but equally enticing, the singer’s last studio album, Lemonade, is set to break free of TIDAL, where it has lived since its April 2016 release. Lemonade is expected to arrive on all digital streaming platforms next week. Whether her upcoming specials will be centered on performances or more reminiscent of the straight ahead 2013 documentary, Life Is But a Dream, remains a bit of a mystery. But, as always, we’ll know as soon as she wants us to know.
Beyonce’s Homecoming is streaming on Netflix now. Sit with that a few times over as updates and new details pour in over the weeks and months ahead.
