Beyonce – Before I Let Go, Just like in 2016 when her album Lemonade was accompanied by a sixty-five minute film aired on HBO, Beyoncehas adopted a similar strategy this time around as well. The live album titled HOMECOMING: THE LIVE ALBUM features songs she did live on the stage but there’s a nice little surprise. Right at the end of the film during credits, a new song called ‘Before I Let Go’ plays.
The song is actually a cover of the Frankie Beverly and Maze R&B classic of the same name from 1981 and surprisingly produced by Tay Keith. It should also be noted that the Knowles-Carters have often referenced this song over the years including back in 2017 when Tina Knowles, Bey’s mother, shared a video on social media of herself andJay Z dancing the electric slide to the original version. Tina also wrote on Instagram back in 2018 that her daughter told her, “I have worked very hard to get to the point where I have a true voice. And at this point in my life and my career I have a responsibility to do what’s best for the world and not what is most popular.”
