A meme review of Beyoncé's incredible Netflix documentary Homecoming...

It's official. Beyoncé's new Netflix documentary, Homecoming, has arrived and it's beautiful.

Beyoncé is no stranger to breaking the internet. Over the course of her historic career, the 37-year-old star has mastered the art of stopping the world (carry on). 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)'. A viral moment. BEYONCÉ? A game-changing release. Lemonade? An artistic triumph. In this unpredictable universe, there is one thing that we can all rely on; Beyoncé never fails us. Homecoming proves just that and, understandably, fans are living for it.

Check out our Homecoming meme review below.

Homecoming is, in Netflix's words, an "intimate, in-depth look at Beyoncé's celebrated 2018 Coachella performance", which documents "the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement". Beyoncé already stunned us all with Beychella in 2018 but Homecoming takes it to new levels with impeccable filming and a first-hand view of how Beyoncé managed to put it all together. Homecoming shows a genius at their peak and it's glorious.

If that weren't enough, Beyoncé also gives us a glimpse into her personal life (Blue, Sir Carter and Rumi each have adorable cameos) and accompanied the film with a live album including a studio version of 'I Been On' and a brand new Maze cover of 'Before I Let Go'. We've been blessed. Naturally, fans have meme-d every single moment, so, without further ado, here lies a meme by meme recap of Homecoming.
