Something went wrong.

The track is a bonus feature on “Homecoming: The Live Album.”

Beyoncé’s love for Frankie Beverly and Maze is real, and she solidified her adoration by covering their 1981 classic hit, “Before I Let Go,” a bonus track off of her surprise Homecoming: The Live Album release. Putting her own spin on the record and including other jams in the production (is that Cameo’s “Candy” that we hear mixed in there?), Beyoncé modernized the hit while retaining the mellow, groove-like feel of the original. For those that have watched Bey’s Netflix Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé Coachella documentary all the way until the end, they’ll find that the singer plays this song during the credits.

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 and Jay 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.”

Beyonce – Before I Let Go Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You make me happy
This you can bet, yeah
It’s clear right beside me, yeah
And I won’t forget

And I really love you
You should know
I wanna make sure I’m right, boy
Before I let go

[Verse 2]
Now, we had our good times
That we can say
We hurted each other, yeah
And, boy, it’s a shame

I won’t be foolish, no
I wanna know
I wanna make sure I’m bright, boy
Before I let go
Yeah, uh, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
You know, I thank God sun rises and shines on you
You know there’s nothing, nothing, nothing I would not do, oh
Before I let you go, oh
I would never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never
Let you go before I go

[Verse 3]
I pull up to Coachella (pull up)
And boost with the ghost fellas (pull up)
I brought the squad with me (squad)
Black on black bandanas, I
Dussé and Champagne (champagne)
I did the damn thing (I did the damn thing)
Dirty Diana (dirty Diana)
Singing and dancing all in the rain
Ooh (to the left), I just wanna have a good time (turn around)
Turn around, kick then slide
And twirl that ass to the right, now
Ooh, bunny hop, bunny hop, drop, pop
Cross your legs, turn around and clap
Shuffle to the left, let’s glide now
Ooh, drop it down, drop it down low, low
Low, low, low to the floor, floor
Bring it up, clap, then roll, roll
Step on em, step on em, step on em, step
Step on em, kick on em, stomp then you step
Swag the right, surf the left
Work the middle till it hurt a little

[Outro]
Before I let, before I let, b-b-before I let go
Before I let, before I let, b-b-before I let goBefore I Let Go
