Last year, Beyoncé gave an undeserving world a truly legendary Coachella performance, and then a documentary to further immortalize that performance. Now, she’s blessing us all with not just one but two more projects coming to Netflix, according to the deal she penned with the streaming giant.
On Friday, we learned Beyoncé’s Coachella performance brought in a total of $8 million for the singer, despite earlier reports claiming she only made half of what Ariana Grande made for headlining the festival.
Honestly, three Beyonce projects for $60M is a damn steal, even if she has total creative control (as I assume she does.) https://t.co/KwWE95gHQr

So she took that $4M from Coachella and flipped it into $60M. Queen behavior. https://t.co/3kuZNjQlXE

She flipped that $8 milli into film and audio streaming rights, long term deals and outright ownership.

The Beyhive is understandably freaking out on Twitter following the news.
Some are theorizing what the next two projects might be about. Beyoncé stans think one of the projects will revolve around one of her past tours, namely ” The Formation World Tour” or her and Jay-Z’s “On the Run II” tour.
While many believe the last project will be about her next and seventh studio album.
So…I’m thinking a FWT BTS doc and the third & final project will be tied to B7. https://t.co/j8FymPRNDO

Oh shit! We might be getting The formation world tour or OTRII & B7!!!!I’m so so thankful to be a fan right now.
She reminded me that I can’t be what I can’t see, & I’ve seen everything I imagined.
