Beyoncé’s feature-length film, which will tell the story of her acclaimed Coachella comeback show in 2018, arrives April 17 and comes 10 days after the pop icon excited fans with a teaser image for the behind-the-scenes special.
While fans all over the world got excited and took to social media to share the news, none were perhaps as high-profile as Tottenham’s own Adele.
Yesterday (April 11), the self-proclaimed Beyoncé super fan shared her excitement for the film via a series of screenshots on Instagram showing a text message conversation with one of her friends. Discussing Homecoming, the pair animatedly chat about the initial Netflix teaser image.
“Oh my dayyyyyyyyysssss,” Adele exclaimed, at the start of the conversation. “Why does she always know when I need her.”
Appearing as if the pair are due to meet up around the release date of Homecoming, Adele then warned her friend that she better not watch it without her.
“It’s going to take every bit of strength I have to not watch it before I get on the plane,” her friend wrote, to which Adele replied, “You better not.”
Adele captioned the posts: “I love my friends so much.”
Homecoming premieres on Netflix worldwide on April 17.
In 2017, Adele famously dedicated her 2017 Album of the Year Grammy to Beyoncé, after her album ’25’ beat out Bey’s ‘Lemonade’.
“All us artists adore you,” Adele declared. “You are our light. The way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves. I love you. I always have. And I always will.”
Meanwhile, Beyoncé reportedly turned down a potential deal with Reebok after attending a pitch meeting where there were no other black people present. According to an ESPN reporter, the star told the brand: “Nobody in this room reflects my background, my skin colour, and where I’m from and what I wanna do.”
The news followed the confirmation of the singer’s new partnership with Adidas, which will see her launch her own “signature sneakers” as well as relaunch her Ivy Park activewear brand.
