While Beyonce wasn’t pictured, sources say she’s also super busy behind-the-scenes, working on her seventh solo album that promises to be more visually appealing than Lemonade and could be a Netflix feature.

Sources have told The Sun that Beyoncé is exploring a deal with the streaming service.

DJ Khaled and Chloe x Halle opened for U.S. leg of the tour. That’s fitting because DJ Khaled released a single entitled “I Got the Keys” featuring Jay-Z and Future that was  featured on his album “Major Key.”
