When will ‘Renaissance’ be streaming? How to watch every Beyoncé documentary and concert film

Beyoncé is moving on to a new era in her music. If you haven’t listened to the singer’s new album, Cowboy Carter, yet — seriously, what are you doing reading this? Just a few months after her concert film/documentary, Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé, broke box office records, the Queen Bey announced that we were “ready” for her new music during a Super Bowl ad, officially ushering in Act II, AKA Cowboy Carter, AKA the sequel to Renaissance. Now that we’re in a brand new, distinctly Country era, fans may be wondering when the singer’s smash hit documentary capturing the making of Renaissance will be available to stream at home. Unfortunately, there’s no official word on when (or even if) Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé will be hitting HBO’s Max or Netflix or another popular streaming platform yet.

But when it comes to documentaries and concert films, Renaissance was in no way Beyoncé’s first rodeo. The musical icon has put out many projects offering her audience a glimpse of what goes into the making of her albums and world tours, as well as unforgettable visual albums and concert performances. So while you wait for Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé to become available to watch online, why not revisit some of the “Texas Hold ‘Em” singer’s past projects? Here’s how to watch all of Beyoncé’s documentaries, concert films and visual albums.

Beyoncé: I Am… World Tour (2010)

In celebration of her successful world tour for her album I Am… Sasha Fierce, Beyoncé: I Am… World Tour (2010) immortalizes the 110-show tour.
