Beyonce started a viral dance challenge with the #BeforeILetGoChallenge.
The surprise release of Beyonce's live album perfectly followed her Netflix special Homecoming, a documentary uncovering the gruesome preparation preceding the timeless Beychella performance. Since then, Beyonce decided to blend fun and dance with the new #BeforeILetGoChallenge. The iconic singer made the challenge the core focus of her first-ever Instagram story last Monday. Herein, we see numerous clips of fans busting a move over the track "Before I Let Go." The new song was one of the added bonuses on the live album's tracklist.

Indubitably, the song's lyrics does instruct listeners to partake in a series of different moves. And the dancers followed through on it while also adding their own twist. Moreover, in addition to sharing the video, baddie Bey encouraged more fans to do the challenge and add their spin to it. The hashtag #BeforeILetGoChallenge now ties to countless new takes and choreographies by fans.
The inspiration behind Bey's "Before I Let Go" stems from Frankie Beverly and Maze's 1981 jam of the same name. Rhythmic essentials were also derived from the funky 1986 smash-hit "Candy" by Cameo. Leave it up to Beyonce to revive both tracks so well and with such uniqueness. Will you be trying out the #BeforeILetGo challenge?
