Last Monday, Beyoncé recorded her first Instagram story ever and showed concert footage of a mass of fans swaying to her version of “Before I Let Go” in what appears to be a remixed version of the Electric Slide. The song appears on her Netflix special “Homecoming,” which is a concert film centering on her monumental 2018 Coachella performances dedicated to HBCUs.

Her rendition includes the following lyrics and dance instructions, telling folks to, “Turn around, kick, then slide/ And twirl that ass to the right, now/ Ooh, bunny hop, bunny hop, drop, pop/ Cross your legs, turn around and clap/ Shuffle to the left, let’s glide now.”
