Is there a celebrity having a better April than Beyoncé?

It all started at the top of the month when it was announced that Texas' own pop queen has partnered with Adidas for several endeavors, including a signature collection.

Last week, she dropped her documentary Homecoming — about her epic performance at Coachella last year — on Netflix, with the 40-track, companion live album released soon after.

If that wasn’t enough, she just allowed her 2016 opus, Lemonade (which was only available to stream on Tidal), to stream on Spotify and Apple Music.

And, now, here comes the news that there will be a musical based on Mrs. Knowles Carter’s years with Destiny’s Child. Beyonce’s father (and Destiny’s Child manager) Mathew Knowles says on his website that he’s working on a stage show that will portray "an honest depiction of the achievements, obstacles, and evolution of the world’s most iconic girl group and the mastermind behind them."

Knowles is teaming up with director, writer, and producer Je’Caryous Johnson to launch Survivor: The Destiny's Child Musical in 2020. It is expected to premiere in her hometown of Houston and later go to Broadway and London's West End, with designs for a world tour.
