The events are connected to the album she dropped Friday called “When I Get Home,” which Knowles wrote, performed and executive produced. A news release notes that the album draws on the influence of Houston’s Third Ward where Knowles grew up. The album is called an "exploration of origin."

According to the release, Knowles wanted to answer the question, "How much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution?" To do that, she returned to Third Ward Houston to answer it.

Knowles' album includes contributions from Tyler, the Creator, Chassol, Playboi Carti, Standing on the Corner, Panda Bear, Devin the Dude, The-Dream and others. It also features samples from Third Ward’s own Debbie Allen, Phylicia Rashad, poet Pat Parker and Scarface.

1. "Things I Imagined"
