    Following the release of Beyoncé's secret album, Aaron Hicklin is offered unprecedented access to the people who know her best. With these insights he joins the star on tour and asks her about feminism, sexuality and giving her fans what she wants

    If you pooled the collective memories of the staff at Parkwood, the small, can-do entertainment company that Beyoncé built, you might have enough material for the world's longest biography.
