9. Last, but not least, everyone's fave hip hopera, Carmen, is coming to Netflix on June 1.

It was so hard to keep this a secret! As a proud member of the hive with an appreciation for the early '00s, I’m happy to announce that another @Robert_Townsend classic, Carmen: A Hip Hopera will be coming to @netflix (US) June 1.

This movie was my JAM! Can't wait to watch it at least 7 times when it drops.

Wow, what a week. Tune in next week for more!
