Apple Music today debuted a new exclusive special feature that takes a look behind the scenes of the Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody." The 16-minute feature is called "Rami Malek: Becoming Freddie," and it focuses on the transformation that actor Rami Malek went through to portray the Queen lead vocalist Freddie Mercury.

Apple Music gained the special feature ahead of its release as an iTunes Extra in the upcoming full release of Bohemian Rhapsody, which is expected to hit digital retailers on January 22.

The featurette titled "Rami Malek: Becoming Freddie” is a fascinating 16-minute clip that gives fans a deeper understanding of Malek’s commitment to authenticity when portraying one of the greatest rock-n-rollers of all time.

Quite a few exclusive clips, films, and music-focused documentaries have been released on Apple Music over the years. These include films centered around Kesha, The Chainsmokers, Flume, Sam Smith, Danny Brown, Bert Berns, Sean Combs, Clive Davis, Harry Styles, Major Lazer, and others.

Hasn't everyone heard Bohemian Rhapsody at least 1500 times? It was an outrageous song though. But man, maybe it's time to put it to rest.
I've been a big Queen fan for about 30 years. I'm still not tired of that song, but I've never played that song excessively.

Odd as it might sound, even after 30 years I may have heard that song fewer times than some tepid fans.

Bohemian Rhapsody was an awesome flick, but I think if you're a die hard Queen fan you needed to go into it knowing that they majorly tweaked the timeline of events and made up a few things for dramatic effect. Even better would have been to walk in knowing the biggest liberties they took in changing the story.

Yeah, you're supposed to expect that in biopics. What I mean is that they did such a good job in recreating Queen it made me forget that I was watching a biopic until something yanked me back from fantasy. Had I known what was altered, those moments in the film would have been less jarring.
