WATCH: Beyoncé’s Cover of Prince’s ‘The Beautiful Ones’ Is Hauntingly Beautiful
During the Dallas, Texas stop of her Formation World Tour, Queen Bey paid tribute to Prince when she reprised her cover of the late singer’s “The Beautiful Ones” from her appearance at the 2011 Glastonbury Festival. With the stage aptly bathed in purple light, the songstress even hit Prince’s falsetto note as she belted, “Do you want her/ Or do you want me?/ ‘Cause I want you.” (Which is kind of fitting when you consider the subject matter of Lemonade, no?)
Previously, Beyoncé saluted Prince with a singalong to “Purple Rain” on the first night of the tour.
Beyoncé first met Prince when the two were preparing for their joint performance at the 2004 Grammys. The duo hit the stage together to play a medley of songs from Purple Rain and “Crazy in Love.”
