Beyonce covered Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones” and it was perfect [VIDEO]

It’s been a couple of weeks since Prince’s sudden passing on April 21 at the way-too-young age of 57, but the tributes just keep on pouring in. After all, an icon as grandiose as Prince is hard to forget. 

In her latest tribute to the late musician, Beyonce treated concertgoers in Dallas, Texas to a beautiful cover of Prince’s 1984 hit “The Beautiful Ones” and it was perfect.

This wasn’t the first time Bey covered the track - she put her spin on it back in 2009 and 2011 - but it was her first time singing it live in concert. It’s also safe to say her previous renditions didn't have as much passion nor meaning behind them as the one at the Dallas show. 

In addition to her breathtaking performance, Beyonce has also began playing “Purple Rain” as an interlude between songs during every single show of her Formation World Tour, which is touching in its own right.

Watch her belt out “The Beautiful Ones” below and get ready to bow down to Queen Bey.
