We’ve been waiting for this. After just playing the song “Purple Rain” during her “Formation World Tour” opener in Miami, Beyoncé took the stage in Dallas on Monday (May 9) and covered the Prince’s song “The Beautiful Ones,” off the Purple Rain album.
With purple lights surrounding her and her hair blowing in the wind, ‘Yoncé belted out the classic on her knees for the AT&T Stadium audience.
Back in 2011, Bey covered the same track during her Glastonbury performance.
Before that, in 2006, Bey inducted Prince into the U.K. Hall of Fame with a speech about his greatness. “So many words spring to mind when describing him,” she said at the time. “Multitalented, innovative, genius, exceptional, groundbreaking, passionate, unique, out of this world, and extraordinary.”
