Watch: Beyonce reprises cover of 'The Beautiful Ones' to honor Prince

Publish date:

Beyonce paid tribute to Prince by performing one of his biggest songs.

In front of purple lights, Queen B did a solo of "The Beautiful Ones" from Prince's "Purple Rain" album during her concert in Dallas Monday night, according to Rolling Stone. (Watch it above.)

She famously covered the song in 2011 in the United Kingdom (watch that video here).

This isn't Beyonce's first time honoring Prince since his April 21 death. On the opening night of her tour, she played "Purple Rain" between songs, and later thanked him for his "beautiful music," Billboard says.

Prince and Beyonce worked together in 2004, when they shared the stage at the Grammys. Beyonce later talked about that night, saying she was "in a trance" the entire time, according to the Huffington Post.

Prince had said he started to teach Beyonce some chords on the piano and told her to learn the instrument, Rolling Stone says. Beyonce played the piano in her video for "Love Drought" on her new album, "Lemonade."
