At a tour stop in Dallas, Texas, last night (May 9), Beyoncé put her own spin on the song with sultry and soaring vocals which saw the crowd erupting in applause. Watch below.

This isn’t the first time Beyoncé has covered The Purple One. At her tour opener in Miami last month, Queen Bey covered Prince’s “Purple Rain.” She had also previously sang “The Beautiful Ones” at a tour stop in Las Vegas and at Glastonbury in 2011.

Prince died at his home in Minnesota on April 21.
