Magical Recording of Beyoncé Doing Prince

And here is Beyoncé covering Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones” (and Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire” (whatever)) this weekend. She’s been doing this on tour for a bit (and covering Prince for a couple of years, and of course she performed “Purple Rain” with him in 2004) but this is the first really stellar recording of this; I would describe this as LIFE-CHANGING. Stop work, put your headphones on, etc. I do wish she hadn’t switched the genders in the lyrics though. (via, previously)
