In what might be the most epic demonstration of real recognize real, Beyoncé paid tribute to late musical icon Prince with a gorgeous cover of his 1984 hit “The Beautiful Ones” during a concert in Dallas, Texas on Monday.

Beyoncé had previously covered the song during performances in 2009 and 2011, but this is the first time she’s performed the track on her current tour.
