Prince fans got a special treat during a Texas stop on Beyoncé’s ongoing Formation World Tour: The Lemonade singer brought back her cover of Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones,” which she previously performed at a few 2011 shows, to honor the late star on a stage bathed in purple lights.

This marks Beyoncé’s first time singing the 1984 track on this tour, although her tour’s been honoring Prince — who died April 21 at the age of 57 — by playing “Purple Rain” from the speakers as an interlude between “1+1” and “Crazy in Love.”

Watch her performance below.
