Prince performing “Purple Rain” with Beyoncé at the 2004 Grammys

Just days after releasing her new album LEMONADE, Beyoncé kicked off her Formation world tour at Miami’s Marlins Park last night. As well as performing songs off her latest LP for the first time, Mrs. Carter couldn’t let the show pass without paying tribute to the late, great Prince, who tragically passed away last week. Bey, who performed with Prince at the 2004 Grammys, lead a “Purple Rain” sing-along with the crowd in front of a huge purple screen. She also performed her cover of “Nasty Girl” by Vanity 6, the female group assembled by Prince in the early ’80s.
