Christine and the Queens tackled Beyonce’s hit “Sorry” in BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and proved that it’s actually possible to do a great cover of a Beyoncé song.
In what’s a huge feat for any musician, French artist Héloïse Letissier, known by the stage name Christine and the Queens took on the challenge of covering Beyonce’s popular song “Sorry”. You may remember the song that brought us classic lyrics such as “Tell ’em boy bye” and “Stop interrupting my grinding” that was released on Beyoncé’s Lemonade earlier this year. Not an easy song to cover, but Christine and the Queens was up to the challenge, taking the perfect route for covering a popular song — making it sound nothing like the original.
Adding in some synth, French, and her signature spastic dance moves, Christine managed to make a completely unique version of “Sorry”. Sporting a familiar feel punched up with a few new additions, it’s hard to simply sit through this cover without tapping your foot or just flat out breaking into dance.
Watch it here:
Christine and the Queens also rocked her own hit “Tilted” in BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge bringing in some choreographed dance moves and her own personal brand of energy. Couldn’t you just listen to her rap in French all day?
In an interview with The Guardian, Letissier described her alter ego Christine as “a young boy dreaming of being Beyoncé”. Christine, you just took one giant step towards accomplishing that dream.
