Rita Ora

Cigars on ice. Rita Ora paid homage to her friend and idol Beyoncé with a cover of “Drunk in Love” during BBC Radio 1′s Big Weekend in Glasgow on Saturday. Rocking colorful braids and a jumpsuit from her adidas collection, the blonde Brit performed her version of Bey’s hit as the audience sang and snapped along.

She also covered Coldplay’s “Magic” and performed new material off her upcoming sophomore album including “Get a Little Closer,” “Touch the Sky,” and “I Will Never Let You Down.”

In addition to Rita, her boyfriend Calvin Harris, Pharrell, and Katy Perry shared the bill at the weekend festival.

Check out her cover and full set below.

    this song is really sexy very sensual and “suave” and made it aggressive which doesn’t work at all and she sings the hook for like a whole minute before she starts singing
    Aint no bitches can sing a Bey song
