We're Loving Rita Ora's Cover of Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love"

Shhh... Don't tell The Beygency.

Imagine "Drunk In Love," stripped down, acoustic, and sans Beyoncé'. It's a scary premise off the bat, but when you swap out Queen Bey's vocals for Rita Ora's mezzo-soprano tones, it's actually quite lovely — just don't tell The Beygency we think so.

Ora hit French television program Le Before du Grand Journal and surprised the crowd with her own rendition of the smash hit complete with her sultry pipes, classical guitars, hand drums, and even some lyric play (if you can catch it!). Watch her performance, below:

I’m the associate web editor at Marie Claire. I love to while away the hours at coffee shops, hunt for vintage clothes, and bask in the rough-and-tumble beauty of NYC. I firmly believe that solitude can be a luxury if you’ve got the right soundtrack—that being the Rolling Stones, of course.
