Watch Christine and the Queens cover Beyonce during BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge session

The French artist also performed her break-out single 'Tilted'

Christine and the Queens have covered Beyoncé’s ‘Sorry’ for the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.

The French songwriter, who has found success outside of her native France in the past year with her 2014 album ‘Chaleur Humaine’, was appearing as a guest on the radio station’s regular live session programme, where she also performed her breakthrough hit single ‘Tilted’ along with two backing dancers.

Christine – real name Héloïse Letissier – and her three-piece band then launched into a cover of ‘Sorry’, which appeared on Beyoncé’s April-released ‘Lemonade’ album. The songwriter also added some extra French lyrics as part of the cover.
