Weeknd Covered Beyonces Drunk Loveat Lollapalooza
CHICAGO -- Between his mixtape favorites, album cuts and hit singles like 'The Hills' and 'I Can't Feel My Face,' The Weeknd has plenty of songs to choose from for his live shows. And while he did treat fans to all of those during his Lollapalooza set on Friday night, he also came through with a live version of his take on Beyoncé and Jay Z's 'Drunk in Love.'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrhApUKyvGA&t=27m30s
Released in 2014, the track is a bit more explicit than the original -- but that's what we've come to love and expect from the singer. And the live version, not surprisingly, had fans feeling positively overwhelmed.

In addition to 'Drunk in Love' and singles off of his upcoming sophomore project, Abel also gave his army of fans new music while bringing the festival's first day of festivities to a close with the Chicago skyline as his backdrop. Debuted recently at a show in London , the song is being called everything from 'Addition' to 'All I Know' to 'Prisoner' across various pockets of the Internet.
For now, we'll just call it something we need to hear a CDQ version of. Feels like a safe bet we'll be able to once Beaty Behind the Madness drops on Aug. 28.
