During the Atlanta stop on her “Formation World Tour,” Beyonce paid tribute to an Atlanta rapper who recently died.

Less than a week after rapper Shawty Lo was killed in a fiery car accident, Beyonce mixed the rapper’s single “Dey Know” with her single “Diva” during a dance break.

The singer is known for a portion of the show in which she does the same choreography to different songs such as Migos’ “Cut It” or DJ Khaled’s “I Got the Keys,” but the Shawty Lo tribute was a sweet way to pay homage to the musician in his hometown.

Beyonce ended the short tribute by blowing a kiss toward the sky.



Earlier in the show, DJ Khaled’s set featured a series of Atlanta artists, including Usher, Young Thug and Migos, but rapper Young Jeezy revisiting his verse on the “Dey Know” remix stood out as a highlight.

The concert marked Beyonce’s second time on the Georgia Dome stage in less than six months.
