Beyonce paid tribute to Aretha Franklin as her "On The Run II" tour with Jay Z stopped in Aretha's hometown of Detroit. Also, more flicks and a new video that goes behind-the-scenes of Bey's VOGUE September 2018 cover was just released. Get it all inside...

When it comes to legends, Beyonce and Jay Z make sure to pay their respects.



After learning that legendary singer Aretha Franklin is"gravely ill" (who's reportedly battling cancer), Beyonce dedicated last night's show in Aretha's hometown of Detroit to her.

While performing at Detroit's Ford Field, Bey told the crowd:

“This show is dedicated to Aretha Franklin. We love you and thank you.”



The "Summertime" singer paid tribute to the music legend after it was reported the 76-year-old singer had been transported to hospice care at her home in Motor City. According to people in Aretha's camp, it doesn't appear she has much time left.

The Detroit Free Press pointed out that Ford Field is "around the corner from Aretha Franklin Way, the Detroit street ceremonially named last summer for a tearful Franklin.”

DJ Khaled, who performs the opening act, also paid tribute to Aretha during his set, playing a snippet of her iconic cover of Otis Redding's 1965 track "Respect," before encouraging the crowd to make some noise for the singing legend.


He also brought Migos rappers Quavo and Offset out during his set as well.

Speaking of Migos...



Drake was also in the mix. He hit up the "OTRII" tour in Detroit before he hits the stage with Migos for their "Aubrey and the Amigos" tour stop tonight.
