Queen Charlotte has been wowing audiences since it landed on Netflix on May 4, and just like its Bridgerton predecessor it features orchestral covers of some of your favourite pop songs, from Beyoncé to Alicia Keys!

The fictionalised historical drama follows Queen Charlotte's rise to prominence after marrying King George, showing audiences how she came to be the formidable woman we know and love from the first two series.

When you weren't focused on the Regency-era glitz and glamour, the songs featured in Queen Charlotte may have commanded your attention (we can't blame you)!

There are six reworked pop song covers throughout the limited series, one for each episode, and every single one pays homage to Black female artists.

Beyoncé's work features in Queen Charlotte, not once, not twice, but three times! Her bops such as 'Halo', ''Déjà Vu' and 'Run the World' were all given a classical edge for the show.

Netflix used orchestral renditions by Vitamin String Quartet, Audiostation, and the duo Brian Chan and Caleb Chan for the pop music moments.

Alicia Keys, SZA and Whitney Houston also had their hits receive the Bridgerton treatment, the likes of 'If I Ain’t Got You', 'Nobody Gets Me' and 'I Will Always Love You' all worked perfectly in the world of the ton!
