Katy Perry stopped by BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge on March 19 and on top of performing her hits from her "Teenage Dream" album like "Firework," she also showed off her rapping skills by covering a Jay-Z and Kanye West song.

The song, called "[Expletive] in Paris," was featured on their 2011 collaborative album titled "Watch the Throne."

"This is about to get real embarrassing," Perry says to the crowd before the performance, which can be seen below. The singer dons a Yankee baseball cap in a nod to Jay-Z who is often seen with it on.

Perry substitutes many expletives on the track with more radio friendly words and the music is re-arranged with a slower tempo played by a live band.

The singer collaborated with Kanye West in the past on her song "E.T." A re-release of Perry's "Teenage Dream" album titled "Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection" will hit stores on March 26. The re-release includes three remixes of original tracks and three new tracks including the song "Part of Me," which Perry debuted during her performance at the Grammy's on February 12.

Check out Perry's performance of "[Expletives] in Paris" below.
