John Mayer Covers Beyoncé’s ‘XO’

John Mayer

Turn the lights out. Following Ed Sheeran’s acoustic cover of “Drunk in Love,” John Mayer performed a stripped-down version of Beyoncé’s “XO” during a show in Adelaide, Australia, on Tuesday. The Grammy winner played the guitar and the harmonica while giving Bey’s hit an acoustic makeover.

He also tweeted his praise for Bey. “The best thing about Beyoncé? The break in her voice on the first ‘baby, love me lights out’ in XO. Real and raw,” he said.

Hit the switch on Mayer’s “XO” cover below.

    @Dope Rapper, Don’t try to shade King Bey, hoe.
    This was great though, he did that. You can like them both equally in vastly different ways.

    @MayZiin, First of all, people are entitled to their own opinions. Secondly, Beyonce is not a God. People do not fall on their knees for humans because humans do not have a Heaven or a Hell to put anyone in. Fools like you give sane Beyonce fans a bad name. You’re batshit crazy.

    @Ivan, Well here was my opinion and to push it a lil further, you’re the one implying that Beyoncé is a god there( which reflects your mind honey ).I suggest you to stop hating and encourage you to Buy her Album if it is not already done. xo

    Y’all would say every version is better simply cuz y’all hate Beyonce. Fucking haters y’all know damn well this wasn’t better but, its all good. Bey will still get paid, let this cover make it to radio bey will still cash out.

    Miley Cyrus can do a cover if this song and people would swear it’s better than the original! Only because it’s Bey people wanna throw that shade! This was a really good cover but the original is flawless as well! It’s Bey at her subtle best and it can move you to tears! The song was personally crafted and nurtured for her so it will always hold top spot.
