John Mayer Turns Beyonce’s “XO” Into A Stripped-Back Folk Song: Watch His Live Cover

683e7b05dfcbbd10b3b4ead7871934e4 John Mayer Turns Beyonce’s “XO” Into A Stripped Back Folk Song: Watch His Live Cover

It’s time to welcome John Mayer to the ever-expanding Bey Hive. “The best thing about Beyonce? The break in her voice on the first ‘baby, love me lights out’ in XO. Real and raw,” the singer-songwriter raved in a tweet on Saturday (April 12), before unveiling his live cover of the Ryan Tedder-penned hit at a gig in Adelaide, Australia last night.

Katy Perry‘s ex stripped “XO” back to its raw, emotional core — performing the song with only his guitar and harmonica for accompaniment. And it survives the genre switch exceedingly well. Regardless of how you feel about John’s uber-sincere schtick, his folk ballad interpretation reminds you that Bey’s love song has an unusually melancholy underbelly. Watch up top.
