MANILA, Philippines – Singer-songwriter John Mayer released his version of Beyonce’s hit “XO.”

The song uploaded on Soundcloud features the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar accompanied by the piano and harmonica in the background.

Mayer originally performed the live version of the track last month while on tour in Adelaide, Australia. Before singing it on the tour, Mayer took to Twitter to express his admiration for Beyonce, and what he loves about the song.

His version immediately got raves, with some even saying it was better than Beyonce’s. 


Mayer recently wrapped up the international tour for his last album Paradise Valley. Rolling Stone reported that he is one of the singers who will perform at the Budweiser Made in America festival for the Los Angeles edition. The festival, which will take place during Labor Day Weekend, is scheduled in August. –
