The hits just keep on coming.

Right on the heels of Ed Sheeran’s “Drunk in Love” Beyoncé cover, we can now safely present John Mayer playing “XO” in Australia.

A few days before the performance, Mayer tweeted the following:

“The best thing about Beyoncé? The break in her voice on the first ‘baby, love me lights out’ in XO. Real and raw.”

Mayer is a musician’s musician (Frank Ocean even uses him to play guitar) and a studio rat by all accounts. So when he says something’s real and raw, you know it is.

Check out this incredible cover, and stay tuned for all things Beyoncé. We got you.
