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:

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