The songwriter has tackled a legendary Beyoncé song, check it out below...

John Mayer has shared a cover he recorded of the Beyoncé track 'XO' online.

The singer’s acoustic version of the hit song was uploaded to Soundcloud on Thursday (May 22).

Having performed the song at a live show in Adelaide, Australia, Mayer then released the track on iTunes this week.

It’s no secret that John’s a fan of Queen Bey’s work, having tweeted in April: "The best thing about Beyoncé? The break in her voice on the first 'baby, love me lights out' in XO. Real and raw."

He may even get to share the track with Beyoncé’s hubby Jay Z, as he’s headlining part of the Made In America festival in August.
