Watch Haim Cover Beyonce’s “XO”

Haim hopped across the pond and stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge for a cover of Beyonce‘s soaring “XO.” The sister trio stripped the song to its bare elements, making it feel more like an adult contemporary ballad.

Bassist Este Haim takes the lead on vocals here, while Danielle handles the drums, so unlike their magnetic “If I Could Change Your Mind” video, the California girls didn’t bust out any dance moves for this. Still, it’s another solid cover in the versatile band’s catalog. Check it out up top.
