Watch: Haim covers Beyonce’s “XO”

Haim, the band of sisters hailing from Los Angeles and signed the Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint, has shared a cover of Beyonce’s hit, “XO.” Performed on the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, the siblings cover the fan favorite from Beyonce’s self-titled album, changing the pop hit into a synth-rock ballad.

The sisters Haim are having one of those years that would make people pinch themselves in the morning to make sure it's all real. The ladies released their debut album, "Days Are Gone," at the end of September this year and have been touring with the likes of Vampire Weekend and Phoenix.
