The Best Beyonce Covers

by Madeleine Borgersen

I love a good cover. Just ask my Mumma, she’ll tell you. She’ll also give you a Gin if you ask nicely – win, win! Here are my top Beyonce covers of all time!

The Best Beyonce Covers

E! Online

Well maybe not all time, but they’re definitely the best Beyonce covers that I’ve heard recently.

Drunk in Love – Maria Zouroudis

Such a beautiful voice. Love this acoustic, stripped back version of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s classic. Surboard. Surfboard.

XO – John Mayer

Ever since I heard him cover Free Fallin’ I’ve loved a bit of Mayer. He does total justice to Beyonce’s other self-titled album highlight, XO.

Halo – Ane Brun, Linnea Olsson

I was fortunate enough to see Queen B at her world tour last year and one of the highlights was definitely hearing her open a Whitney classic (we all know I’m a Whitney fan!) I Will Always Love You and bring it into her own hit single Halo. This one’s nearly as good. Nearly. A gorgeous folky voice. Love it!

Irreplaceable – Sleigh Bells

Beautifully whispey. One of Beyonce’s best songs in my opinion. They do a good job, not as good as the Queen but better than me at 7.42am in a 37 degree shower with shampoo in my hair.

Drunk in Love – Angel Haze

I just love that this one is a bit different. Also nothing beats the line;

Fill the tub up half way then ride it with my skateboard. Surfboard. Tom Ford.

Sorry Beyonce, I think you two need to get together and re-write the original to fit this line in.

XO – Nikki Yanofsky

Best vocals hands down goes to Nikki Yanofsky. Damn gurl! I actually prefer this to the original. There, I said it!
