Beyonce Performs New Song ‘XO’ for First Time Live in Concert: Watch


The surprises keep coming from Beyonce!

The same day she dropped her self-titled album out of thin air, Queen Bey performed one of its tracks, “XO,” live for the first time that night during her concert at Chicago’s United Center.

“I’m gonna sing this song, which is a brand new song,” she told the crowd. “It hasn’t even been out for 24 hours. I want to sing this to y’all because it was written for y’all.”

Although Beyonce’s new album came with no notice and zero promotion, it has managed to make it straight to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The magazine also estimates that the 14-song collection — which is only available for download on iTunes as an entire album — was set to sell 600,000 copies by Sunday night.
