Beyoncé: "Cowboy Carter" is already breaking records

Beyoncé (42) has already broken several records with her new album “Cowboy Carter”. Less than 24 hours after its release, Spotify announced that the country album had become the most streamed album on a single day of the year to date, according to The Hollywood Reporter. At the same time, it was the first time that a country album had this title this year.

Beyoncé has also enjoyed success on Amazon Music, where the record achieved more first-day streams worldwide than any of her previous albums and marked the most first-day streams for a country album by a female artist in Amazon Music history. This makes "Cowboy Carter", which is her first work in the country genre, Beyoncé's most successful album debut to date.

It was released on March 29th and contains 27 songs, including collaborations with Dolly Parton (78), Miley Cyrus (31), Post Malone (28) and Willie Nelson (90). Before its release, the single "Texas Hold 'Em" reached number 1 on the US Top 50 charts after being streamed more than 200 million times.

Among other things, Beyoncé presents an idiosyncratic cover version of Dolly Parton's hit "Jolene" - and apparently inspires the country icon. "Wow, I just heard 'Jolene,'" the 78-year-old wrote on her Instagram page. "Beyoncé is giving this girl a little trouble and she deserves it!"

Miley Cyrus also spoke on Instagram about the joint song “II Most Wanted”. "I loved Beyoncé long before I met her and worked with her," she said on the album cover. Their admiration now goes “so much deeper” after working together. "Thank you Beyoncé. You are everything and more. I love you."

Beyoncé, for her part, has expressed her appreciation for black female artists in the country genre. On Friday she sent flowers and cards to K. Michelle, 42, and Mickey Guyton, 40, to recognize them for their achievements. "Thank you for opening doors for me, Queen. Keep shining. Love and respect, Beyoncé," she wrote to Guyton, as she revealed on Instagram. Guyton was the first Black female solo artist to be nominated for a Grammy in a country category for her single "Black Like Me" in 2021.
