Beyoncé just made history *again* with her country song

Beyonce's "Texas Hold'em" Makes History Again. The country song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on February 26, making Beyoncé the first black woman to top the chart with a country song.

The singer debuted the country song along with "16 Carriages" during Super Bowl 2024 weekend. This is Bey's ninth No. 1 hit on the Hot 100 as a solo artist, and her 13th. "Texas Hold 'Em" topped the charts with 29 million plays and 29,000 downloads in its second week. At the same time, "Sixteen Carriages" also performed well, ranking highest at No. 38.

"Beyhive" comes quickly to celebrate the singer's latest milestone, less than a week after she became the first Black female artist to top Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.

"She still got her first after 27 years in her career," one fan wrote on X (formerly Twitter). "Beyoncé keeps making history. Congratulations to the most amazing talent of our time," another commented.

Full album coming soon

"Texas Hold 'Em" and "16 Carriages" are the first two cuts from Bey's upcoming country album, due out March 29. Fans have long speculated that a country album was in the works, with the Grammy winner previously confirming that her 2022 album Renaissance would be the first part of a "three-act project."

Beyoncé's foray into the genre sparked a backlash against Oklahoma country radio station KYKC, with fans accusing the station of refusing to play "Texas Hold 'Em" after it was first released. However, the station later explained in a statement that they "actually didn't have" the song at the time, adding, "Now we do. Love it."

Country music star Dolly Parton recently expressed interest in a duet with Beyoncé and gave the singer her seal of approval. Congratulating Bey on her success on the country charts, Parton wrote on Instagram, "I'm a huge fan of Beyoncé and so excited for her to make a country album. Congratulations on your Billboard Hot Country Singles Number one. Can’t wait to hear the full album! Love you, Dolly.”
