Country Music’s New Queen – Beyoncé’s Hit Track Claims No. 1 Spot on Hot Country Songs

Beyoncé has once again etched her name in history, becoming the first Black woman to top the Hot Country Songs chart with her latest track, Texas Hold ‘Em.

The achievement marks a significant milestone in her illustrious career and underscores her versatility as an artist, breaking barriers within the country music genre.

Warm Welcome from Country Music Community:

The 42-year-old superstar received accolades from notable figures in the country music community, including Maren Morris and Lainey Wilson, who expressed their appreciation for Beyoncé’s contributions to the genre.

The warm reception showcases the evolving landscape of country music and the acceptance of diverse artists.

Impactful Chart Performance:

Released on February 11, Texas Hold ‘Em swiftly claimed the top spot on the Hot Country Songs chart, displacing Zach Bryan and Kacey Musgraves’ duet, I Remember Everything, after its 20-week reign.

Beyoncé’s other country track, 16 Carriages, debuted at number 9, further demonstrating her impact on the country music scene.

Upcoming Country Album:

Beyoncé’s success with Texas Hold ‘Em and 16 Carriages serves as a prelude to her upcoming country album, Act II, scheduled for release on March 29.

The album, following her 2022 Renaissance LP, is highly anticipated and expected to make waves across music charts.

Billboard Statistics:

According to Billboard, Texas Hold ‘Em garnered 19.2 million official streams, 4.8 million in all-format airplay audience, and sold 39,000 copies in the U.S. through February 15.

Meanwhile, 16 Carriages achieved 10.3 million streams, 90,000 in radio reach, and 14,000 in sales.

Beyoncé’s dual success on both Hot Country Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs is a rare accomplishment.

Fan-Driven Radio Play:

Beyoncé’s fans demonstrated their dedication by influencing a country music radio station, KYKC, to play Texas Hold ‘Em.

After initially refusing the request, the station eventually received copies of the songs and started including Texas Hold ‘Em in its rotation.


Beyoncé’s groundbreaking achievement on the Hot Country Songs chart reflects the changing landscape of music genres and the impact of artists transcending traditional boundaries.

As she ventures into country music with Act II, Beyoncé continues to redefine her artistic repertoire, leaving an indelible mark on the industry.

The incident with KYKC underscores the ongoing conversation about inclusivity within the country music genre.
