Beyonce's new Country single breaks records

*(CNN) — Billboard said that Beyoncé's new single “Texas Hold ‘Em” topped its Hot Country Songs list on Tuesday.

Beyoncé's second new country hit, “16 Carriages,” at No. 9.

Beyoncé becomes the first solo woman with no backing performers to have a No. 1 country song, joining Taylor Swift, whose singles “Love Story (Taylor's Version)” and “All Too Well (Taylor's Version)” did so in 2021, according to Billboard.

She is also the first woman to top the Hot Country and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts since 1958. Morgan Wallen, Justin Bieber, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Ray Charles are the only other musicians to top both lists.

After teasing new songs in a Verizon Super Bowl ad and stunning YouTube visualizer videos, Beyoncé released “16 Carriages” and “Texas Hold ‘Em” on Feb. 11.

In the ad, “Can't B Broken,” “Veep” star Tony Hale challenged Beyoncé to break the cellular service company's 5G capabilities, which she did brilliantly.

The celebrity says, "Ok, they ready," at the conclusion. Drop the new music,” after she makes ridiculous attempts to “break” Verizon's network.

The Grammy-winner and Texas native posted a clip of “Texas Hold ‘Em” on her website moments later, and full versions of both songs were released on music streaming platforms along with the announcement that her eighth solo studio album, “Renaissance Act II,” would be released on March 29.

Beyoncé's new cowgirl-inspired dress choices have hinted to her next musical phase, which is thrilling for the music business.

While Beyoncé's country music period may surprise those still dancing and singing to her 2022 disco-centric “Renaissance” album, her Beyhive has learned to expect change and progression from their Queen Bey.
