Beyoncé’s new country-inspired album, “Cowboy Carter” has broke the Spotify record for the most-streamed album in a single day in 2024 so far, with Spotify posting on its social media accounts: “This is also the first time a country album holds the title this year.” The 27-track album was released last Friday.

The lead single off Cowboy Carter, “Texas Hold ‘Em,” was streamed on the platform over 200 million times, sending it to the top spot on the US Top 50 chart. According to Billboard, that achievement makes Beyoncé the first woman – and first Black woman – to have topped both the Hot Country Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs since the lists began in 1958.

Cowboy Carter features a host of Black country musicians, as well as appearances from the legendary Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton, as well as collabs with Post Malone and Miley Cyrus. In addition, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s 6-year-old daughter, Rumi, has a guest spot on the track, “Protector.”
