Beyoncé’s ‘Cowboy Carter’ Shattering Records on Streaming Platforms

Cowboy Carter, Beyoncé’s debut album in the country music genre, was released on March 29 and is already breaking records on streaming services.

Spotify reported that the “Texas Hold ‘Em” singer’s new album became the “most-streamed album in a single day in 2024 so far” after it was released.

Spotify posted on Instagram, saying, “This is also the first time a country album holds the title this year.”

Additionally, Cowboy Carter “marks Beyoncé’s biggest album debut” on Amazon Music, “with the most first-day global streams of all her albums, and the most first-day streams for a country album by a female artist,” according to a statement the streaming service shared on Instagram.

Beyoncé released Cowboy Carter, her ninth studio album. Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Rhiannon Giddens, Stevie Wonder, Nile Rodgers, Raye, Ryan Beatty, and Jon Batiste are among the artists with whom she collaborated. Along with a cover of “Jolene,” Linda Martell, and Willie Nelson, the album honors Dolly Parton.

Beyoncé previously shared her motivation for this album, whose production she said took years to complete.

She recently wrote on Instagram, “It was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed…and it was very clear that I wasn’t.” “Because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of country music and studied our rich musical archive.”

“It feels good to see how music can bring people together from all over the world and elevate the voices of some of the individuals who have devoted a great deal of their lives to teaching about our musical history,” the Beyoncé went on.
