Beyoncé Makes Her Country Music Debut with Two New Singles

Beyoncé is back with two brand new singles and not in the way any of us were expecting.

Queen Bey announced she would be making the jump to country music when she dropped ‘TEXAS HOLD ‘EM’ and ‘16 CARRIAGES’ during the Super Bowl. Ultimately, it gave fans a shock to hear she would be releasing the second album in the Renaissance Trilogy, as well as an entire genre shift.

TEXAS HOLD ‘EM’ is a callback to her roots in Houston, Texas. Additionally, the bouncier track stands as a love letter to where she was raised and the life that waits for her there. The song makes you want to grab your cowboy boots and get whisked away. As well as proving her surprising connection to country music, folk musician, Rhiannon Giddens is featured as the banjo player.

Equally helping Knowles-Carter make her mark on the country world, ’16 CARRIAGES’ sees a different side to the upcoming album. Furthering the story of her roots in Texas, the transcending ballad carries the narrative of losing your faith and seeing the dreams you have fade away. It pairs a whimsy swelling guitar with her passionate rambling. This paints a picture of the things she has taken with her since she left. While Beyoncé has always been candid about her life in her music, this resembles more of a classic country tale.

Altogether, this genre jump is something that the celebrated artist has not yet experimented with. However, it seems that she may be working on tackling it with her own added flare and style. Equally, as with all of Beyoncé’s work, it is impossible to not want to see what she has coming next. The upcoming LP is looking to prove this more than ever.
