New details have emerged about Beyoncé’s upcoming album “Cowboy Carter” following the release of the tracklist. The album will feature Post Malone on the song “Levii’s Jeans,” Miley Cyrus on “II Most Wanted,” and Dolly Parton on an interlude. Beyoncé also covers Parton’s classic song “Jolene” on the album, paying homage to the country music legend. The tracklist also includes a cover of the Beatles’ song “Blackbird,” which Paul McCartney wrote to address racial tensions in the American South.

In addition to Post Malone, Miley Cyrus, and Dolly Parton, “Cowboy Carter” will feature appearances from Willie Nelson, Linda Martell, and hip-hop and Americana singer Shaboozey. This confirms some rumored guest appearances and puts to rest speculation about other artists like Taylor Swift and Travis Scott. The album is the second part of Beyoncé’s three-part project, following the release of two singles in February, “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages,” which featured collaborations with Raphael Saadiq, Robert Randolph, and Rhiannon Giddens.

Beyoncé’s journey to “Cowboy Carter” began five years ago, after a controversial performance at the Country Music Association Awards in 2016. The incident inspired her to explore the genre of country music more deeply, leading to the creation of this new album. In a post on social media, Beyoncé explained that the experience at the CMA Awards prompted her to study the history of country music and its rich musical archive.

The release of “Cowboy Carter” comes after Beyoncé’s successful “Renaissance” era in 2022, which included the surprise drop of two singles during the Super Bowl. The album also includes collaborations with country singer-songwriters Tanner Adell and Willie Jones, adding to the diverse range of talent featured on the record. Beyoncé’s dedication to honoring the roots of country music and paying tribute to legends like Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson shines through in the carefully curated tracklist of “Cowboy Carter.”

Overall, “Cowboy Carter” promises to be a unique and powerful chapter in Beyoncé’s musical journey, blending elements of country, hip-hop, and Americana in a way that showcases her versatility as an artist. The album’s release is highly anticipated by fans and music critics alike, who are eager to hear how Beyoncé continues to push boundaries and explore new sounds in her music. With a stellar lineup of guest artists and a thoughtful approach to storytelling, “Cowboy Carter” is sure to make a significant impact on the music industry and solidify Beyoncé’s status as a groundbreaking artist.
