Beyonce Breaks Multiple Streaming Records With Country-Influenced Album 'Cowboy Carter'

The 'Texas Hold 'Em' hitmaker is celebrating as she triumphantly scores the most-streamed album in a day on Spotify and the most-streamed country album by a female artist on Amazon.

AceShowbiz - Beyonce Knowles' eighth studio album, "Cowboy Carter," has broken records on Spotify, becoming the platform's most-streamed album in a single day so far in 2024. Released on March 29, the album is also the first country album to hold this title this year.

"Cowboy Carter" features 27 songs, including collaborations with Dolly Parton, Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Willie Nelson, and more. The album was inspired by Beyonce's Texas roots and features covers of Parton's "Jolene" and The Beatles' "Blackbird."

Within 24 hours of its release, "Cowboy Carter" amassed 76.13 million streams on Spotify, according to fan account Bey Legion. It marks Beyonce's biggest debut of 2024 and the biggest debut by a Black female artist ever. It also places sixth among the highest female Spotify debuts of all time.

Beyonce's previous album, "Renaissance," debuted on Spotify in July 2022 with 43.2 million streams. The success of "Cowboy Carter" was foreshadowed by the popularity of its lead single, "Texas Hold 'Em," which had already been streamed over 200 million times before the album's release.

In an Instagram post, Beyonce shared that she embarked on a deep dive into the history of country music after feeling unwelcome in the genre during her initial attempts to enter it. She credited the criticisms she faced with propelling her to create this album.

"Cowboy Carter" has also broken records on Amazon Music, becoming Beyonce's biggest album debut to date. It garnered more first-day streams on the platform than any of her previous albums and set a record for the most first-day streams for a country album by a female artist.
