Beyoncé’s New Album Is Called Cowboy Carter

On Super Bowl Sunday, Beyoncé announced her new album and shared the new songs “16 Carriages” and “Texas Hold ’Em.” Upon announcement, she called the album Act II, and she has now revealed the country album’s official title: Cowboy Carter.

Beyoncé has billed her 2022 album as Act I: Renaissance. And, ahead of the LP’s release, she told fans of a “three act project” that she “recorded over three years during the pandemic.” Cowboy Carter, of course, is the project’s second act.

Cowboy Carter is out March 29. With “Texas Hold ’Em,” Beyoncé made history as the first Black woman ever to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The song also reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Beyoncé’s ninth chart-topper and first since “Break My Soul.”
