“Cowboy Carter” marks the second act in a trilogy Beyoncé envisioned during the COVID-19 pandemic, following the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Renaissance, which debuted with 332k in August 2022.

This 27-track odyssey features collaborations with contemporary stars like Miley Cyrus and Post Malone, while legendary figures Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and Linda Martell lend their voices as DJs in this radio-themed collection.

In a heartfelt Instagram statement before the release, Beyoncé shed light on the origins of “Cowboy Carter,” revealing it was a project over five years in the making, fueled by an experience of unwelcome reception earlier in her career.

“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,” she shared. “But, because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of Country music and studied our rich musical archive.”

She further elaborated, “The criticisms I faced when I first entered this genre forced me to propel past the limitations that were put on me,” she continues. “act ii is a result of challenging myself, and taking my time to bend and blend genres together to create this body of work.”
