Beyoncé has stirred some controversy by delivering the second part of her anticipated ‘Renaissance’ trilogy as a country album. As her album Cowboy Carter gears up for release on March 29, it’s been disclosed that the tracklist will feature a Beatles cover, adding fuel to the fire of discussion among critics.

While it was previously announced that the pop icon would cover Dolly Parton’s iconic hit “Jolene” for the record, fans in New Zealand and Australia, where the album has already been released, have uncovered that a track titled “Blackbiird” is actually a rendition of The Beatles’ “Blackbird,” originally penned by Paul McCartney for the band’s eponymous 1968 album, commonly known as the ‘White Album.’

Alongside this unexpected cover, the album boasts collaborations with rapper Post Malone, who earned approval from Ozzy Osbourne, on the track “Levii’s Jeans,” and with Miley Cyrus on “II Most Wanted.”

Last month, Beyoncé made history as the first Black female artist to top the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with her single “Texas Hold ‘Em.”

Expressing her gratitude on social media, she wrote, “I feel honored to be the first Black woman with the number one single on the Hot Country Songs chart. That would not have happened without the outpouring of support from each and every one of you. My hope is that years from now, the mention of an artist’s race, as it relates to releasing genres of music, will be irrelevant.”

Reflecting on her album’s journey, Beyoncé shared, “This album has been over five years in the making. 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.”


“But, stemming from that experience, I delved deeper into the roots of Country music and immersed myself in our diverse musical heritage. It’s rewarding to witness how music has the power to bring together people from all walks of life globally, all the while elevating the voices of those who have devoted themselves to preserving and sharing our musical legacy.”
