Pop and R&B superstar Beyoncé has once again made history as the first Black female artist to have a #1 country song with “Texas Hold ‘Em.”

“Texas Hold ‘Em” is featured on Bey’s forthcoming country album, “Renaissance: Act II,” a sequel to her 2022 album “Renaissance.” The release already has two singles out “16 Carriages” and “Texas Hold.”

“Texas Hold ‘Em” drew 19.2 million official streams and 4.8 million in all-format airplay audience and sold 39,000 in the U.S. through February 15, according to Luminate. “16 Carriages” rides in with 10.3 million streams, 90,000 in radio reach and 14,000 sold.

Beyoncé joins Taylor Swift as the only solo women to clinch that achievement with no accompanying artists, Billboard said, and Bey makes history as the first woman to top both Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts.

After the singer dropped the two songs, there was controversy as to how to label them genre-wise. Some country radio stations reportedly didn’t want to stream them, claiming that they were still considered Pop.
