Beyoncé’s entry album into the country music genre, Cowboy Carter, was released on March 29, and it’s already shattering records on streaming platforms.

“This is also the first time a country album holds the title this year,” Spotify shared on Instagram.

Amazon Music also said in a statement posted on Instagram, “Cowboy Carter marks Beyoncé’s biggest album debut” on the platform “with the most first-day global streams of all of her albums, and the most first-day streams for a country album by a female artist.”

Cowboy Carter is Beyoncé’s eighth studio album. It features collaborations with Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Rhiannon Giddens, Stevie Wonder, Nile Rodgers, Raye, Ryan Beatty, and Jon Batiste. The album also pays homage to Dolly Parton with a cover of “Jolene,” Linda Martell, and Willie Nelson.

Beyoncé previously opened up about the inspiration for making this album, a production she said was 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,” she shared in an Instagram post recently. “Because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of country music and studied our rich musical archive.”

She continued, “It feels good to see how music can unite so many people around the world, while also amplifying the voices of some of the people who have dedicated so much of their lives educating on our musical history.”
