Beyoncé Becomes First Black Woman to Debut at #1 on Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart

Beyoncé dominates the Billboard charts with her latest singles, “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” and “16 CARRIAGES,” marking significant milestones in her illustrious career.

“TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” makes a formidable entrance at #2 on the Hot 100, securing its position as Beyoncé’s 22nd top 10 hit. Simultaneously, “16 CARRIAGES” lands at #38, further solidifying her chart-topping prowess.

Beyoncé’s digital supremacy is evident as “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” claims the top spot on the Digital Song Sales chart, selling nearly 40,000 copies. Impressively, this achievement marks her 12th #1 hit, while “16 CARRIAGES” secures the #2 spot with nearly 15,000 copies sold.

What sets this week apart is Beyoncé’s unprecedented feat of occupying both the #1 and #2 positions on the Digital Song Sales chart simultaneously, a historic first in her illustrious career.

Not stopping there, “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” reaches new heights as it debuts at #1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, marking Beyoncé’s inaugural #1 hit in the genre. In doing so, she shatters barriers, becoming the first black female artist to debut at the summit of the Hot Country Songs chart.

This accomplishment cements Beyoncé’s status as a versatile artist, with a remarkable range that spans multiple genres. Notably, Beyoncé now shares company with Taylor Swift as the only women in history to debut at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with solo songs.

With seven #1 hits across Billboard’s multimetric songs charts as a soloist, including Hot 100, Hot Country Songs, Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Hot Gospel Songs, Hot Latin Songs, Hot R&B Songs, and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Beyoncé continues to redefine the boundaries of her influence and legacy in the music industry.

Queen Bey’s dual debuts showcase not only her enduring talent but also her ability to transcend genres, leaving an indelible mark on the music landscape.
