Beyoncé’s ‘Cowboy Carter’ Album Title Receives Mixed Reviews From Fans

Beyoncé got her fans feeling the country spirit on Tuesday (March 12) when she revealed that her upcoming country album will be titled Cowboy Carter.

The superstar’s Parkwood Entertainment company announced the news via social media, two weeks before the album is slated to arrive on March 29. The post also showed an image of an empty saddle with a red, white and blue sash draped across with the album name sewn onto it. However, upon pre-ordering the limited edition drops for the album on Bey’s website, it indicates that the image is not the final cover art.

The second act of her 2022 album Renaissance already has two singles, “16 Carriages” and her Hot 100 chart-topper, “Texas Hold ‘Em.” The latter has notched three weeks at No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, which earlier became Bey’s historic first No. 1 on the ranking; prior to its ascendance, no Black woman, or female known to be biracial, had led the list.

Following the album title reveal, fans took to X (previously known as Twitter) to share their thoughts — which ranged from excitement for the new country era to confusion over the seemingly basic name following an album title like Renaissance. See some of the BeyHive’s reactions below.
