Magic Johnson Posts Heartfelt Celebration of ‘Living Icon’ Beyoncé’s ‘Cowboy Carter’

Magic Johnson continues to be a loyal member of the BeyHive.

The former basketball superstar took to Instagram on Friday (March 29) to celebrate the release of Beyoncé’s newest album, Cowboy Carter. “Beyoncé – It’s only fitting that I recognize a living icon as the world tunes in to listen to your newest album, ‘Cowboy Carter,’ which just dropped today,” Johnson wrote alongside a throwback photo of himself smiling alongside the “Texas Hold ‘Em” singer. “You are truly a multifaceted force, with dominating presences as a singer, songwriter, director, actress, record producer, and entrepreneur! With over 160 million records sold, countless awards won (including a historical 32 Grammys), featured roles in eight movies, two fashion lines, and now a new hair care line..it’s impossible to argue that your influence on culture is irreplaceable.”

He continued, “You are women’s history! Just like I say Michael Jackson is the greatest male entertainer of all time, you are the greatest female entertainer of all time. I’m looking forward to seeing how you bring more representation into the country genre and continue to use your platform to uplift and amplify the Black voice.”

Upon its release, Cowboy Carter became Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day in 2024, the streaming service announced last week. This is the first time a country album holds the title this year. Before the album’s release, lead single “Texas Hold ‘Em” was streamed over 200 million times. The album also marks the most first-day streams for a country album by a female artist in the history of Amazon Music.
