Beyoncé Releases Tracklist to "Cowboy Carter" Album

Beyoncé has unveiled the song lineup for her upcoming album, "Act II: Cowboy Carter," set to drop this Friday.

The Grammy-winning artist teased fans with a preview of the controversial pseudo-country album in her Instagram, revealing a snapshot of what appears to be the album's tracklist. Alongside previously released tunes like "Texas Hold ‘Em" and "16 Carriages," the list features new titles such as "American Requiem," "Blackbird," "Protector," and "My Rose."

Among the standout titles is "The Linda Martell Show," paying homage to the country singer who broke barriers as the first black woman to play the Grand Ole Opry. References to country icons Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson also surface, with tracks like "Dolly P" and "Smoke Hour Willie Nelson."

Parton herself hinted at Beyoncé's cover of her iconic song "Jolene" in an interview earlier this month, expressing excitement over the possibility of the pop star's rendition appearing on her country-themed album.

While the inclusion of "Smoke Hour Willie Nelson" sparks speculation about Nelson's involvement, details surrounding his participation remain unclear.

Despite initially teasing a country-themed project, Beyoncé later clarified that "Act II: Cowboy Carter" isn't strictly a country album but rather a reflection of her diverse musical influences. In a subsequent statement, she emphasized, "This ain't a country album,"
