Beyoncé’s ‘Cowboy Carter’ Is Spotify’s Most-Streamed Album in One Day in 2024

Beyoncé’s newest album Cowboy Carter is already setting records.

Not even 24 hours after its release, Spotify revealed that the Grammy-winning artist’s country album became its most-streamed album in a single day in 2024 so far. The music giant also noted that it was the first time a country album had held that title this year.

Prior to the release of Cowboy Carter on Friday, Beyoncé’s single “Texas Hold ‘Em” peaked at No. 1 on the U.S. Top 50 chart after being streamed more than 200 million times.

The country album — and the second installment in a potential trilogy project following 2022’s Renaissance — features a 27-song tracklist, including collaborations with Dolly Parton, Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Willie Nelson and more.

Since being dropped, fans have been flooding social media with their reactions to the highly-anticipated project that marks Beyoncé’s first studio album in the genre. It’s also a notably special project for the singer, as she has previously expressed feeling not “welcomed” in country space during past attempts to enter the genre.

“This genre forced me to propel past the limitations that were put on me,” she wrote on Instagram earlier this month. “Act ii is a result of challenging myself, and taking my time to bend and blend genres together to create this body of work.”

Earlier Friday, it was also announced that Cowboy Carter broke records on Amazon Music — making it Beyoncé’s biggest album debut to date. The album scored more first-day streams on Amazon Music globally than any of her previous albums, as well as marked the most first-day streams for a country album by a female artist in the history of Amazon Music.

Cowboy Carter, which features tracks “Jolene,” “II Most Wanted,” “Bodyguard,” “Sweet Honey Buckin’” and more, is currently streaming across music platforms.
