Some fans say her Grammy night look was a tip of the hat to what was coming, now it’s believed that the entirety of Act II will be a country project. This isn’t the first time Queen Bey has tapped into her Texas roots — she also explored the genre on her song “Daddy Lessons” on the Lemonade album.
Now the singer has confirmed she is indeed continuing to push the yeehaw agenda.
She took to social media to reveal her two new singles “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “Sixteen Carriages” are available now.
Definitely not your average cowgirl next door, right?
