Beyoncé: Cowboy Carter tops album sales in the United States one week after its release

American music star Beyoncé's latest album, Cowboy Carter, topped the country album sales chart, a first for a black artist. According to the Billboard website, which is due to publish its detailed ranking this Monday, April 8, this is the eighth album in Beyoncé's career to reach first place in sales.

With the equivalent of 407,000 copies sold in the week ending April 4, Cowboy Carter achieves the best performance of 2024, and the best since the 1989 release (Taylor's Version) of another mega star, Taylor Swift, with 1, 6 million albums sold in the ranking of November 11, 2023.

Announced on February 11 in the middle of the Super Bowl, the final of the American football championship, with the release of the singles Texas Hold 'Em, punctuated by the sound of the banjo and 16 Carriages, the album Cowboy Carter is a powerful tribute to the world star of pop and R

Beyoncé covers, among others, the classic Jolene by absolute country star Dolly Parton as well as Blackbird by the Beatles, a song composed by Paul McCartney in the 1960s about nine black teenagers who became icons of the civil rights movement by integrating a high school reserved for white students, during the era of segregation in the southern United States. The Beatles star applauded the cover, calling it "a beautiful version that reinforces the civil rights message that inspired me to write this song."
