LOS ANGELES (NEWSnet/AP) — Beyoncé is the first Black woman to top Billboard's country music chart.

The Grammy-winning singer achieved the feat after her new single “Texas Hold 'Em" reached No. 1 on the country airplay chart this week.

It was released Feb. 11, along with her other single "16 Carriages,” which debuted at No. 9 on the same chart.

Both songs are expected to be featured on Beyoncé's upcoming, country-themed album, which is referred to as “act ii," on March 29. It's a follow-up offering to her 2022 album “Renaissance," also known as as “Act I: Renaissance.”

Beyoncé is also the first woman to claim the top spot on the Hot Country Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts since both began in 1958, according to Billboard.

The only other acts who have topped both are Justin Bieber, Ray Charles and Billy Ray Cyrus.
