Beyoncé’s “Act II: Cowboy Carter” album is a little bit country and definitely rocking and rolling.

Both Spotify and Amazon Music have announced on social media that the recent drop of her eighth studio album has been highly successful.

Likewise, Amazon Music posted a photo of Queen Bey stating that “Cowboy Carter marks Beyoncé’s biggest album debut” on the platform “with the most first-day global streams of all of her albums, and the most first-day streams for a country album by a female artist.”
