🤠 Beyoncé really did the most... recruiting a star-studded line-up for guest appearances on her new album 'Cowboy Carter' 🤠

Queen B has entered her country music era with the record - which was released on Friday - and she has rounded up icons Miley Cyrus and Post Malone and country legends Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson to feature.🧡

Being asked to collaborate on a Beyoncé album is the equivalent of knighthood, and the morning after “Cowboy Carter” dropped featured artists Miley Cyrus and Post Malone shared their gratitude at the rare honour.

Cyrus, who duets with Beyoncé on the song “II Most Wanted,” wrote on social media:

😍 “I’ve loved Beyoncé since long before I had the opportunity to meet & work with her." 😍

The Levi's brand has joined the BeeHive along with Post Malone on Beyoncé's album with 'LEVII'S JEANS' duet. 💙

Beyoncé has also recorded a cover of Dolly's classic track 'Jolene' with rewritten lyrics and the album features an interlude by the country legend herself which references both Jolene and Becky - the name of a love rival featured in Beyonce's 'Lemonade' track 'Sorry'.

In the interlude, Dolly says:

"Hey, Miss Honey B, it's Dolly P. You know, that hussy with the good hair you sang about reminded me of someone I knew back when. Except she has flaming locks of auburn hair. Bless her heart. Just a hair of a different colour, but it hurts just the same."

 Willie Nelson features on two tracks - 'Smoke Hour Willie Nelson' and 'Smoke Hour II'.

Beyonce also features Linda Martell - who was the first Black woman to sing at the Grand Ole Opry back in 1969 - as well as Black country artists including Rhiannon Giddens, Tanner Adell, and Willie Jones.

'Cowboy Carter' is the second part of Beyonce's planned 'Renaissance' trilogy – following the 2022 dance record ‘Renaissance’.
