Beyoncé’s country single “Texas Hold ‘Em” has made a significant impact, reaching No. 1 on both the U.S. and U.K. charts. This achievement marks the first time since 2003 that Beyoncé has had a simultaneous chart-topper on both sides of the Atlantic.

“Texas Hold ‘Em” is Beyoncé’s ninth No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, making her the first Black woman to achieve this milestone. Additionally, it became her first No. 1 hit in the U.K. since her 2010 duet with Lady Gaga, “Telephone.”

The buzz surrounding Beyoncé’s venture into country music likely contributed to the song’s success, with even country legend Dolly Parton expressing excitement about Beyoncé’s country album.

Despite initial reluctance from some country radio stations, “Texas Hold ‘Em” has gained traction across various platforms and has significantly impacted Beyoncé’s chart legacy. The song has also placed her on Billboard’s list of top 10 artists with the longest spans between first and most recent No. 1 hits.

“Texas Hold ‘Em” has solidified Beyoncé’s status as one of the most successful artists, joining Mariah Carey as the only artists to have hit the top of the Hot 100 in four distinct decades.

The song has also contributed to Beyoncé’s impressive total of 45 weeks spent at the top of the charts, placing her among the top artists in this regard.
