Beyoncé put her own spin on country music with her new album Cowboy Carter, and she didn’t do it all alone. Queen B shared the spotlight with many amazing artists and gave us several collaborations that knocked us off our feet, starting with these five.

“Blackbird” Cover

Beyoncé’s cover of The Beatles classic “Blackbird” is one for the books and it sees her joining forces with some of country’s leading Black female artists, including Brittney Spencer, Reyna Roberts, Tanner Adell, and Tiera Kennedy.

“Jolene” Cover

Beyoncé took inspiration from the country legend Dolly Parton and covered her timeless hit “Jolene” on Cowboy Carter. The defiant new version sees her rewriting its lyrics to reflect her own journey.

In addition to covering “Jolene”, Beyoncé also collaborated with Parton on two other songs. “Tyrant” emerged as our favorite, and its perfect mix of R&B and country sound makes it one of the album’s catchiest bops.

“II Most Wanted” ft. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé were both very open about their love for country long before fully embracing this genre, and their collaboration “II Most Wanted” is everything we’ve hoped for—and more!

“Levii’s Jeans” ft. Post Malone

Post Malone is one of the most unlikely collaborators featured on Cowboy Carter, but he was the perfect choice for “Levii’s Jeans”, which added a dash of playfulness to this album.
