Beyoncé’s ‘Daddy Lessons’ soars with a 370% surge in streams amid her new country era

Beyoncé’s classic country-infused track, ‘Daddy Lessons,’ has experienced an astounding 370% surge in streams following the revelation of her new venture into the country music genre. This unexpected spike comes after Queen Bey’s stealthy release of two new singles, ‘Texas Hold’ Em’ and ‘16 Carriages,’ during the Super Bowl. These fresh tracks preview the Western vibes that characterize her upcoming album, Act II.

‘Daddy Lessons,’ initially featured on her groundbreaking 2016 album Lemonade, is not the first instance of Beyoncé delving into the world of country music. The song, which garnered attention for its fusion of country and R&B elements, received a remix and a memorable performance at the CMA Awards alongside the Chicks. Despite being nearly eight years old, the song has witnessed a remarkable resurgence, accumulating 160,000 streams on Feb. 12 alone, marking a staggering 370% increase from the previous Monday’s 34,000 streams.


As Beyoncé’s latest singles, ‘Texas Hold’ Em’ and ’16 Carriages,’ make a notable impact on streaming platforms with 4.32 million and 2.66 million U.S. on-demand streams, respectively, on their first full day, fans are left eagerly anticipating the release of Act II on Mar. 29, wondering if it will mirror the distinct country sound of ‘Daddy Lessons.’

Beyoncé joins a select group of artists who have successfully transitioned from other genres to country music, a testament to the genre’s diverse and inclusive nature. Among them was Darius Rucker, known for being the frontman of Hootie and the Blowfish, who successfully moved from pop to modern country. The Bee Gees, initially a Beatlesque act, found success in country after their foray into psychedelic and folk rock. Michael Bolton, The Byrds, Fleetwood Mac, Lionel Richie, and Elle King also found their place in country music after diverse musical journeys.

As Beyoncé continues to captivate audiences with her unexpected yet enthralling country era, the streaming numbers for ‘Daddy Lessons’ serve as a testament to the timeless appeal of her genre-defying music. With the release of Act II on the horizon, the anticipation and excitement among fans are reaching new heights, proving once again that Beyoncé remains an unparalleled force in the ever-evolving landscape of the music industry.
