Beyonce has reached the top of the Global Spotify Charts for the first time in her illustrious career. Her newest single, "Texas Hold ‘Em," notched her the No. 1 placement with the chart's latest edition. She dropped the song back on February 11, during the Super Bowl. It serves as a lead single to her upcoming eighth studio album, Act II. It also marks the start of her highly-anticipated venture into country music.

In addition to dominating the Global Spotify Charts, Beyonce also became the first Black woman with a number-one country song in history after debuting atop Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart. On the Billboard Global 200, it debuted at number four. She dropped the song alongside another single, "16 Carriages," which peaked at number nine on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
