Beyoncé officially entered into her country era with the announcement of her upcoming album, Renaissance: Act II at the 2024 Super Bowl.
As reported by PEOPLE, the 42-year-old pop icon, unveiled her new album through an ad that aired during Super Bowl LVIII.
She also proceeded to surprise everyone by dropping two tracks; country-inspired songs titled Texas Hold 'Em and 16 Carriages, on Sunday.
This announcement comes exactly one week after Beyoncé fueled speculations of new music with her choice of outfit at the 2024 Grammys.
Last Sunday, at the 66th annual Grammy Awards, held at Los Angeles' Crypto.com Arena, the Single Ladies hitmaker attended the award ceremony with her husband JAY-Z, who was honored with the Dr. Dre global impact award that night.
She opted to wear a head-to-toe western-influenced look and rocked a custom Louis Vuitton leather studded skirt suit, nude tights, jewelry by Cartier rings and a Stetson cowboy hat.
Many fans contemplated that her display of a cowboycore at the Grammys indicated she might just be launching country-inspired music for the future.
This theory was confirmed on Sunday when she announced she was releasing a new musical album, along with sharing its teaser on social media.
Beyoncé announced Act II of her album Renaissance which is set for release on March 29, 2024 and offered glimpses of the star stepping into her country era.
After the album’s exciting announcement, featuring rustic, roots-heavy beats, Beyoncé released two singles, Texas Hold 'Em and 16 Carriages, she further illustrated her new country sound.
