In just a short year after becoming the artist with the most Grammy wins in history, the Houston-born superstar has notched what once may have seemed an even more unattainable record: becoming the first Black woman to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. She’s an icon who continues to break barriers and shatter glass ceilings.

Beyoncé’s new song “Texas Hold ‘Em,” released February 11, debuted at the top of the Hot Country Songs list. What’s more “16 Carriages,” another single which dropped at the same time, from her upcoming album landed at No. 9. The songs debuted at No. 2 and No. 38, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100. Over the course of her solo career, the singer has topped the Hot 100 eight times. Accroding to Billboard, Beyoncé also made history this week as the first woman to have topped both Hot Country Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs lists at the same time.
