Beyoncé makes history on the country music chart

# Beyoncé has made history by becoming the first black woman to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart after her track Texas Hold ‘Em debuted at number one. Her other new country song 16 Carriages is at number nine on the chart. Beyoncé is also the first woman to have topped both the Hot Country and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts since the lists began in 1958. Both singles will appear on the second instalment of her Renaissance trilogy, set for release on the 29th of next month.
