Beyoncé opens up about 'Cowboy Carter's' immense success

Beyoncé has broken her silence on the triumph of her country album, Cowboy Carter, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

She credited the success of the Black country music stars featured on the record as a driving force behind her continued creativity, stating that their achievements motivated her to keep producing music.

“When you are breaking down barriers, not everyone is ready and open for a shift. But when I see Shaboozey tearing the charts up and all the beautiful female country singers flying to new heights, inspiring the world, that is exactly what motivates me,” she said in a statement.

Beyoncé, who provided singers like Shaboozey, Tierra Kennedy, and Brittney Spencer a taste of stardom, continued by saying that she doesn't really care about her work anymore and would rather see the next generation of musicians succeed.

“There was a time in my life when charts and sales excited and motivated me. Once you have challenged yourself and poured every ounce of your life, your pain, your growth and your dreams into your art, it’s impossible to go backward,” she stated.

Nevertheless, the Texas Hold'em singer concluded that she has been “very grateful and humbled for the extraordinary success of the new album.”
