Beyonce’s “Cowboy Carter” Headed For No. 1 Debut: First Week Sales Projections

Beyonce‘s new album, Cowboy Carter, is expected to move 350k copies in its first week according to a new report from Hits Daily Double. Additionally, the project already amassed 76 million streams in its first day available on Spotify. The figure is likely enough for it to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Beyonce dropped Cowboy Carter on Friday after promoting it with two singles back in February, “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages.” Cowboy Carter is the second in a trilogy of albums Beyonce began working on during the COVID-19 pandemic. She first released Renaissance back in August 2022. At that time, it debuted with 332k sales. The new 27-track effort features collaborations with a number of artists including Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Rhiannon Giddens, Stevie Wonder, Nile Rodgers, Raye, and Jon Batiste. Country legends Dolly Parton, Linda Martell, and Willie Nelson also serve as DJs.
