Beyoncé Announces New Album Act II, Shares Two New Songs: Listen

Beyoncé has announced a new album; Act II arrives March 29. She’s also graced us with two new songs: “Texas Hold ’Em” and “16 Carriages.” Listen to those below, and scroll down for Bey’s teaser clip.

During the Super Bowl LVIII game, Beyoncé revealed the news with a video on her Instagram. It looks as though she’s going country for the second act of her Renaissance trilogy, based on the sound of both songs and the footage in the teaser. The announcement video features old-school tunes like Chuck Berry’s “Maybelline,” as well as a dusty scene of men looking up at a massive billboard featuring a scantily-clad Beyoncé and the words “Texas! Hold ’Em.” The moment seems to be a reference to Wim Wenders’ 1984 film Paris, Texas.
