Beyonce Earns First No. 1 On U.K. Singles Chart In 14 Years With ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’

Beyonce has returned to No. 1 on the UK Official Singles Chart for the first time in 14 years.

“Texas Hold ‘Em,” one of two new tracks from her upcoming album Act II, rose to the top of the latest chart dated February 23.

The country-tinged song climbed eight places after making its debut on the chart at No. 9 the previous week.

“Texas Hold ‘Em” becomes Bey’s sixth U.K. No. 1 single. She last topped the chart in March 2010 on Lady Gaga‘s “Telephone.” Prior to that, her last solo No. 1 came in the form of 2008’s “If I Were A Boy.”

“Texas Hold ‘Em” also becomes the first country-influenced song to hit No. 1 in the U.K. since Lil Nas X‘s “Old Town Road” in 2019.

Meanwhile, breakthrough sensation Benson Boone soars to secure a new peak with “Beautiful Things” at No. 2.

Dua Lipa‘s energetic “Training Season” debuts at No. 4, while Ariana Grande‘s “yes, and?” rebounds three spots to No. 7 following the release of a new remix featuring Mariah Carey.
