Dolly Parton Says She Wants Beyonce To Remake ‘Jolene’

Published: Wednesday 9th Dec 2020 by Sam

Country music legend Dolly Parton is renown for many things – including crafting the original version of a number of notable classics. Case in point ‘I Will Always Love You,’ which was blast into the stratosphere by Whitney Houston. 

And while some acts are rattled by others having greater success with songs they originated, Parton isn’t.

For, as principle writer on most of her musical output, she’s mentioned many times that she’s actually in favor of being covered.

So much so that she’s actively eyeing a major name to sample her song ‘Jolene’ and she has Beyonce in her sights.

Full story below…

Speaking with The Big Issue, Parton proposes a Queen Bey take on the enduring hit. She said:

“‘Jolene’ has been recorded more than any other song that I have ever written.

It has been recorded worldwide over 400 times in lots of different languages, by lots of different bands. The White Stripes did a wonderful job of it, and many other people. But nobody’s ever had a really big hit record on it. I’ve always hoped somebody might do someday, someone like Beyoncé.”

With Bey having infused Country sounds into her music before, we’d love to see her do so again – even if only for one track. Especially given how much of a slay ‘Daddy Lessons’ is.

Indeed, we continue to have the original and Dixie Chicks remix on replay!

    It will TANK, just like songs from the gift album

    Not 1 song from that album charted after she released black is king

    Beyonce was literally the talk of the town on twitter for several days after she dropped black is king.
    I was expecting songs from black os king to flood the chart but not 1 song charted.

      9x Grammy Nominee. Black Is King

      An album about culture. Not based on today’s sound.

      Camicky. 0x Grammy Nominee and still flopped

      An album about chasing trends, getting hot rapper, adding a duet at the last minute.

      Camicky Christmas Song #81 on Us Itunes . The public has spoken on Camickys fate

    No Beyoncé do don’t do it. If after over 400 times it’s been released and nothing happens nothing will. And to have so much hate darted towards Beyoncé on whether or not her projects are #1 (music/movie) she cares less for #1’s because her projects are newsworthy Oscars/Grammys etc

      Beyoncé’s ‘Black Is King’ attracts less than 4% of Disney+ users on debut weekend: Data

      Beyonce impact my àss

      She’s not popular like the way she’s portraying her self to be. It’s all smoke and mirrors

      Twitter is not real
      Just because ur trending on Twitter everyday doesn’t mean people will buy or stream ur shìt, look at flopmani for example .

      If Kendrick Lamar or even kanye did black is king, it will be a massive hit on all platforms. Look at the black panther soundtrack for example

        Camicky Christmas Song #81 US ITunes

      • tyty December 9, 2020

        You’ve already been debunked BLK WAS the 4th most watched show on Disney+ In 2020. Stop embarrassing yourself.

  6. #TheTruth December 9, 2020

    Please no. Just no. Leave that country behind.

  7. Keith December 9, 2020

    I don’t think Beyoncé is the choice but perhaps ChloeXHalle could do something with it. Or just leave it alone, period, LOL…

  8. Pat December 9, 2020

    White audiences left her alone and black gays n women don’t buy country. You’ll get nowhere near Whitney money which is what dollys looking for again

  9. AJ December 9, 2020

  14. Dialtone December 9, 2020

    Beyoncé is played out. We’re sick of her and that pretentious God complex she has.

    It will flop. and I will tell you why. Beyonce’s fanbase want ghetto ratchet music. Whenever she releases something other than ghetto music she flops. Look at the lion King and other releases like Black Parade. It’s like Bey’s fans have trapped her into a box of only supporting her when she’s making the music she wants. There I said It. Lady gaga can make this country song a top 10 hit on billboard and radio.

    • tyty December 9, 2020

      None of Beyoncé songs have been ghetto or ratchet so why you lying? You people just pull anything out of your ass like please tell us what ghetto ratchet music has Beyoncé ever released? You have DIL, BDAY,IM SASHA FIERCE, SELF TITLED AND LEMONADE TO PICK FROM. Have at it.

      • Keith December 10, 2020

        @tyty: Beyonce doesn’t make ratchet music but there are some hood tracks in her repertoire: 7/11, Bow Down, Feelin Myself, Partition, Yonce, ApeS…,Top Down, to name a few. Not saying I don’t listen to some of these myself but let’s not pretend that for a minute she catered to a more “hood/trap-ish”/lowest common denominator energy and people ate it up.

      • Keith December 10, 2020

        *she didn’t cater to*

  17. Okay! December 10, 2020

    It’s a yes for me!!!!
    Everyone stay humble and safe!🙏🏾💆🏽‍♀️😷😘
