Hot 100: Beyonce Becomes the First Black Female Singer to Chart Over 100 Hits Thanks to ‘Cowboy Carter’

Published: Monday 8th Apr 2024 by Rashad

Just last week, Beyonce and Ariana Grande were tied for third place in Billboard history books for most Hot 100 hits among women (85 each).

The shared space was one Grande only got to enjoy for three weeks because Bey’s now eclipsed the ‘Eternal Sunshine‘ songstress in record books thanks to the March 29-released ‘Cowboy Carter.’

As if snatching Ariana’s record for highest first-week sales of 2024 wasn’t enough, Beyonce’s ‘Cowboy’ ride to #1 on the Billboard 200 helped power the placement of some of its tracks on the Hot 100.

Beyond giving Bey three simultaneous top 10 singles, 23 of the 27 songs found on ‘Cowboy’ landed on the refreshed all-genre chart (which will be unveiled in full on April 9).

See the list below:

No. 2, “Texas Hold ‘Em” (up from No. 11; peaked at No. 1 for two weeks)
No. 6, “II Most Wanted,” with Miley Cyrus
No. 7, “Jolene”
No. 16, “Levii’s Jeans,” with Post Malone
No. 26, “Bodyguard”
No. 27, “Blackbiird,” with Tanner Adell, Brittney Spencer, Tiera Kennedy & Reyna Roberts
No. 30, “Ameriican Requiem”
No. 31, “Spaghettii,” with Linda Martell & Shaboozey
No. 37, “Daughter”
No. 38, “16 Carriages” (re-entry; returns to its peak)
No. 39, “Ya Ya”
No. 42, “Protector,” with Rumi Carter
No. 44, “Tyrant,” with Dolly Parton
No. 51, “Riiverdance”
No. 52, “Alliigator Tears”
No. 54, “My Rose”
No. 59, “Just for Fun,” with Willie Jones
No. 60, “II Hands II Heaven”
No. 61, “Sweet * Honey * Buckiin’ ” with Shaboozey
No. 63, “Flamenco”
No. 65, “Desert Eagle”
No. 70, “Oh Louisiana”
No. 87, “Amen”

The addition of the above push the ‘Renaissance‘ diva’s solo career count to 106 – making her the first Black female vocalist to cross the 100-hit threshold. That number does not include the 14 hits she garnered as a member of Destiny’s Child or as part of “The Carters.”

Among all female acts, Bey ranks third behind Taylor Swift (232) and Nicki Minaj (148).

Check out all the artists who have collected over 100 Hot 100 hits since the chart began in 1958.

      When the next total solar eclipse passes over Fredericton in 2079 and our son is 60 years old, I hope he looks back at this photo and remembers this day.


      • Gina April 8, 2024

        After today, the next total solar eclipse on Earth is in 2026. It’ll be visible from Greenland, Iceland, Spain, Russia, and a small area of Portugal, while a partial eclipse will be visible in Europe, Africa, and North America.

        It was ahhhmazing!!

        The next total solar eclipse visible from any point in the contiguous United States will occur in 2044. Totality will only be visible from North Dakota and Montana.

        The next total solar eclipse that will travel across the lower 48 states from coast to coast is in 2045.

      And yet here you are in the comments. #Astounding

      • I April 9, 2024

        Yeah, the clouds were pretty bad. We didn’t get to see as much of the moon crossing in front of the sun, but we got to see it block it out and the c***** that surrounded it. (There were lots of cheers when that happened.) So it turned out to be a pretty good show after all.

    • Eunece April 8, 2024

      I remember totality almost 60 years later; glancing through old photo negatives with parents shrieking not to look at the sun, eating sandwiches and it is an event!

    I told my husband we should have planned this eclipse better. We should have traveled to Niagara Falls, Georgia or Vermont. It looked amazing. He said, “I’ll take you to the next one.” My son said will you still be alive Mom”!!!!!
