Beyoncé Remixes Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ on New ‘Cowboy Carter’ Album

Beyoncé alters the lyrics to ‘Jolene,’ sparking speculation among fans about the song’s intended message.

With the debut of Beyoncé’s latest album, Cowboy Carter, enthusiasts are abuzz over her reinterpretation of one of her tracks.

The Beyhive is abuzz with excitement today.

After eagerly awaiting Beyoncé’s new album, fans finally got their hands on it today, March 29.

One of the standout tracks on Cowboy Carter is “Jolene.”

While the song is essentially a cover of Dolly Parton’s 1973 hit of the same name, Beyoncé has put her own twist on the lyrics…and fans are loving it.

Parton’s version is beloved by many, but Beyoncé has shifted the song’s tone significantly with her rendition.

Parton’s rendition is a plea to a woman described as having unparalleled beauty, urging her not to steal her husband away.

Beyoncé, however, opts for defiance in her version.

The Queen Bee’s rendition serves as a warning to the woman to steer clear of her man or face the consequences.

Beyoncé asserts that her relationship with her man is strong enough to withstand any attempts to sabotage it.

Many fans have interpreted this version as Beyoncé’s warning to ‘Becky with the good hair,’ an unnamed woman often associated with rumors of Jay-Z’s alleged infidelity in 2015.

“Jolene is definitely @Beyonce’s warning to Becky with the good hair to leave her man Sean Carter,” one social media user speculated.

“Dolly Parton calling Becky with the good hair a hussy, leading into Beyoncé doing her version of Jolene is my multiverse of madness,” another quipped.

“Between Dolly calling Becky with the good hair a hussy and Beyoncé telling Jolene she don’t want no smoke, I’m on the f****** floor,” commented another.

“Beyoncé said ‘I ain’t forget about you Becky,'” a fourth fan declared.

The album has received widespread acclaim on social media, with some predicting it could be a contender for album of the year.

Others agreed with the artist’s assertion that it’s not a country album but simply a Beyoncé album.
