Hit-Boy is stepping up to defend Beyoncé against critics who refuse to recognize her foray into country music.

During the Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 11), Queen Bey surprised fans with the announcement of her upcoming country album, accompanied by the release of two new songs. However, when a fan attempted to request one of the tracks, “Texas Hold ‘Em,” on an Oklahoma-based country radio station, they received a rejection.

In response, the fan, known as @Jussatto on Twitter/X, shared the interaction, decrying it as racism and discrimination against Beyoncé. The fan urged others to email the radio station to request the song.

When Hit-Boy caught wind of the controversy via a post from Popbase, he shared a screenshot on his Instagram with the caption: “TELL EM PLAY TEXAS 🤠” He doubled down in the comments, affirming, “Real country [fire emoji].”

Following widespread backlash on social media, the station eventually relented and added “Texas Hold ‘Em” to their rotation.

A spokesperson for the station later issued a statement to The Shade Room, acknowledging the oversight and expressing enthusiasm for Beyoncé’s venture into country music.

In a remarkable achievement, just one day after the release of “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages,” a fan account revealed that Beyoncé had made history as the FIRST black female artist to top the Apple Music US Country chart. This groundbreaking feat further solidified her status as a cultural icon.

Beyoncé’s announcement of her album “Renaissance: act ii” came through a multi-layered reveal, starting with a Super Bowl ad for Verizon. In the ad, she and the network’s “Can You Hear Me Now” spokesperson attempt various schemes to “break the internet” once again, culminating in a space-bound performance announcement.
