Beyoncé Flips “Jolene” Into A Country Sequel To 2016’s “Sorry”

Written by on March 29, 2024

Beyoncé’s latest album, “COWBOY CARTER,” features a bold cover of Dolly Parton’s iconic song “Jolene,” transforming it into a country sequel to her 2016 hit “Sorry.” Dolly Parton herself introduces the track with a voice note, humorously linking “Jolene” to the “Becky with the good hair” mentioned in “Sorry.” Beyoncé’s rendition of “Jolene” takes a confrontational stance, warning Jolene off rather than expressing fear of losing her man, showcasing lyrics that emphasize strength and independence. Dolly Parton had previously expressed hope that Beyoncé would cover “Jolene,” a wish that came true with the release of “COWBOY CARTER.” This album not only explores country influences but also continues Beyoncé’s trend of breaking barriers and setting records for Black artists in country music, despite any potential criticism. Parton’s support and anticipation for Beyoncé’s cover highlight the crossover appeal and mutual respect between these two artists from different musical backgrounds.
