“It’s desire, “Let’s explore something with this song,” she continued. In the event that we disassemble and reassemble it. Bey might have done a little more with that, in my opinion.

In an Instagram statement on February 22, the original “Jolene” hitmaker stated, “I’m an avid follower of Beyonce and am thrilled that she’s done a country album.” Congratulations, then, on your number one single on Billboard Hot Country.
