Beyoncé Extends Her Gratitude To Jack White For Inspiring New Album

Beyoncé Extends Her Gratitude To Jack White For Inspiring New Album

Beyoncé is currently dominating the charts thanks to her rootsy new LP, all while making sure she doesn’t take all the credit for herself.

On Tuesday (April 2), Jack White shared photographs of a bouquet and a thank-you note from the Destiny’s Child alum that reads: “I hope you are well. I just wanted you to know how much you inspired me on this record.”

In the caption of the Instagram post, White responded by expressing his admiration for Bey: “What a sweet gesture to receive here in Nashville this morning from the talented and gracious @beyonce celebrating her new Cowboy Carter album. Much love and respect to you Madam, and thank you kindly. Keep making beautiful and powerful music, nobody sings like you.”

While the credits for Beyoncé’s latest LP do not list White as a contributor, the artists’ affinity with one another is no secret.

Whereas the Detroit native’s long-awaited recordings with JAY-Z never saw the light of day, he did manage to settle on a final product with Queen Bey when the two collaborated on the 2016 Lemonade cut “Don’t Hurt Yourself.”

Furthermore, the Third Man Records boss covered Dolly’s Parton’s “Jolene” when he was still releasing music as one half of the White Stripes back in 2000. Fast forward 24 years and Bey has released her own rendition of the country classic on her new album.

Last year, when she was touring the first act of her ongoing trilogy on the Renaissance Tour, White attended her show in Tennessee and even linked up with her backstage.

“Talking shop with old friends at Beyonce’s incredible Renaissance show in Nashville last night,” he wrote about their meeting. “Bey did an impressively sung tribute to Tina Turner with “River Deep, Mountain high”.

Beyoncé is now the first Black woman to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with her single “Texas Hold ’Em.” Her other single, “16 Carriages,” debuted at No. 9 on the same chart.

Earlier this week, HITS Daily Double reported that Cowboy Carter is “projecting first-week activity north of” 350,000 album-equivalent units, which would secure it an easy No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
