The Beyhive suspects Beyoncé's next release will be a country record.

As the singer approaches the two-year mark since she released Renaissance, fans have begun to whisper she may have switched gears musically and is working on a country album.

The rumours circulating in the 'Beyhive' were fuelled by Beyoncé's outfit at the 66th annual Grammy Awards on February 4 - not only was she wearing a ribbon tie, which they interpreted as a nod to country attire, but she was sporting a large, beige cowboy hat, to boot.

"Beyonce wearing a cowboy hat at the Grammy's.... Act 2 country album ?!!!" one excited fan wrote on X/Twitter.

There's also the name she gave her 2021 sportswear collaboration with Adidas: Ivy Park Rodeo. At the time, Beyoncé said the name arose in homage to the eclectic musical influences she had growing up.

"I grew up seeing artists like Selena and Frankie Beverly and Maze and today it is just as eclectic with artists like Kacey Musgraves to Mary J. Blige," Beyoncé said. "I remember the trail ride, with people riding from all over to the Houston Rodeo."
