Post Malone, Beyoncé & More Are Charting a Reverse Course With Pop-to-Country Moves

There’s a long history of country-to-pop crossovers, from Dolly Parton to Shania Twain to Taylor Swift. But 2024 is proving to be the year of the pop-to-country crossover, from Beyoncé‘s Cowboy Carter album to Post Malone‘s twangy “I Had Some Help” to Dua Lipa‘s surprise ACM Awards duet with Chris Stapleton.

On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith are talking about the chart-topping trend, and who might be the next pop star to take his or her talents to Nashville. Listen below:

Also on the show, speaking of Malone, we’ve got chart news on how “I Had Some Help,” featuring Morgan Wallen, blasts straight in at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Country Songs charts with a massive streaming debut. Plus, Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department holds tight at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a fourth consecutive week. How long could she hold on to the No. 1 spot?
