Beyonce’s ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ Rebounds to No. 1 In U.K.

Beyoncé rounds-up the U.K. charts this week, earning the second chart double of her career as Cowboy Carter and “Texas Hold ‘Em” simultaneously secure top spot.

The leader at the midweek stage, “Texas Hold ‘Em” (via Columbia/Parkwood Ent) lifts 3-1 for its fifth non-consecutive week at the summit. It’s one of three album tracks impacting the U.K. top 10 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, published Friday, April 5 — a career-best result for Bey — as “Jolene” bows at No. 8 and “II Most Wanted” with Miley Cyrus opens its account at No. 9.

Previously, Beyonce managed two simultaneous top 10 entries on two separate occasions – in 2008 with “If I Were A Boy” and “Listen” and in 2009 with “If I Were A Boy” and “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It),” the Official Charts Company reports. Across her career, Bey has now accumulated 23 U.K. top 10 singles.

As reported earlier, Cowboy Carter is a history-making No. 1 on the national albums tally, and Bey’s fifth solo leader.

Beyoncé previously managed two simultaneous U.K. top 10 entries on two separate occasions – in 2008 with “If I Were A Boy” and “Listen,” and again in 2009 with “If I Were A Boy” and “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).”

Meanwhile, Hozier’s “Too Sweet” (Island) enjoys a sugar rush, improving 8-4 for a new high. That’s the Irish singer and songwriter’s highest-charting single since his signature song “Take Me To Church” hit No. 2 in 2015.

British singer, songwriter and producer Artemas snags his first U.K. top 10 single with “I Like The Way You Kiss Me.” The viral number improves 13-6.

And finally, Benson Boone enjoys a third U.K. top 40 appearance with “Slow It Down” (Warner Records), up 42-27. It’s the followup to the Washington singer and songwriter’s No. 1 hit “Beautiful Things.”
