Fans disappointed over missing tracks in Beyoncé’s ‘Cowboy Carter’

Fans of Beyoncé are expressing disappointment and frustration after receiving vinyl and CD editions of her latest album, Cowboy Carter, with missing tracks compared to the digital release, per

The album, which is part of a trilogy following her 2022 record Renaissance, was eagerly anticipated by fans. However, upon receiving physical copies, many discovered that five tracks were absent: “Flamenco,” “Oh Louisiana,” “The Linda Martell Show,” “Spaghetti” and the highly praised “Ya Ya”.

Social media platforms like TikTok and Reddit quickly filled with complaints and queries from perplexed fans wondering why certain songs were excluded. Some speculated that last-minute changes or production issues might have caused the discrepancy.

The situation escalated when fans flooded Beyoncé’s official online store’s Instagram post, demanding explanations and even requesting refunds for the $40 vinyl edition.

Speculation arose that the album’s title might have initially been Beyincé, as indicated on the vinyl and CD spines, referencing a misspelling on Beyoncé’s mother’s birth certificate. This theory, along with Beyoncé’s history of post-release alterations to her albums, added to the confusion.

As fans await clarification, inquiries have been made to Sony Music for an official response on the missing tracks issue.
