Beyoncé's road to pop culture royalty and country stardom

Building on the success of her 2022 album 'Renaissance' and the spectacular world tour that followed it, Beyoncé released a surprise new single that's shooting her to the top of the charts in a whole new genre. 'Texas Hold 'Em' was released after the Super Bowl along with another single called '16 Carriages.' The releases came with the announcement that 'Act II,' the second album in her 'Renaissance' trilogy project, will be released on March 29. Based on the first two singles, it's set to be a country-themed album and a strong contrast to Act I's thumping party anthems. 'Texas Hold 'Em' debuted at number one on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, making her the first Black woman ever to top the chart. This also made her the first woman ever to have number-one hits on both the Hot Country Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hip Songs charts. Beyoncé is likely the most well-known singer in the world, and she's one of the few stars who has achieved such a legacy through an almost unbelievably clean, uphill trajectory. It seems with each project or performance she outdoes herself, and at this point she really is her only competition at the top. To celebrate her ongoing success, why not read some interesting facts about Beyoncé's story so far? From her style inspiration to her favorite film, once you're done here you may as well be a part of the Beyhive (if you aren't already).


The wonderful wetlands of the United States

America's wetlands, bogs, swamps, and marshes usually get a bad rap. They've been associated with humid, mosquito-infested, alligator-haunted areas of horrors for a large portion of history, and some today still hold that misconception. In truth, the wetlands of the United States, and the world at large, are some of the most beautiful, fascinating, and important ecosystems there are. More than where to find mosquitos and scary reptiles, they are also home to innumerable species of birds, butterflies, and fish. And to put aesthetics aside altogether, wetlands are also some of the hardest-working ecosystems in the world. They filter our air, fortify our coastlines, and blunt the damage that violent storms can bring. Intrigued? Then click on to take a look at some of America's most magnificent wetlands.
