Reba Covers Beyonce’s ‘If I Were a Boy’
While Reba‘s upcoming album is entitled ‘All the Women I Am,’ she’s been tackling the opposite sex’s perspective with a cover of Beyoncé‘s ‘If I Were a Boy.’ Reba’s countrified version of the hit song will appear on her new CD, due in stores November 9.
This isn’t the first time a Beyoncé-penned tune has become a country crossover. Sugarland covered her infectious hit, ‘Irreplaceable,’ on their ‘Live on the Inside‘ album, and Beyoncé even performed the song with the duo on the 2007 American Music Awards.
This also isn’t the first time Reba has transformed a pop hit to her country tastes. The 2007 release, ‘Reba Duets,’ included a version of ‘Because of You,’ which she recorded with the tune’s original singer, Kelly Clarkson. The collaboration made it to No. 3 on the charts and earned the pair a CMA nomination for Musical Event of the Year and an ACM nomination for Vocal Event of the Year.
‘All the Women I Am’ is the Queen of Country’s 34th career album and also includes her current single, ‘Turn on the Radio.’ To date, she has sold more than 55 million albums and has charted 30 No. 1 hits.
