Like New Year's, Beyoncé's Cowboy Carter is making its way across the world's time zones. Slated to be released at midnight on Friday, March 29, Bey's eighth studio album has already landed in Australia.

Parton and Nelson appear in interludes as DJs on the album's conceptual KNTRY radio station, introducing various tracks. Parton intros Beyoncé's loose cover of her 1973 classic "Jolene," with updated lyrics that are quite a bit more...combative. 'Cause Bey don't play when it comes to her man.

Country pioneer Linda Martell, the first legit Black female country star, also shows up in an interlude, introducing the track, "Ya Ya," which features an interpolation of the Beach Boys' hit "Good Vibrations." And that's not the only nod to classic rock: Bey also covers the Beatles' beloved ballad "Blackbird," off their White Album.

Yoncé and Cyrus' voices blend beautifully on the track "II Most Wanted," while Malone guests on the following track, "Levii's Jeans," and country and hip-hop artist Shaboozey pops up on "Spaghettii."

Cowboy Carter also includes contributions from Black country artists such as Rhiannon Giddens, Tanner Adell, and Willie Jones.
