He expressed his shock and disbelief that such racial discrimination still exists in certain parts of the world today. McCartney hopes that his song, along with Beyoncé’s powerful rendition, can contribute to easing racial tension and make a positive impact.

Beyoncé released her country-themed album, “Cowboy Carter,” on March 29. The album features several duets with notable artists like Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus. Despite the album’s intended message, Beyoncé has faced backlash from critics.

Azealia Banks, in a social media rant, referred to the album as “Little Bey on the Prairie.”

However, Beyoncé addressed the criticism during her acceptance speech for the Innovator Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, emphasizing that being an innovator often means facing criticism and testing one’s mental strength.

It’s heartwarming to witness the exchange of admiration and respect between two musical powerhouses like Paul McCartney and Beyoncé. Their collaboration, even through a cover song, serves as a reminder of the transformative power of music and its ability to unite people and promote positive change.
