The Beyhive and Little Monsters have speculating if Beyoncé's forthcoming album, Cowboy Carter, contains the follow-up to the iconic collaboration between herself and Lady Gaga on "Telephone".

In a thread on X, formerly known as Twitter, fans of Beyoncé and Lady Gaga have been putting their detective hats on in order to solve the mystery of whether a long-overdue collaboration is on the cards. Lady Gaga and Beyoncé released "Telephone" in 2009 and teased their respective fandoms by writing "to be continued..." in the credits to the nine-minute music video.

Fans have noticed similarities between the visuals for one of Beyoncé's first singles for the project, "Texas Hold 'Em", and the music video for "Telephone". After Beyoncé revealed that she had been working on Cowboy Carter for almost five years, one person connected the dots, suggesting: "gaga had just finished Joanne and ASIB [A Star Is Born].. both country-esque so it makes sense for Beyonce to look at her for a collab", meanwhile Lady Gaga herself posted a picture of the FAME magazine on her Instagram Story which the "Telephone" cover in in view.

Yesterday, Beyoncé revealed the tracklist for Cowboy Carter. One of the tracks is titled “Dolly P” alongside Parton’s iconic hit “Jolene” — which Beyoncé is rumoured to have covered, thanks to Parton teasing the collaboration a few weeks ago. Whilst there is no confirmation of a collaboration, another song on the album is “Smoke Hour Willie Nelson", with the counterpart "Smoke Hour II". "The Linda Martell Show" referring to the first Black country artist to play the famous Grand Ole Opry and one of the first commercially successful Black country artists, is also among the tracklist.

Beyoncé is set to release Renaissance Act II on 29 March.
