The second song, "16 Carriages," is another country-tinged track, in which Beyoncé sings atop a strong rustic beat.

"Sixteen carriages drivin' away while I watch them ride with my dreams away / To the summer sunset on a holy night / On a long back road, all the tears I find," the mother of three sings on the track's chorus.

"Fifteen innocents was gone astray / Had to leave my home at an early age," she continues in another verse. "I saw mama prayin', I saw daddy grind / All my tender problems, had to leave behind."

In that song's cover art, Beyoncé is photographed in black and white, wearing a black cowboy hat with her hair styled in a wavy bob.
