Beyoncé Enlists 6-Year-Old Daughter Rumi for 'Cowboy Carter' Track: Listen!

Rumi Carter appears 'Protector,' a song on her mom's latest album.

Beyoncé is making Cowboy Carter a family affair! On the 42-year-old singer's latest album, she tapped her 6-year-old daughter, Rumi Carter, to appear on a track titled "Protector."

At the beginning of the song, Rumi asks, "Mom, can I hear the lullaby? Please?"

With that, Beyoncé obliges, singing to her daughter, "And I will lead you down that road if you lose your way / Born to be a protector / Even though I know someday you're gonna shine on your own / I will be your projector."


Rumi isn't the only special guest to pop up on Cowboy Carter. For her eighth studio album, Beyoncé collaborated with artists including Dolly PartonPost Malone and Miley Cyrus.

When Beyoncé announced the track list for the album and revealed that she'd be covering Parton's "Jolene," the country superstar expressed her support for the track.

"Listen to my original 'Jolene' while you wait for @Beyonce’s COWBOY CARTER - Dolly P," Parton tweeted.

Beyoncé first announced that new music was on the way in a surprise Super Bowl ad at this year's game. Shortly after the announcement, Beyoncé revealed that the first two songs off the album, "Texas Hold 'Em" and "16 Carriages," were out.

In an Instagram post ahead of the album's release, Beyoncé opened up about the inspiration for her latest project.

"This album has been over five years in the making. It was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed… and it was very clear that I wasn't," she wrote. "But, because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of country music and studied our rich musical archive. It feels good to see how music can unite so many people around the world, while also amplifying the voices of some of the people who have dedicated so much of their lives educating on our musical history."

She added that Cowboy Carter is "a result of challenging myself, and taking my time to bend and blend genres together to create this body of work."

"This ain't a country album. This is a 'Beyoncé' album," she concluded. "This is act ii COWBOY CARTER, and I am proud to share it with y'all!"
