Dolly Parton Wins the Red-Flag Meme With This ‘Jolene’ Tweet

Even though it only started on Monday, Twitter’s red-flag meme — where people are posting questionable opinions and quotes followed by a series of red-flag emojis in warning — has already taken over the social media site, with everyone from politicians to brands co-opting the trend.

But everyone can pack up their flags and go home, because Dolly Parton has offered up the best red-flag tweet yet.

On Wednesday (Oct. 13), the legendary singer/songwriter tweeted, “When her beauty is beyond compare with flaming locks of auburn hair,” followed by three red-flag emojis.

The line is pulled straight from Parton’s 1973 Hot Country Songs No. 1 song “Jolene,” in which she begs another woman not to steal her man “just because you can.” So yeah, Jolene’s infamous beauty is, indeed, a red flag.

The song has taken on new life thanks to a series of high-profile cover versions, with Lil Nas X most recently tackling the country classic last month in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. Parton even co-signed Nas’ take on the song, tweeting, “I was so excited when someone told me that Lil Nas X had done my song #Jolene. I had to find it and listen to it immediately…and it’s really good,” she wrote while sharing LNX’s performance video. “Of course, I love him anyway. I was surprised and I’m honored and flattered. I hope he does good for both of us. Thank you @LilNasX.”

‘No Time to Die’ Scores on Billboard’s Soundtracks & Classical Albums Charts

The soundtrack to the latest James Bond film, No Time to Die, makes a splash on Billboard’s charts, as the set debuts at No. 1 on both the overall Classical Albums chart and the Classical Crossover Albums tally, as well as starting at No. 7 on the Soundtracks chart (all dated Oct. 16). Plus, Billie Eilish’s title track debuts on the Billboard Global Excluding U.S. chart.

The No Time to Die album earned 5,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 7, according to MRC Data. Of that sum, traditional album sales comprise nearly 4,000.

The companion album to the film of the same name was released on Oct. 1, one week before the movie arrived in U.S. and Canadian movie theaters. (The film bowed in many territories on Sept. 30, including the United Kingdom.) No Time to Die was originally slated to premiere in the spring of 2020, but its release was delayed following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The soundtrack consists mostly of score composed by Hans Zimmer and performed by an orchestra and choir conducted by Matt Dunkley. The set also includes Eilish’s Grammy Award-winning Bond theme, “No Time to Die,” which earlier debuted and peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart (dated Feb. 29, 2020).

Concurrent with the album’s release, and the film’s arrival on movie screens outside the U.S., Eilish’s tune also bows at No. 132 on the Billboard Global Excluding U.S. chart. The list ranks the world’s most popular songs of the week based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories as compiled by MRC Data. The Billboard Global Excluding U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the U.S.
