Shaboozey’s hit track “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” has reached the Number One spot on the Billboard Hot 100 after spending several weeks in the Top 10. “We did it yall. We no. 1. I love y’all,” he wrote, quote-tweeting an account that shared the news. “Happy ‘A Bar Song’ day. Take a double shot of whiskey 4 me!”

The country hip-hop act Shaboozey went on to celebrate his accomplishment on social media, describing the feeling of reaching Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 as “indescribable.”

“The actual feeling of having your ‘dreams come true’ is indescribable, and I hope everyone gets to experience it at some point in life,” Shaboozey wrote after sharing a post about how he and Beyoncé were both the only Black artists to have a song reach Number One on both the Hot 100 and Hot Country songs charts.

He also reposted a tweet he shared in January that read, “Bookmark this tweet: we blowing up this year!”
In May, Shaboozey recounted how he created his record revealing the inspiration was drawn from Pharrell Williams during the song’s production process.

“You can’t have a country song with no 12-string, can’t have no bluegrass song with no 12-string guitar,” he said. “It’s got a brighter tone to it.”

Shaboozey first gained prominence through his contributions to Cowboy Carter, collaborating with Beyoncé on tracks like “Spaghettii” and standout “Sweet Honey Buckiin’.” He also released his album “Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going” last month.

“He comes across like someone raised on country who also appreciates hip hop. In doing so, he’s effectively changed the game,” read a Rolling Stone review of the LP. “Cowboy Carter (where he made two cameos) lobbed the first volley in redefining and modernizing country, but Shaboozey’s second album is a full-on barrage of all those possibilities.”
