Shaboozey, the Nigerian Country music star has achieved a monumental milestone in his career as his track “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” notched the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated July 13, 2024.

This marks Shaboozey’s first time atop the Hot 100, a feat that has sent waves of excitement through the music industry and his fanbase alike.

Upon learning the news, the 29-year-old artist took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to share his joy with his followers. “WE DID IT YALL,” he jubilantly tweeted, sharing a snapshot of the new chart. He continued, “WE NO. 1, I LOVE Y’ALL. HAPPY A BAR SONG DAY. TAKE A DOUBLE SHOT OF WHISKEY 4 ME!”

“A Bar Song (Tipsy),” which creatively interpolates J-Kwon’s 2004 hit “Tipsy,” has also maintained its dominance on the Hot Country Songs chart for the fourth consecutive week.

Remarkably, Shaboozey has made history as the first Black man, and the second Black artist overall after Beyoncé, to top both the Hot 100 and Hot Country Songs charts simultaneously. Beyoncé previously achieved this with “Texas Hold ‘Em.”

Shaboozey’s recent collaboration with Beyoncé on her Cowboy Carter album, featuring on tracks “SPAGHETTII” and “SWEET HONEY BUCKIIN’,” has been a significant highlight of his career.

In an interview with Billboard in May, he expressed his admiration for Beyoncé’s work, saying, “What I loved about [the] Beyoncé album is the inspiration and the influence that she had are probably the same as mine. We’re studying the same things.”

Discussing the creative process behind “A Bar Song,” Shaboozey revealed, “I had been wanting to flip a 2000s song for a while. I just said, ‘Everybody at the bar getting tipsy,’ and then we were like, ‘Oh, sh-t!’ The producer picked up the guitar and started playing the chords, and then we started writing, just having fun and being creative.”

With this chart-topping achievement, Shaboozey has firmly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, and fans are eagerly anticipating what he will do next.
