Shaboozey Scores Breakout Hit with 'A Bar Song (Tipsy)' After Beyoncé Feature

Shaboozey, a rising country star, has achieved a major milestone with his solo single "A Bar Song (Tipsy)", which broke records by topping Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and debuting atop the all-genre Digital Song Sales list. The 29-year-old artist's breakout moment was sparked by his feature on Beyoncé's album Cowboy Carter, where he appeared as a guest on two songs.

"A Bar Song" interpolates J-Kwon's 2004 smash "Tipsy" and has collected an impressive 64.9 million official on-demand streams through April 25, according to Luminate. Shaboozey suspects that his solo track was the reason he was featured on Cowboy Carter, as "Someone at Parkwood or in Beyoncé's camp heard ["A Bar Song"] from me playing it live and was like, 'We have to bring him in the studio,'" he recalls.

The song has also exploded on TikTok, soundtracking over 150,000 posts in just a few weeks, and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Shaboozey's first solo entry on the chart. "I had been wanting to flip a 2000s song for a while," Shaboozey says, noting Petey Pablo's "Raise Up" was also in the running.

Shaboozey and Beyoncé made history by becoming the first Black artists to score back-to-back leaders on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart with "Texas Hold 'Em" and "A Bar Song". "Feeling like you did the song you're flipping justice and then getting that co-sign, not everybody gets that," Shaboozey gushes about receiving J-Kwon's approval for his interpolation.

Looking ahead, Shaboozey has his sights set on even bigger goals. "I want the Grammy," he declares. His album Where I've Been, Isn't Where I'm Going is set for release on May 31. The rising star's live performance of "Vegas" for music discovery platform COLORS has already amassed 1.3 million YouTube views, further cementing his status as an artist to watch.

With the massive success of "A Bar Song (Tipsy)" and a high-profile feature on Beyoncé's album, Shaboozey is poised for even greater heights in his burgeoning career. "We were pretty prepared for this moment," he reflects on his career-shifting breakout. As the 29-year-old continues to make waves in the country music scene, all eyes are on what he will achieve next.
