Shaboozey Celebrates ‘A Bar Song (Tipsy)’ Hitting No. 1 on Hot 100: ‘Take a Double Shot of Whiskey 4 Me’

Shaboozey notched his first Billboard Hot 100 chart topper with “A Bar Song (Tipsy),” which topped the tally on the chart dated July 13, 2024.

Upon seeing the news, the 29-year-old musician took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to celebrate. “WE DID IT YALL,” he wrote alongside a tweet of the new chart achievement, before adding, “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 interpolates J-Kwon’s 2004 smash “Tipsy” — concurrently notches a fourth week atop the Hot Country Songs chart. No song by a Black man, or one known to be biracial, had previously topped both charts. He is the second Black artist overall to achieve the feat – following Beyoncé with “Texas Hold ‘Em.”

Shaboozey was featured on Bey’s Cowboy Carter album earlier this year, on “SPAGHETTII” and “SWEET HONEY BUCKIIN’.” He told Billboard back in May: “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.”

He added of the inspiration behind “A Bar Song,” “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.”
