Shaboozey’s ‘A Bar Song (Tipsy)’ Hops to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Shaboozey hoists “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, marking his first leader on the list.

The track concurrently rebounds for a fourth week atop the Hot Country Songs chart, which uses the same multimetric methodology as the Hot 100. Previously, 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” earlier this year.


Virgina native Shaboozey (born Collins Obinna Chibueze) charted two Hot 100 hits, in April, prior to “A Bar Song (Tipsy),” both from Beyoncé’s LP Cowboy Carter: “Spaghettii” (also with Linda Martell; No. 31 peak) and “Sweet * Honey * Buckiin’ ” (No. 61).

“A Bar Song (Tipsy)” is from Shaboozey’s LP Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going, which debuted at its No. 5 high on the Billboard 200 in June. It has reached No. 2 on Top Country Albums and leads the Americana/Folk Albums chart for a third week.

Of his breakthrough this year, the 29-year-old, who has been releasing music for a decade, recently mused to Billboard, “We were pretty prepared for this moment.”

Also in the latest Hot 100 top 10, Chappell Roan achieves her first top 10 as “Good Luck, Babe!” ascends a spot to No. 10.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital singles sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites are excluded from chart calculations. All charts (dated July 13, 2024) will update on tomorrow, July 9. For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both X, formerly known as Twitter, and Instagram.
