The stock of Virginia-born country music star Shaboozey continues to rise. Shortly after touching the stage at the 2024 BET Awards in Los Angeles, he topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time in his evolving career. “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” outperformed Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” and “I Had Some Help” by Post Malone and Morgan Wallen to claim the top spot for the first time after spending 11 weeks on the charts. Shaboozey joins Beyoncé as one of only two Black artists to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart and the Billboard Hot 100. The Virginia native took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to celebrate his most recent accomplishment.

“The actual feeling of having your ‘dreams come true’ is indescribable, and I hope everyone gets to experience it at some point in life,” he wrote.

This is not the only Shaboozey-assisted record to hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2024. He contributed to Beyoncé’s “Spaghettii” and “Sweet * Honey * Buckiin,” which peaked at 31st and 61st, respectively. The album, Cowboy Carter, earned 76 million streams in its first day and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 with 407,000 album-equivalent units. Shaboozey’s latest album, Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going, also hit number five on the Billboard 200. Ending the year, Shaboozey will head out on tour from September 9 through October 14.
