Shaboozey has been heating up stages throughout summer with his smash hit, “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” and his recent announcement proves he won’t be slowing down anytime soon. 

The genre-bending sensation’s most recent delivery of the late-night anthem occurred at the BET Awards on Sunday, June 30. Setting the tone with neon lights, a mechanical bull and cowboy boots galore, Shaboozey turned the stage into a honky tonk, marking a memorable debut performance. Fans got to their feet as Shaboozey ditched both his guitar and mic stand and line-danced his way around the stage in an energy-filled hoedown. 

At the end of his performance, Shaboozey remained on stage and was joined by surprise guest J-Kwon. Together they delivered a mashup a mashup of the country singer’s blazing new anthem and the St. Louis rapper’s breakout hit from 2004, which has been revived this year thanks to “A Bar Song (Tipsy).”

“A Bar Song (Tipsy)” Spends Seventh Week In The Top 5

The song that country fans can’t seem to get enough of is currently in its seventh week in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in its ninth week on the chart overall. It peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart and debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Song of the Summer Chart.  The song has also amassed over 550 million streams and landed in the Top 10 in several countries across the world with No. 1’s in Canada, Sweden, Denmark and the UK’s Big 40. 

With his ongoing chart success, Shaboozey and Beyoncé also have made history as the first two Black artists to lead the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with back-to-back No. 1 songs.
