Ever since I first met Shaboozey just a few months ago, I’ve been trying to grasp how the hell he became the artist he’s. He is from Woodbridge, Virginia, which is an element of the Washington suburbs in Northern Virginia. He is an American of Nigerian descent. He can be 20 years old. His entire profile reads as a hip-hop artist, leaning trap. And he did it. The first song I heard about him that permit me know who he was was “Beverly Hills,” which is largely a trap jam in the same vein as Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.”

But the more I began being attentive and listening to his music (this was all before his appearance on Beyoncé’s “Cowboy Carter”), the more I saw this heavy lean towards, I suppose, country/Americana/folk music. His singing voice is crazy. But I wasn’t quite sure what to make of him. And then I heard “Let it burn” and I said, “Oh, my friend handled it!” It’s like Future played country, backwood jams with banjo and fiddle and wore Carhartts and large buckles in a non-ironic way. Again, Shaboozey’s voice is crazy and his lyrics are amazing. As for the package, he’s prepared to leap on the country music bandwagon, take up space and take quite a lot of individuals with him. The production value of his music and music videos is top notch.

And then “Cowboy Carter” dropped and ended up in each “SPAGHETTI” AND “SWEET*HONEY*BUCKIIN’” and I felt in my shando that it was about to go to the races. You don’t hear his voice (like all the other artists on “Cowboy Carter”) and you do not need to listen to any more.

Now we’ve probably one in all the best multicultural and unifying songs I actually have ever heard, including “A Bar Song (Tipsy).” Oh my. Good sir.

Have you ever heard a song and immediately knew it was a success? That’s exactly how I felt as soon as “The Bar Song (Tipsy)” hit. The hit is great, but what makes this song special is that it not only jams hard, but additionally takes the lyrics to J-Kwon’s 2004 mega-hit “Tipsy” to the band, he created a song that you just might run into (in fact) at a bar in a club – I bet J-Kwon is waiting for a call NOW. The song can be sung for thus long that I can hear it elsewhere. Even those that don’t love banjos and fiddles will find this song infectious. Well, the song begins with a story about his woman wanting a Birkin, a cross-cultural, class-based concern for all of us, and our significant others who want the finer things in life. We all work hard for money, but we never have enough of it.

Like a lot of us who visit clubs and bars to flee reality, “The Bar Song (Tipsy)” is made for Friday night fun. I mean, who doesn’t have a history with Jack Daniels, you already know? Shaboozey’s penchant for creating relatable content is amazing. I feel like I want to go to a bar JUST this weekend and see what happens when the song comes on since it’s playing in all the places where white people gather. Black venues may be slower in reception, but all it takes is one DJ to play it, after which just a few people in the crowd who know the whole room is playing in two steps and shouting “one, then they go two to three and four!”

Apparently I’m not the just one who feels this manner. In historic style, Shaboozey’s “The Bar Song (Tipsy)” is currently the No. 1 song on Billboard’s country chart, marking the first time a Black artist has overtaken one other Black artist for the No. 1 song on the chart. The song he overtook was none apart from Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold’ Em.”

The yee-haw program is in full swing and running at full speed and I’m completely happy to be here. Pour me a glass of Jack Daniels.

Oh my. Good sir.
