Shaboozey is carving out his own lane. Building upon the success of his appearances on two of Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter tracks—“SPAGHETTII” and “SWEET HONEY BUCKIIN’”—the Virginia native earned a Billboard 100 top 10 hit with the country track, “A Bar Song (Tipsy).” The record blends sounds of hip-hop, country, and folk into a sonic melting pot that serves as a microcosm of Shaboozey’s sound as a whole. Amidst his newfound notoriety, he aims to take his music to the next level, while at the same highlighting all the Black talent that the country genre has to offer.
