Table of Contents

Collins Obinna Chibueze, born May 9, 1995, and known by his stage name Shaboozey, is a Nigerian-American musician, singer-songwriter, filmmaker, and record producer. His music combines hip-hop, country, rock, and Americana.

Raised in Woodbridge, Virginia, Shaboozey’s stage name is derived from the mispronunciations of his surname, Chibueze, which means “God is king” in Igbo. His early exposure to diverse musical influences, from music videos on “106 & Park” to his experiences at a boarding school in Nigeria, played a crucial role in shaping his musical style.

Shaboozey’s career took off in 2014 with the release of his first single, “Jeff Gordon.” His talent soon caught the attention of Republic Records, which led to a signing in 2017. His debut studio album, Lady Wrangler, was released in 2018, followed by his second album, Cowboys Live Forever, Outlaws Never Die, in 2022.

His third studio album, Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going, is set for release on May 31, 2024. This upcoming album shows a shift from his earlier trap-influenced sound to a more folk-pop aesthetic.

Shaboozey’s influences are as varied as his music.

He cites legendary rock bands like the Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, and Led Zeppelin, alongside icons such as Fela Kuti, Clipse, Roger Waters, Backstreet Boys, Pharrell, Missy Elliott, Lead Belly, and Johnny Cash. These diverse influences are evident in his work, as he creates a rich tapestry of sounds that resonate with a broad global audience.

A Bar Song (Tipsy) – A Toast to Good Times

Released on April 12, 2024, “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” is a standout track from Shaboozey’s upcoming album Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going. The song has quickly climbed the charts, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping charts internationally.

“A Bar Song (Tipsy)” also achieved a significant milestone on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. This marked a historic moment as the track succeeded Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” at the top.

The song opens with the inclusion of J-Kwon’s 2004 hit “Tipsy” and immediately sets a tone of familiarity and nostalgia. This clever nod to early 2000s hip-hop is just one example of Shaboozey’s knack for weaving different musical eras and styles into his work. This is a mastermind way of morphing music.  Never forgeting  the roots of the Genre’s and The Why we have the beats of today is humble in nature.  The growth and evaluation of music is great space to work from.  Shaboozey has nailed this down. We can’t wait to see what is next. 

The lyrical content centers around a protagonist who, frustrated with the drudgery of his nine-to-five job, seeks solace in the liberating environment of a bar. This theme of escapism is universally relatable, tapping into the everyday struggles and the subsequent search for relief through social interactions and intoxication.

Musically,A Bar Song (Tipsy)” is a fusion of hip-hop, country, and rock elements, which reflects Shaboozey’s varied influences. The track’s instrumentation is a blend of rhythmic acoustic guitar, a driving beat, and a catchy hook that is sure to get stuck in listeners’ heads. The production is polished, yet it retains a raw, organic feel that adds to the song’s authenticity and appeal.

The lyrics of the song are both humorous and touching and capture the highs and lows of a night out. Lines like “My baby want a Birkin, she’s been tellin’ me all night long / Gasoline and groceries, the list goes on and on” highlight the repetitive pressures of daily life.

The repeated refrain “Everybody at the bar gettin’ tipsy,” on the other hand, encapsulates the communal, carefree spirit of a night spent at a bar. The interplay between these themes is what makes the song so compelling. “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” is not just about the joy of letting loose but also about the underlying need to escape from reality, even if just for a little while.

Shaboozey’s vocal performance on the track is charismatic and laid-back, and perfectly captures the mood of the song. His delivery is confident, but you can feel some vulnerability coming through, particularly in the more reflective moments.

One of the standout aspects of “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” is its relatability. The theme of seeking a break from the monotony of daily life through socializing and drinking is a common one, yet Shaboozey’s approach feels raw and genuine. The song doesn’t glamorize excessive drinking but rather portrays it as a communal activity, a way for people to connect and unwind.  This approach is a refreshing spin on the outpour of repetitive flexiing we are so accustomed to hear on so many songs of today’s Genre’s. 

Shaboozey’s natural flex of feels rather than things definitely resonates with the people of today.   Living in the moment and experiencing the good ole vibes of down home fun love and support of friends, simply taking a load off.
