How's the view from the top of the charts, Shaboozey?

The multi-genre musician, 29, achieved his first-ever No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with "A Bar Song (Tipsy)," his breakout smash that recently topped the publication's Hot Country Songs chart — making him the second-ever Black artist to reach the highest slot on both charts following Beyoncé with "Texas Hold 'Em."

"WE DID IT YALL. WE NO. 1. I LOVE Y'ALL," wrote the Virginia-born singer/rapper on social media following the latest chart's release on July 8. "HAPPY A BAR SONG DAY. TAKE A DOUBLE SHOT OF WHISKEY 4 ME!"

Released in April, "A Bar Song (Tipsy)" appears on Shaboozey's latest album, Where I've Been, Isn't Where I'm Going. The country-pop track, which interpolates J-Kwon's 2004 hit "Tipsy," has since reached No. 1 in several countries around the globe.

After first garnering recognition in 2018 with the Duckwrth collaboration "Start a Riot" from the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack, the performer found even more eyes on his career after featuring on two songs from Beyoncé's Cowboy Carter album earlier this year: "Spaghettii" and "Sweet / Honey / Buckiin'."

"I've been doing music for such a long time, I've put a lot of time and years into it," Shaboozey — whose first album, Lady Wrangler, was released in 2018 — told PEOPLE in a recent interview. "I put so much into it that I feel like it’s just cool to see it working. Everybody hopes it works. To see it actually working, it’s unreal."

“It feels like a dream” he added. “It feels like I'm definitely going to wake up at some point and be like, ‘Damn, that s--- was a dream?’”

Elsewhere in the interview, Shaboozey spoke about reworking J-Kwon's "Tipsy" for his breakthrough hit. "Everybody's heard ‘Tipsy.' I think every single person. And everybody definitely goes to the bar. Going to the bar and then getting drunk, getting tipsy and then going to the club — it’s doing the same thing," he said.

"Music transcends like that. It's cool to see everyone knows that song and everyone knows this one, so there's a little bit of commonality there that people like drinking and partying," added Shaboozey.

“You never know. You can't know. You just put out these songs [hoping] that consistency will get you there,” continued the star of his song’s success. “It's about making the song and how the people react to it. It's cool to just see it actually work out that way.”
