Shaboozey Debuts in Top 5 With Album “Where I’ve Been Isn’t Where I’m Going” – Country Music News Blog


Today, Shaboozey’s critically acclaimed, masterpiece album Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going debuts at #5 the Billboard 200 album chart.


The triumphant feat comes following a highly successful album launch on Friday, May 31 and major praise from the New York Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, and many more. Listen to the album HERE.

​​A star continues to shine as Shaboozey asserts himself as a permanent fixture in mainstream culture. The country/hip hop hitmaker continues to pave his own lane and share his sound with the world with two show-stopping performances of his RIAA-platinum certified anthem and song of the summer “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Kelly Clarkson Show.

He made his CMA Fest debut this past Thursday with audience packed performances at Nissan Stadium (his debut stadium performance) and the Good Molecules Reverb Stage, effectively shutting down the surrounding area, along with an electrifying set at Spotify House on Saturday. He also hosted the Country Fan Fare Stadium Afterparty with PBR and made a notable appearance at the SiriusXM Happy Hour.

“A Bar Song (Tipsy)” enters its fifth week in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and seventh week on the chart overall. It peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart, and debuts at #3 on Billboard’s Song of the Summer Chart. He and Beyoncé also made history as the first two Black artists to lead the chart with back-to-back #1 songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The song has also amassed over 400 million streams and landed in the Top 10 in several countries across the world with #1s in Canada, Sweden, Denmark and the UK’s Big 40.

Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going is the most boldly realized work yet from a singular new voice on the music scene. The Virginia-bred singer/songwriter charts a cinematic road trip through the wilds of the American West, bringing a powerful new depth to his storytelling while pushing further into the country/folk-inspired sound he’s explored in recent years. Streaming juggernaut and critically acclaimed single “Let It Burn,” the haunting heartbreak track “Anabelle,” and “Vegas,” a sing-along ready single straight from the wild west, were the first tracks off the album to give fans a taste of the highly awaited project – one primed for universal acclaim.
