Florida Georgia Line & Bebe Rexha’s “Meant to Be” Makes History on the Charts

Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line are reclaiming their title with some help from Bebe Rexha.

FGL and Bebe’s smash hit, “Meant to Be,” is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart for the 34th week, which ties Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” for the all-time record. The 59-year-old Billboard Hot Country Songs chart blends streaming, airplay and sales data.

“It’s been nothing but good vibes to see it take off and inspire,” says Brian. “Its message is a positive one and [that’s] why I think it’s connecting with those who hear it. We can’t thank country radio enough for all of the support.”

FGL’s “Cruise” owned the record before Sam’s “Body Like a Back Road” broke it in 2017. “Meant to Be” was co-penned by Bebe Rexha, Josh Miller, David Garcia and FGL’s Tyler Hubbard.

“From day one, this song was just meant to be,” says Tyler. “Bebe jumped in on a canceled writing session last minute and now it’s going down in history.”

If “Meant to Be” can stay on top for one more week, Tyler, Brian and Bebe will have the record all to themselves.
