Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line are 'Meant to Be' Making History
MULTI-PLATINUM superstar duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE continue to elevate their elite status as world-class powerhouse entertainers driving the history-making “Meant to Be” collaboration with BEBE REXHA into uncharted territory with their PLATINUM-certified single.
“Meant to Be” dominates the No. 1 spot for 12 weeks running on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and nabs Rexha a record for being the longest-leading chart-topper for a song by a lead female. The unprecedented feat only adds to FGL’s record-breaking rank as “Meant to Be” also charges the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart at Top 10-and-rising. FGL last cracked Top 5 on the chart with their breakout smash hit “Cruise” in 2013.
FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Rexha, alongside Josh Miller and David Garcia, penned “Meant to Be,” which Billboard describes as “the ultimate midpoint not only between their respective styles, but for pretty much all of 2018 pop music: Its piano hook is EDM, its alternately snapping and skittering beat is hip-hop, its vocal twang is country and its chorus is smooth pop-soul.” Surpassing 478 million global streams to date, it continues to master both Country and Pop chart airplay simultaneously while the adjoining free-and-easy music video has garnered more than 207.8 million views.
Critics continue to commend the prized hitmakers for the fated collaboration:
“Meant to Be” continues to become a match made in country-pop heaven…” – Billboard
“Piano and gospel-infused organ form the melodic foundation, while a thumping drum loop nudges it into dance territory.” – Rolling Stone Country
“Florida Georgia Line may be a country duo, but they definitely know how to play the game in the pop world…” – Sounds Like Nashville
“sexy groove” – Rare Country
“Florida Georgia Line’s Collab With Bebe Rexha Really Is ‘Meant to Be’” – Taste of Country
Riding a meteoric career high of milestone triumphs jam-packed with colossal headlining tours – like THE SMOOTH STADIUM TOUR 2017 which featured Backstreet Boys, Nelly and Chris Lane – in addition to all-star collaborations – including their 13th No. 1 “God, Your Mama, And Me” (featuring Backstreet Boys), The Chainsmokers’ “Last Day Alive,” Jason Derulo and Hank Williams Jr.’s “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night,” and most recently Morgan Wallen’s “Up Down” plus Hailee Steinfeld and Alesso’s “Let Me Go” (featuring watt) – FGL continues to set the bar as top-shelf trailblazers. Inspired by their unmatched chart-jumping last year, the BMLG Records’ showstoppers have been in the studio working on the successor to their PLATINUM-certified DIG YOUR ROOTS musical evolution which propelled 3X PLATINUM-certified lead single, “H.O.L.Y.” Crushing boundaries and redefining what’s possible, FGL fans can expect bold new music this year.
