Florida Georgia Line added another hit to the their long list of outside-the-genre collaborations when they teamed up with popstar Bebe Rexha for her sultry single, “Meant to Be.”
Following the massive success of their collaboration, Rexha made history as the first woman to debut a song at number one on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. However, their success didn’t stop there.
Continuing to break records, the FGL-Rexha collaboration just hit 1 billion streams globally, the pop hit earning 19.6 million streams in the United States alone. In addition, “Meant to Be” has stayed at the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for a 26 weeks.
“Some of the coolest moments for us have been the ones we never planned. Going into the writing session that day in LA, we had no idea that it would turn into this,” FGL’s Tyler Hubbard said in regards to the track he wrote with Rexha, Josh Miller and David Garcia. “Seeing how the fans are connecting to the vibe and message of ‘Meant to Be’ has been really amazing.”
In addition to their collaboration with Rexha, FGL have notched massive crossover radio hits with the help of the Backstreet Boys in their most recent No.1 “God, Your Mama, and Me” in addition to their appearance on EDM pop duo The Chainsmokers‘ “Last Day Alive.”
