Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line scored their 14th No. 1 single as their collaboration with Bebe Rexha, “Meant to Be,” ascended to the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart.
“Meant to Be,” which was co-penned by Bebe, Josh Miller, David Garcia and FGL’s Tyler Hubbard, was recently nominated for Top Country Song at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards on May 20.
“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.”
The tune has also resided atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 21 weeks, which is the third longest reign in the history of the chart, behind Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” (34 weeks) and FGL’s “Cruise” (24 weeks).
“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.”
