Bebe Rexha & FGL’s “Meant To Be” Earns 48th Week At #1 On Hot Country Songs; Dan + Shay Have Two In Top 5

The reign continues for Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line’s “Meant To Be.”


Bebe Rexha’s megahit “Meant To Be (featuring Florida Georgia Line)” extends its record-breaking reign as the hottest country song in America.

“Meant To Be” celebrates a 48th consecutive week atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, which ranks country songs based airplay, sales and streaming.

A consistently strong performer on the sales and streaming fronts, “Meant To Be” also continues to receive substantial attention at country, adult contemporary, hot adult contemporary and pop radio.

The 48-week reign ranks as an all-time record by a considerable margin. Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road,” the previous record-holder, ruled for 34 weeks.

Luke Combs’ “She Got The Best Of Me” holds at #2 on this week’s chart, while Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” spends another week at #3. The duo also has a second Top 5 hit this week, as “Speechless” rises two places to #4.

Kane Brown’s “Lose It,” also new to the Top 5, rises three spots to #5.
