Bebe Rexha & FGL’s “Meant To Be” Reaches Record-Extending 50 Weeks At #1 On Billboard Hot Country Songs

“Meant To Be” continues its record-setting run at #1.


Bebe Rexha’s “Meant To Be (featuring Florida Georgia Line)” celebrates yet another week as America’s hottest country song.

The smash claims #1 on a 50th consecutive edition of the Billboard Country Songs, extending the record for longest reign in the chart’s history.

Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road,” which previously held the record, ruled for 34 weeks.

The Hot Country Songs chart ranks songs from the genre based on sales, streams and radio airplay (across all formats). Although it has cooled down in all three areas, it remains a strong across-the-board performer.

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.

Dan + Shay’s “Speechless” (#4) and Jimmie Allen’s “Best Shot” (#5) complete the Top 5.
