After spending a record fifty weeks at #1, Bebe Rexha’s “Meant To Be (featuring Florida Georgia Line)” falls to #2 on this week’s Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Kane Brown’s “Lose It” takes over the top spot.

“Lose It,” which was #6 on last week’s chart, soars to #1 in conjunction with the release of Brown’s new album “Experiment.” Release week promotion included performances on last Tuesday’s “The Voice” and last Wednesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

“Lose It,” moreover, continues to post gains at country radio.

This, interestingly, is not the first time a Kane Brown song ended a record-breaking Hot Country Songs reign. Last year, Brown’s “What Ifs (featuring Lauren Alaina)” dethroned Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road,” which had ruled for a then-record 34 weeks.

In addition to “Lose It” at #1 and “Meant To Be” at #2, this week’s Top 5 includes Luke Combs’ “She Got The Best Of Me” (#3), Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” (#4), and Dan + Shay’s “Speechless” (#5).

— As it rises to #1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, “Lose It” improves to a new peak of #28 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100.
