As fan demand accelerates, superstar hitmakers FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE and PLATINUM-selling Pop star BEBE REXHA are releasing their hot new collaboration “Meant to Be” to Country radio today. Already a digital smash breaking into Spotify’s Global Top 50, sitting at No. 5 on the iTunes Top Songs chart, and amassing over 80 million streams globally, the pairing originally was not conceptualized as a Country single yet stations organically began spinning the song.
“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,” shares FGL’s Tyler Hubbard. “Seeing how the fans are connecting to the vibe and message of ‘Meant to Be’ has been really amazing.”
FGL’s Brian Kelley adds, “Our passion is our craft, every step along the way from the songwriting, to recording, to hearing our music over the airwaves. And, to know that our fans have been requesting this song and we can now share it with everyone is meant-to-be on a whole new level.”
Hubbard co-wrote the laid-back jam with Rexha, Josh Miller and David Garcia in sunny California. The vibe inspired “Meant to Be,” a song about living in the romantic moment, which appears on Rexha’s new EP, All Your Fault: Pt. 2.
Filmed in New Mexico with director Sophie Muller, the free-and-easy music video is also making a big impression on fans, having already racked up more than 42 million YouTube views. Meanwhile, FGL and Rexha bring their on-screen chemistry to the first national TV performances of “Meant to Be,” appearing on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden tonight (12:37A ET/11:37P CT), and during a special, on-demand presentation for Comcast’s Xfinity customers following the 2017 American Music Awards on ABC on Sunday (11/19) – where the five-time nominees are vying for the fan-voted Favorite Duo or Group – Country.
FGL is currently back in the studio working on a new album, the follow-up to their groundbreaking 2016 release, DIG YOUR ROOTS (BMLG Records). Pushing the duo into a bold new stylistic territory and helping them achieve stadium-headliner status, the project included the 3X PLATINUM-certified lead single “H.O.L.Y.” and PLATINUM-certified hits “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw) and “God, Your Mama, And Me” (featuring Backstreet Boys).
