It was clearly meant to be that Bebe Rexha’s 2017 megahit “Meant to Be,” featuring Florida Georgia Line, enters YouTube’s Billion Views Club.
“Meant to Be” is Florida Georgia Line’s first entry in the Billion Views Club, while Rexha scores her second after her feature credit on David Guetta’s 2014 hit “Hey Mama,” which also features Nicki Minaj and Afrojack.
Rexha’s country-pop crossover hit earned the pop star her career-first Grammy nominations in 2019 for best new artist and best country duo/group performance, the latter of which was also the country group’s first Grammy nod. The song spent 52 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 2 for both acts’ highest-charting song, and spent a record-breaking 50 weeks atop the Hot Country Songs chart.
